Novak Djokovic will be confident of progressing beyond the second round as he faces Ricardas Berankis at the French Open on Thursday. They met each other a few weeks ago with Djokovic winning in straight sets, and on clay I expect the world No.1 to be even more convincing.

Novak Djokovic Form


Novak Djokovic is unbeaten in 2020 and already has one Grand Slam to his name this year. He beat Milos Raonic, Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem in an epic 5 set final to claim the Australian Open.

The World No. 1 then won in Dubai, beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3 6-4 in the final. Thereafter he added the Western and Southern Open, beating Milos Raonic 1-6 6-3 6-4 in the final.

Djokovic looked on course for another Grand Slam title at the US Open but was disqualified in the round of 16 for accidently hitting a line judge with a ball.

Novak Djokovic put that disappointment behind him by winning the Italian Open, beating Filip Krajinovic, Dominik Koepfer, Casper Ruud before a 7-5 6-3 win against Diego Schwartzmanin the final. 

The Serb cruised into the second round of the French Open by beating Mikael Ymer 6-0 6-2 6-3, and hardly broke a sweat in doing so.
