Jeremy Chardy v Novak Djokovic Live
Novak Djokovic will be up against Jeremy Chardy in the second round at the French Open in Roland Garros after both won their respective encounters in the first round.
Novak Djokovic overcame Joao Sousa in straight sets in the first round although it could not be said that it was a straight forward encounter. Djokovic overcame his opponent 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in the first round fixture on Monday.
The Serb has three out of four grand slam trophies in his cabinet. While the French Open title has eluded him thus far, experts are of the opinion that this could be Djokovic’s year on the red court.
Jeremy Chardy overcame Spaniard D. Gimeno-Traver 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 quite comfortably in the first round to set up this match against Djokovic.
It will be extremely difficult for the Frenchman though as he has so far never won a match against Djokovic in his career. To his credit though, Chardy was able to defeat Roger Federer at Rome sometime back while Djokovic failed to beat the Swiss master.
Chardy certainly has the game to cause an upset. However, it is quite naïve to think that Djokovic will let such a calamity happen so soon at a tournament that he is so desperate to win.
