Roland Garros R2 : Djoković def. Kavčič 6-0 6-4 6-4

Unlucky Kavčič, the last 2 sets were quite good considering how poor his form has been this season, some fine defensive stuff.

Good hit out for Djokovic, got to hit plenty of balls, though those netcords were a bit unfair

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Roland Garros R2: [1] Djokovic def. Kavcic 6-0 6-4 6-4

Great effort from Blaz the final two sets. But obviously it wasn't going to be enough today. Regardless, he has a lot to be proud of.

A lot better from Nole today than in R1.

Great play by Kavcic in the final 2 sets, but Djoker just too good.

Last 2 sets were great, Kavcic playing great but Djokovic playing just that little bit better! Very entertaining match.

weird, 6-0 first set lifted Blaž and hindered Novak afterwards

And they mock WTA for grunting. This sounded like gay porn at times.

Very entertaining match, nevertheless. Blaž gave it all, but Novak is just too solid.

I kind of feared the worst for Blaž and it didn't look good after that first set, but he has nothing to be ashamed of, really good effort in the 2nd and 3rd sets. Hopefully gained some valuable experience and insight that should help him in the future.

Re: Roland Garros R2 : Djokovic def. Kavčič 6-0 6-4 6-4

Not like Djokovic was in any danger at all in this match, he has plenty of time to improve when needed for the bigger matches.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Roland Garros R2 : Djokovic def. Kavčič 6-0 6-4 6-4

Started to watch it in the 2nd set and was a rather entertaining match. Some very nice construction of points here and there. Kavcic was trying very hard and nothing to be ashamed of. Fine performance, and Djokovic will raise his level, when needed.

Just too good from Djokovic (well apart from early on in the 2nd set), but Kavcic really showed his best in this match.
Entertaining stuff.

Action, if you write rightly Kavčič, then write Djoković also, everybody forget slash sign on letter C at the end

For the match...I am not happy with clay warrior
