“With the support Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has on home soil, I needed to start with a high intensity, good movements and try to get as close to baseline as possible,” said Djokovic.
“I prepared well with my team and executed very well. The scoreline was perfect for me and I’m very happy with that performance.” “I came with the exact level of intensity that I was looking for before the start of the match,” said Novak. “Two years ago was kind of a similar situation where I started very well, won the set 6-1 and I was 4-2 up and then he managed to come back. Then we had the tough match that ended up in five sets. I didn’t want the similar scenario.”
Match statistics: aces (1-5), double faults (1-2), winners (18-16), unforced errors (18-38), total points won (86-51).
Novak will face Milos Raonic on Tuesday.
