After having conquered the first step in their French Open campaign with relative ease, Djokovic and Federer will be glad that tougher tests are delayed in their draws. They will face lower ranked opponents in Round 2 as well and are expected to breeze through. Federer especially would have been on his toes as he saw Nadal dwindling against Isner playing his first round match on Tuesday.
Maxime Teixeira from France will be challenging Federer at Court Suzanne Lenglen. With a world ranking of 181, he is not expected to make Roger Federer sweat in the heat. It would be a little more troublesome for Djokovic as he faces Romania’s world ranking 60 in Victor Hanescu.
In other fixtures on Day 4 of the French Open, Richard Gasquet, Juan Martin del Potro, David Ferrer and Jo Wilfred Tsonga will also be in action. Men’s singles in the French Open 2011 promises to be a competitive affair as the challengers for the last 4 will be pushing hard.
Novak Djokovic is nearing in on a record unbeaten 42 games this year and his play looks to be improving day by day. He played flawless Tennis in tournaments prior to the French Open, at Madrid especially. Roger Federer on the other hand is desperate to complete his much awaited career grand slam – he will believe that he can do it inspite of the grown competition.
