Novak Djokovic made light work of his first round match against Hubert Hurkacz when winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-2. Hurkacz is ranked #44 in the world and today the task should be even easier when taking on Henri Laaksonen who is at #104.
Laaksonen took care of a very capable clay performer in Pedro Martinez Portero in the first round. Set scores of 6-1, 6-0 and 7-6 highlight how strong a performance it was from the Swiss player.
Djokovic’s record at this stage of the French Open is rock solid with no dropped sets at this stage since 2010. We aren’t suggesting he will come unstuck here but the games handicap of 11.5 at Mr Green could be too big for the Serb to overcome. He doesn’t really need to go full throttle at this match and we feel his opponent can keep it respectable.
