Novak Djokovic was a break down in the second set against Finland’sJarkko Nieminen but recovered to record a 6-2 7-5 6-2 win in the French Open first round at Roland Garros.

World number one and tournament favourite Djokovic began his latest bid to complete a career Grand Slam with a solid enough win over world number 87 Nieminen, who served for the second set leading 5-4 but could not quite scramble over the line to make matters more interesting.

“I always feel a lot of emotion when I get back on this court,” said the top seed Djokovic, who is chasing a ninth Grand Slam title.

“This year I’m playing very well so far and I hope I will get the confidence I have had since the beginning of the year in the French Open.”
