Prediction and Conclusion

Novak Djokovic turned 37 last week, and it is a fact that he is past his prime. The level of his game is not as high as it used to be, but it is clear that he is still mentally strong, and it will take a lot of effort for anyone to beat him at Roland Garros. The home hope Pierre Hugues Herbert is definitely not someone who can be any kind of problem for Djokovic. The Frenchman will have support from the home court at Phillip Chatrier Court, but Djokovic is used to playing against everybody in the building. This will be some type of preparation for the Serbian for the next challenges, and he will win this match in straight sets.
