The Serb, World No 2, complained about the play court not being covered in order that the ground did not get wet due to the rain here on Monday.

"I played for most of the match quite solid. The end of the match was not so nice from my side because I dropped my serve twice," said Djokovic.

"It was very heavy conditions. The court is not that great, or in a great condition at this moment.

But of course, considering the amount of the rain that we had in last four or five days, it is not easy for people to maintain the court in the right state. They are doing their best," he added in reference to the Philippe Chatrier centre court.
