Novak Djokovic brushes off Dusan Lajovic at the Monte Carlo Masters

Novak Djokovic brushes off Dusan Lajovic at the Monte Carlo Masters

Beene can hang around in this match if he can continue to get his first serves in play, but that doesn't mean I'm predicting an upset.

It was the first time the Serb, because of the drop in his ranking, failed to get a first-round bye in Monte Carlo since his first appearance in 2006.

"I was unable to do any physical work because the psoas (muscle) was affecting all the movements I could do", he said.

"I'm very happy as he (Vajda) is more than a coach".

"He's more like a brother, a father. someone I can share a lot of things with, whether it's professional or private life", Djokovic said.

"The reality is I've played six or seven matches since July".

Djokovic took the second half of past year off and then had a medical procedure in February.

Maintaining that Monday's win is a "great start" to the ongoing clay-court tournament, the two-time champion also expressed delight at joining hands with Marian Vajda, almost an year after parting ways with his long-time coach.

Nadal will open against either Slovenian Aljaz Bedene or a qualifier before a potential second round against Roger Federer's Miami conqueror Kokkinakis or Russian big hitter Khachanov.

" He says he will love to play against me again in best-of-five sets on clay. Then a few days later he says he will not play in one event, so there's a little bit of controversy with that." .

He touched upon his split with Agassi and Stepanek, insisting there was no acrimony. So Indian Wells and Miami were really kind of a struggle on the court for me mentally.

Here's a look at the main talking points ahead of the action on the red dirt of the Principality. "Nothing personal, no bad feelings. We're going to be seeing each other and still keep on being friends".

Meanwhile, Japan's Kei Nishikori, who is recovering from a wrist injury, took down 12th-seeded Czech Tomas Berdych 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

"It's actually great to come back this tournament", said Nishikori. The 36-year-old confirmed on his website that he would be skipping the clay court season, but hasn't decided on whether he'll play the French Open.

Bautista Agut defeated German Peter Gojowczyk 6-4, 6-3; Raonic outlasted wild card Lucas Catarina of Monaco 3-6, 6-2, 6-3; and Ramos-Vinolas recorded a 6-3, 6-3 victory over American Jared Donaldson.

He then squared up to Gabas and shouted: "Yes it is, yeah it is", as he insisted his mark was right and the umpire's call of in was wrong.
