Djokovic reassures himself before Roland-Garros

Novak Djokovic won the title of the ATP 250 tournament in Belgrade 2. At home, the world number 1 mastered the inexperienced Alex Molcan in two sets (6-4, 6-3) and will arrive at Roland Garros with confidence .

Novak Djokovic has decided to include the ATP 250 tournament in Belgrade 2 in his preparation program for Roland-Garros. A choice which could question as the two deadlines are brought closer. Well it took him since the world number 1 won on his land, at the “Novak Tennis Center”, his 83rd title. To do this, he dismissed this Saturday in the final the inexperienced Alex Molcan who was playing the third ATP tournament of his career. If the score (6-4, 6-3) means that “Nole” quietly managed his match, this is not quite the case in practice. As in the semi-finals against Andrej Martin, he has lost his serve too many times, exactly four times.

A timely title

However, the local has always glued immediately like his two breaks conceded at 0-0 and 2-2 in the first set, erased in the next game. At the end of a disjointed first set in which seven breaks were made in ten games, Djokovic took the lead and was no longer worried by the Slovak. He raised his arms to the sky after 1h29 ′ of the match to the cheers of the crowd, euphoric to have witnessed his champion’s third title in the Serbian capital after 2009 and 2011. The most important thing was to join Paris with a smile and a newfound confidence. Novak Djokovic has not been missed two weeks after his final lost in Rome against Rafael Nadal. He will face Tennys Sandgren in the 1st round of Roland-Garros.
