Zeenews Sports Bureau
Paris: World number one Novak Djokovic opened his French Open campaign with a 7-6, 6-3, 6-1 win over Italy’s Potito Starace to advance to the second round.
"Pressure is always present, and the way I look at it, it’s a privilege and it`s a challenge," Djokovic said. "So you need to try to understand and learn how to deal with it, and if you feel pressure, that means that you`re doing something that is right. So I`m happy - I`m happy to be where I am at this moment."
Djokivic will next face Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia, the world No 99, who ousted former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in four sets.
