Practice session for No1e. He didn't have to exert too much energy to get the job done.

RG R1: Djokovic d. Nieminen 6-2 7-5 6-2

If that were Nadal instead of Nieminen in the 2nd set, Djokovic would have lost it and lost in 4 sets, a la 2014.

Nice test for Novak.

Jarkko played surprisingly well. Certainly put up a better fight than the other top guys' opponents.

Jarkko was #13. Dont see why people are surprised that he played good.

well, win is whats count... Djokovic played well bellow his max, but he did bring up his game since 2-5 in second, show what is going to take for someone to beat him here

Overall great match for Novak...

Nieminen gives his best, challenge Novak and his response was brutal. Poweful and deep shots, deadly forehand. Ideal match for a first round.

Typical No1e brainfarting in the second set. Other than that, a good match vs tough quality opponent. No1e's draw is hell from the first round. Compare Jarkko's level of play vs those mugs who played vs privileged Federer and Nadal. :mad:

Murray will be too much for Djokovic, who will be too much for Nadal based on what I've seen so far.

Don't tell me any Djokovic fans were in the slightest concerned he'd lose a set :facepalm: no faith. Niemenen was on fire for a few games, Djokovic just had to push it back and wait for the errors. Don't see anyone but Nadal beating him here.

Beckers face looks more and more like boiled ham

Murray is not able to play the same style of tennis at Roland Garros that he played at Madrid, so I don't give Murray a chance of beating Nadal here.
And Djokovic blew his chance in 2013, although you can't do much when Nadal hits 22 winners in a 5th set.

1 down, 5 to go.
6 to go. Federer fanatics will be praying Djokovic gets beaten. If he takes this FO. He will be a tennis God by the close of 2015. More is resting on this FO Than people realize. Were Djokovic to win even two more slams this year and two more Masters. He has the greatest year in tennis history. His two rivals Nadal and Federer start to appear less great.

If he goes one better and does the GRANDSLAM. He will completely over shadow those two. And immediately enter the goat debate. Federer will know he now has a serious contender for his title. His weeks at number 1 are going. It's just a matter of time. If Djokovic wins two more slams this year and two more masters. He will be so far ahead in points. He will stay at Number 1 in the world for at least three more years. If he does the GRANDSLAM forget it. He will be on auto pilot to goatville.
