Tournament Results & Quick Hits
- At last we saw signs of the old Novak Djokovic as the two-time former champion breezed confidently past compatriot Dusan Lajovic. However a sterner test will wait for him in Borna Coric in the second round.
- There were ugly scenes as Jared Donaldson’s aggressive outbursts against umpire Arnaud Gabas accompanied his straight sets exit.
- It was a welcome return to action from Kei Nishikori who, despite requiring a little treatment to his wrist during the match, came from a set down to beat No. 12 seed Tomas Berdych.
- Also having to work hard for the win was Milos Raonic, who came from a set down against local wildcard Lucas Catarina, making his ATP World Tour main draw debut in his home tournament.
- British No. 1 Kyle Edmund will be in action on Tuesday, along with top seeds Grigor Dimitrov and Alexander Zverev.
