  • Djokovic makes successful start

    World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is through to the round of 16 in Monte-Carlo following his straight-sets ousting of Italy’s Andreas Seppi. The top seed moves on to face fellow seed Alexandr Dolgopolov in the next round.

    Novak Djokovic made a successful start to the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, having upended Andreas Seppi in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4. The 24-year-old converted three of 3 break points through an hour and 29 minutes of play.

    Djokovic quickly built a 5-0 advantage in the opening set. The world No. 1 continued the effort to break at 1-1 in set two. A pair of match points came at 5-4 for Djokovic, who closed as Seppi missed a return of serve.

    "I think I served really well when I needed to," Djokovic said. "That's encouraging for the clay because you don't get to rely on your serves as much as maybe on other surfaces, so it's good to have a couple of free points there.

    "I thought I was really focused first set. I played really good. I had a tough opponent, obviously, a quality opponent that plays good on clay. For the first official (clay-court) match since Roland Garros last year, it was satisfying."

    Djokovic completed the match with five aces and 17 winners.

    He will take on 16th seed Alexandr Dolgopolov in the round of 16. The Ukrainian held on to defeat Bernard Tomic in round two, 6-2, 5-7, 6-1.
