Almost without disheveled, beyond the tiebreaker he had to play in the third set of his second-round match against Molcan, Novak Djokovic is already in the second round of Roland Garros, after winning 6-3, 6-3 and 6-2 in 1h44 to Aljaz Bedene. It reaches this point for the 16th time, 13th consecutive. The world number one, who spent 5h58 on the track (less than two hours on average), will face his first category rival, Diego Schwartzman, in the round of 16 on Sunday. The Argentine is sweet and this Friday he completely dominated a difficult opponent, the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, whom he defeated 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 in 2h15. The head-to-head is dominated by the Serbian by a resounding 6-0.
