Novak Djokovic may have handily won his opening-round match at the French Open, but his opponent had the point of the contest — if not the entire tournament so far.
Midway through the second set of the world's top-ranked men's tennis star's match against Mikael Ymer Tuesday, the 24-year-old Swede hit a sensational, cross-court tweener while charging towards the back of the court to win the point after a hard-fought rally. Djokovic appeared to have Ymer beat with a drop shot near the baseline after the young star charged the net for a volley, but Ymer recovered brilliantly to complete the highlight-reel play.

After the point, Djokovic smiled and applauded Ymer for his efforts as the 17-time Grand Slam champion prepared for his next serve. Djokovic — who has as good a chance as anyone to dethrone Roland-Garros king Rafael Nadal at this year's tournament — went on to defeat Ymer 6-0, 6-2, 6-3 and advance to a second-round matchup Lithuanian Ričardas Beranki on Thursday.
