Novak Djokovic was seen surrounded by bodyguards in bizarre scenes as he went for a run in Astana. The world No 7 is making his debut at the new tournament in Kazakhstan and was joined by around ten men in suits while out running ahead of his opening match.

Djokovic made a winning start in Astana on Wednesday as he needed just 61 minutes to dispatch Cristian Garin 6-1 6-1 for his most dominant win of 2022 so far, dropping the least games in a whole match this season. It was a routine win for the 21-time Major champion, with the more unusual scenes coming earlier in the morning before the match.

The 35-year-old went for a jog in Astana ahead of his clash with the world No 81 but was seen surrounded by multiple men in suits, who circled the world No 7 as he ran before a series of fans could be seen running after Djokovic and the guards.

It's no secret that Djokovic likes to get out into nature for his workouts, often documenting his time spent in the outdoors on his Instagram account. And the run seemed to pay off for the fifth seed at the tournament, as he advanced to the second round with a straight-set victory later on Wednesday and hinted that he was back to his best form after almost three months on the sidelines.

"I mean from the start to the end it was a great performance," Djokovic said after winning his 12th successive tour match. "And playing in a new tournament, different conditions, first match, it's never easy looking to see how you're going to adapt but I did it perfectly really. I played as well as I can, made him work and used every opportunity presented to me."

6 myths about miscarriage

  6 myths about miscarriage While miscarriage is common, secrecy about pregnancy loss has lent itself to pervasive myths. Our experts debunk the most common myths about miscarriage hereCommon advice is that women should wait until the end of the first trimester before announcing a pregnancy so this can add to the stigma, says Dr. Zev Williams, an obstetrician at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Montefiore Health System in New York. And because it is medically common, the impact of miscarriage is often underestimated. “Miscarriage is a traditionally taboo subject that is rarely discussed publicly,” he says.

The 35-year-old will now face Botic van de Zandschulp for the first time in a bid to reach the quarter-final. The world No 31 was equally as dominant as Djokovic in his own first-round match on Monday, beating Kazakhstan's own Beibit Zhukayev 6-1 6-1.

Djokovic is seeking his third-successive title win and 90th overall at this week's ATP 500, having won Wimbledon in July before he was unable to play the US Open and the Masters tournaments in Canada and Cincinnati as a result of his unvaccinated status before making his return in Tel Aviv last week and winning the tournament.

"Winning a tournament or losing in finals or semi-finals makes a difference mentally," he said after his first match in Astana. "Coming into this tournament I feel confident, I feel excited."
