This will be the first round of this year Roland Garros Grand Slam in France between Novak Djokovic vs Mikael Ymer. It was very doubtful if the tournament would actually happen because of Covd-19, and even if it would, will it attract the top players. However, it will happen and most of the top players are coming, including the Nr.1 of the world Novak Djokovic. To have more insights on this Novak Djokovic vs Mikael Ymer match, please read our preview below.
French Open was always the toughest of Grand Slams for Novak. The main reason was Nadal’s dominance on the clay, but in the recent tournaments, there were losses to other players. Djokovic is coming to France after winning his 36th Masters in Rome and a huge sensation in the Us Open tournament, where he was disqualified in the first set against Carreno Busta. It was one of the most controversial decisions in tennis history and Novak lost a chance to win another Slam quite easily. Knowing how Serbian makes conclusions, he should come calm, relaxed, and focused on this Slam and prove that he is still the best in the world.
World number 80 had a tough-luck with the draw this year, because facing the best player in the first round isn‘t promising a successful tournament. However, Ymer belonged to Next Gen and is a fast and accurate player, this might help him to stay in the match for a bit longer, but he also has problems with motivation. If Mikael sees the match doesn‘t go his way, he might stop trying to overcome the opponent, and just tries to finish the match quicker. So it will depend a lot on how the match starts. Ymer played only 4 matches on clay this year and lost the last two of them. If he will play in the same manner, Novak here will have a straight-sets win.
