Novak Djokovic v Grigor Dimitrov Live
Top seeded Novak Djokovic has a tough third round opponent in Grigor Dimitrov and the two will face each other on Saturday at the French Open 2013.
It has the potential to be an exciting match for a couple of reasons. One, this is the first seeded player the top-ranked Djokovic will play this tournament and it could be a tough one. Secondly, Dimitrov showed great gumption in defeating Djokovic in the second round at the Madrid Masters a few weeks ago, on clay court too.
What this will do is to ensure that Djokovic is on his toes taking on an opponent which has lost to him twice already. However, the one match that he did beat Djokovic in was a tough 7-6, 6-7, 6-3 victory.
Djokovic hasn’t spent too much time on the court, winning both his first two round matches in straight sets, beating David Goffin and Guido Pella.
Dimitrov hardly broke into a sweat when Alejandro Falla retired from their opening round encounter before he crushed French wild-card Lucas Pouille in straight sets in their second encounter. The vital question is whether Djokovic will have the game to put the previous defeat at the hands of Dimitrov aside and crush the Bulgarian?
