Between politics and double faults

Before the second round game, the world association ITF had announced that Djokovic did not have to fear any sanctions for his action after the opening match. The two-time Paris winner wrote “Kosovo is the heart of Serbia” on the lens of a TV camera and was reprimanded by France’s sports minister, among others.

In terms of sport, Djokovic initially found it difficult and had to give up his serve for the first time with a double fault to make it 5: 4. He later scolded his team in the stands.

The 20-year-old Spaniard only allowed himself a few negligence in the 6: 1, 3: 6, 6: 1, 6: 2 in 2:25 hours against the Japanese Taro Daniel in the second set. He now meets Canadian Denis Shapovalov, who is 26th seeded. The first contender for the title was Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece who made it into the third round 6: 3, 7: 6 (7: 4), 6: 2 against the Spaniard Roberto Carballés Baena.
