Novak Djokovic v Guido Pella Live
Top seeded Novak Djokovic will be up against Argentine Guido Pella in the second round at the French Open 2013.The Serbian Djokovic had an easy first round win in the competition as he demolished David Goffin in straight sets to make it to the second round of the competition.
On the other hand, Pella’s first round was a contrast in every way. He was up against Croatian Ivan Dodig and the two players shared the first four sets before playing an epic fifth set in which Pella finally won 12-10.
Interestingly, Pella entered the tournament with a six-match winning streak broken in the semi-final at the ATP Dusseldorf. He won three qualifiers and three rounds before finally going down in the semi-final.
Djokovic’s form has been scratchy and for now he looks at his most vulnerable. After winning the ATP Monte-Carlo he went down in the first round at the Madrid Masters and then managed only two wins at the Rome Masters before losing to Tomas Berdych.
The two have never played against each other before and while Djokovic will go into the match as favourite against the world number 83 Pella, the Argentine will be battle-hardened after the tough first round match.
