Djokovic looked really annoyed with his errors. Just wanted to get it over with.

Not a good first set but good enough in the end. That's all you need here.

Didn't Djokovic play a tournament before this one? He called the match the first of the season in the Eurosport interview.

That was an exho.

Djoko was dire at the beginning but improved as the match went on.

Gimeno-Traver was surprisingly good. He returned Novak's serve well and dictated a lot of rallies. Just too many UEs

Pretty good first match imo. Gimeno played out of his mind and the pace was very high in this match. Djoko had trouble with that in the beginning, but after that he played well.

But in less than a two second he corrected himself.

Anyway, grumpy first for Novak set but overall job done in a good way.

At some stages he realy did but, as Eurosport commentator said in the middle of third set - 'Traver sometimes doesnt't think at all'.

Djokovic was fine. He was hitting plenty of good deep groundies and was testing out his forehand dtl.

p.s. his outfit is outrageously awesome.

That must have happened while I was grabbing my laptop to type my question.

Not thrilled. Hope it's just a slow start.

Expected win, Nole did right, this is just first round, don't expect him to play at his best just yet. Gimeno is a good player, I expect good things from him and he's Spanish, all the better. :)
Not much competition for Nole now that Robredo and Soderling are out... :yeah:

if you'd have two pair of eyes, one regular and one on your forehead, you'd have none of those problems.
