Denying Claims Of Being 'Greedy', Novak Djokovic Responds To Boycott Claims


"I feel like I'm building", the five-time grand slam victor told reporters.

After sitting out the last six months recovering from an elbow injury, all eyes were focused on Novak Djokovic, when he took on seasoned American contenter Donald Young.

Former world number 2 Agnieszka Radwanska also made it through after losing the first set to Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko. "But not much of what you have [written] is true".

"Then, because of our results, we just back ourselves".

"I actually don't like her as a player, because I think all that grunting is bad sportsmanship, but she served her ban, so let it be done", said Grant, also a Melbourne resident.

He added: "We wanted to use this opportunity [at our meeting] to speak about certain subjects and see how everyone reacts to that and I guess see what opinions are. There were no talks about a boycott or anything like that".

Djokovic stretched his unbeaten record over Monfils to 15-0, one of the longest at Tour level, after dropping the opening set but just managed to get to the finish line.

Wimbledon's total fund has almost doubled in the last five years, rising from 16.06 million pounds to 31.6 million pounds ($43.59 million) in 2017, although the percentage rises have been greatest for early-round losers.

Having won his fifth Australian Open last year, Federer has a great shot at adding to his legend in this year's tournament, especially if he deals with opponents' best shots as well as handled Ferrell's freaky questions.

Djokovic said before the tournament that surgery wasn't out of the question if he experienced discomfort in the future but simply judging by Tuesday's performance, he looked sharp.

Two-time Australian Open semi-finalist Agnieszka Radwanska rallied from a set and a break down to beat Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko 2-6 7-5 6-3 to reach the third round.
