Novak Djokovic lost only one game as he crushed Dusan Lajovic in the first round of the Monte Carlo Masters.
Having lost his opening matches at the Indian Wells Masters and Miami Open last month, Djokovic was low on confidence as his last victory was at the Australian Open in January.
However, there were no signs of his poor run of form in the Principality on Monday as he blew his fellow Serb away 6-0, 6-1 in 56 minutes.
