Overview

In-form Djokovic will look to continue his golden run when he takes on France's Robert on Wednesday. The defending champion comes into this clash after winning the recently concluded Madrid Open. In fact, the Serb now has a record 29 career ATP World Tour Masters crown.

The four-time Rome Masters winner already has five titles to his name this year and goes into this competition as the favourite to add a sixth.

Not much is known about 35-year-old Robert, who is best known for beating world number six Tomas Berdych at the 2011 Roland Garros. The Frenchman is ranked 103 in the world and it is unlikely that he will shock Djokovic at this stage of his career.
