Djokovic too strong for Kavcic
Novak Djokovic insists he did not underestimate world number 99 Blaz Kavcic after surviving a second-set scare at the French Open.
The top seed and world number one is safely through to the third round but did not have it all his own way despite blasting through the opening set in 23 minutes.
Djokovic went on to win 6-0 6-4 6-4 but was almost 4-1 down in the second set before leveling at 4-4 and going on to book his passage through and set up a meeting with France's Nicolas Devilder.
The Serbian told atpworldtour.com: "He was defending really well in the second and third sets, especially in the second.
"I gave him the opportunity to come back to the match after a perfect first set, first seven games. Of course I didn't underestimate my opponent.
"I expected him to fight. I expected him to come back. He didn't have anything to lose, and he showed his quality and it was a really, really great second and third set."
Djokovic is bidding to dethrone the King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, and in doing so he would become the first male player since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all of the game's grand slam crowns at the same time.
