Djokovic In Ominous Form
World number one and reigning Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic sent a message to his rivals with a fantastic 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Ryan Harrison in the second round on Wednesday.
The Serbian was too good for the American, and now moved into the third round where he’ll face Radek Stepanek.
“I tried to focus on the start and I knew that he had nothing to lose and would come out with his big serves, but I managed to make some very important early breaks at the start of the match,” Djokovic said.
“I was a set up after 20 minutes and it was a mental advantage, I felt much more comfortable on the court.
“I don’t think he was playing at his best, it was probably the occasion playing on the centre court, but I wish him all the best, I think he has a good future.”
