The French Tennis Federation announced that it will not take a position on what players say. This decision was made a day after Novak Djokovic delivered a political message on the camera following his first round victory at the French Open. Novak Djokovic, for those who are not familiar, wrote: “Kosovo, the heart of Serbia.” “Stop the violence” in the camera.
Djokovic said, “As an ethnic Serb, I am hurt by what’s happening in Kosovo.” Our people were expelled from municipalities. It’s the least I can do. As a public person, I feel obligated to show my support for all of Serbia and our people. Kosovo is the heart of Serbia, our stronghold, where the most important historical events took place, and the largest battle was fought. It also has the highest number of monasteries. “There are many reasons I wrote this.”
Novak Djokovic faces Marton Fucsovics at the second round
In the first round, the World No.3 Serbian Novak Djokovic smashed Aleksandar Djokovic with ease: 6-3 6-2 7-6 (7-1). The World No.3 was comfortable despite the Serbian being broken twice in set three.
Unseeded Italian Marton Fuchsovics has passed the first round after beating the Frenchman Hugo Grenier in four sets: 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-3. If he wants to stand a chance against the 22-time Grand Slam winner in the second round, the Italian must raise his game. Djokovic has won all four matches between the two.
Djokovic is looking to improve his service game in the second round after struggling in the last set of the first round. If Djokovic can find his level, he’ll win the fifth match in a row against the Italian.
