Novak Djokovic is relishing a "fresh start" with Marian Vajda back in his corner and says he can play without pain for the first time in two years after outclassing Dusan Lajovic at the Monte Carlo Masters.

Donaldson, ranked 51st and making his first appearance at the clay-court tournament, was jeered by the crowd on center court.

It was the type of result the ninth-seeded Djokovic was looking for as he seeks to regain his form.

"It's obvious that sometimes when you play a rally with 56 shots as I did with Novak (Djokovic) a couple of years ago in the final (US Open 2013), you can not expect a good point if you have 25 seconds on the next point", said the 16-time Grand Slam champion.

His depature coincided with Nadal's return from injury, with the Spaniard optin not to play in any of the hard court tournaments at the start of the year.

MONACO (AP) - After easing into the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters on Monday, a relieved Novak Djokovic said his troublesome right elbow no longer bothers him.

The Serb saw the beginning of the 2018 season disrupted by his long-term elbow injury, which reared its ugly head during his fourth-round exit to Hyeon Chung, before undergoing a 'small medical intervention and subsequently losing back-to-back opening matches at Indian Wells and Miami to Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel and France's Benoit Paire.

"I'm very happy as he (Vajda) is more than a coach".

The forward has played 97 matches as both a starter and a substitute since the Portuguese manager replaced Louis Van Gaal in August 2016.


Beene can hang around in this match if he can continue to get his first serves in play, but that doesn't mean I'm predicting an upset. "I missed him. I have a feeling that he missed me or tennis or both". "He's always there for me, knows me inside out". He's a friend. He's someone I can share a lot of things with, whether it's professional or private life.

"He knows me inside out".

"The reality is I've played six or seven matches since July". We're still in a very good relation.

This will be the second match between Djokovic and Ćorić.

Unseeded American Donaldson squared up to Gabas in unsavoury scenes when he insisted a Ramos-Vinolas serve was out during the second set of his 6-3 6-3 loss. "Still, I thought all in all, it was a great start of the tournament".

"I feel like Tomas was struggling little bit in second, and third too".

Earlier, Karen Khachanov beat Australian wild card Thanasi Kokkinakis 7-5 6-4 to advance. Rublev prevented Haase from recording his 200th career victory.
