Novak Djokovic made no mistake and conquered his first victory at Roland Garros 2023. A triumph against Alexander Kovacevic in three sets, with the result 6-3, 6-2, 7-6. The Serbian tennis player had a good approach to the match, but as the minutes went by he became more and more nervous, losing concentration in the most important moment, in the third set, when he was about to end the game.

Former world number 1 and former Djokovic's coach, Boris Becker, publicly congratulated Novak Djokovic for a good start to the 2023 French Open. On Instagram, Becker wrote: "Good start of the tournament."

Nole talked about his victory

Djokovic, after the win, said in the press conference: "Aleks played very well, especially in the third set, and he made me sweat to get this victory.

We actually trained a couple of times actually during the US Open a few years ago. And of course we speak the same language, as he has Serbian origins. We get along very well. He is doing his best and I think he has the game. He played very well and performed very well.

You know, of course I want to dominate against whoever I play: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I think I played very well and kept things under control for two and a half sets, then less in the final part of the third set.

But I managed to keep my nerve and played pretty much a perfect tiebreak. So overall satisfied and happy with my level. I can always play better, I know I can do it, but given the conditions too, they were quite tricky today with a lot of wind.

It was a good match." In the press conference it's time to go back in time: when ten years ago, Novak Djokovic lost the final against Andy Murray at Wimbledon: "Obviously it wasn't a great result for me in the end, it hurts to lose a Grand Slam final, especially Wimbledon.

At the end of the day though, I was happy for Andy because he deserved it. He was working so hard to get his hands on the Wimbledon title, and he did it. Obviously he had the whole nation behind him, I was happy for him, because we've known each other for so long.

But for me obviously losing a game was not a good feeling, but he was the better player that day, and it was kind of the perfect scenario for Great Britain and for him."
