    Djokovic poised to complete career slam in Paris World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is set to headline clay-court competition at the French Open, looking to capture his fourth consecutive Grand Slam title. The Serbian star enters the 128-player draw as the top seed.

    Novak Djokovic makes his return to competition after finishing runner-up to six-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal in Rome. The 25-year-old is 30-5 for the season, bolstered by title-winning runs at the Australian Open and Miami.

    Djokovic looks to hold all four Grand Slam championships after winning Wimbledon, the US Open and his third Australian Open title in January.

    The world No. 1 tops a competitive quarter of the draw that includes (5) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, (11) Gilles Simon (14) Fernando Verdasco, (18) Stanislas Wawrinka, (22) Andreas Seppi, (28) Viktor Troicki and (30) Jurgen Melzer.

    Other players in the section are former world No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko, Fabio Fognini, Thomaz Bellucci, Xavier Malisse, Ryan Harrison, Ernests Gulbis and former World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt.

    Djokovic will begin his campaign against Italian veteran Potito Starace in the first round.

    The nearest seed to Djokovic is Melzer, who looms as a possible third-round opponent. Further progress through the tournament may set a round of 16 meeting with Verdasco and a quarterfinal clash with Tsonga.

    Should the seeds hold through to the second week, Djokovic looks to a probable semifinal showdown with 2009 champion Roger Federer.
