    World No. 1 Novak Djokovic made a successful start to the 2012 French Open, having held on to defeat Italy’s Potito Starace in straight sets. The top seed moves on to face Slovakia’s Blaz Kavcic for a place in the round of 32.

    Novak Djokovic advanced to the second round by virtue of his straight-set ousting of veteran Potito Starace. The 25-year-old passed through the match without losing serve, 7-6(3), 6-3, 6-1.

    After winning the opening-set tie-break, Djokovic secured service breaks at 3-2 in set two and 2-1 in set three. He completed the first-round effort with six aces and 39 winners.

    "(My) mind-set is always positive and I'm always expecting from myself a lot," said the World No. 1.

    "I had the best year-and-a-half of my career and I believe I'm at the peak of my career at this moment. I definitely want to use this confidence I have and try to make a good result here in Roland Garros."

    Djokovic is slated to face Blaz Kavcic in the next round. Kavcic dismissed former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt early Monday, 7-6(2), 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-3.
