Alex Molcan played very hard in the confrontation Novak Djokovic in the 2nd round of Roland Garros this year

The two sides have met once in the past. That was when Djokovic beat Molcan 6-4, 6-3 in the final of the Belgrade 2 clay tournament a year ago when Nole was crowned in his home country of Serbia. Molcan is also a student of coach Marian Vajda, an old teacher who has been with Djokovic for a long time before.

Entering the match on Suzanne Lenglen, world No. 1 Djokovic entered the match impressively and soon broke in the fourth game when his opponent hit his forehand across the court to give him a 3-1 lead. Nole had another break when Molcan cut the ball incorrectly in the 8th game, thereby helping the No. 1 seed to win 6-2 in the first set.

In the second set, the turning point came in the 6th game when the 38th-ranked player in the world Molcan hit the ball and was 30-40 behind. That advantage was preserved by Djokovic to help him win 6-3 in this set after a slightly deep backhand from Molcan.

Drama came in the third set when Djokovic broke first thanks to an extremely classy short ball on the net when he had an external advantage in the third game. But Molcan suddenly demanded a break in the game shortly after to level the score 2. All thanks to the situation that Nole missed the wire. The balance was maintained, then forced the two sides to enter the tie-break series, where Djokovic showed his bravery to win 7-4 points and closed the match after 2 hours and 16 minutes.

For the second time in a row, defeating Alex Molcan on clay on the day he faced his old teacher Marian Vajda, Novak Djokovic entered the third round of Roland Garros this year against Aljaz Bedene (Slovene).
