BELGRADE, Serbia -- The Djokovic family did not enjoy any success at their home tournament.
Marko Djokovic, a wild-card entry, was broken four times and never forced a break point of his own as Volandri beat him 6-3, 6-1.
The tournament is organized by the Djokovic family. Novak, the world's top-ranked player, pulled out because of the recent death of his grandfather, decision he called one of the hardest of his career.
In other first-round matches Monday, Dusan Lajovic of Serbia defeated fellow wild-card entry Evgeny Donskoy of Russia 7-5, 6-4, and Ivan Dodig used six breaks to overcome Adrian Ungur of Romania 6-2, 6-7 (4), 6-4.
