  • Djokovic overcomes slow start to cruise into round of 16

    6/29/12 9:45 PM | Cheryl Murray
    After losing the first set, Novak Djokovic regrouped in the next three to sail past Radek Stepanek and into the fourth round.

    Radek Stepanek, the No. 28 seed is one of the last of a dying breed in tennis; he serves and volleys. His style often doesn’t hold up against the pace of big-hitting baseliners, and that proved to be the case on Friday.

    Djokovic was moving along nicely in the first set with Stepanek just keeping pace, when out of nowhere, the Czech broke to snatch the set out from underneath him.

    Djokovic didn't panic, however. He stuck to his baseline game, playing high-percentage tennis to hit his way past Stepanek. The Serb got an immediate break in the second set and secured an insurance break to level the match at a set a piece.

    From there on out, Djokovic cruised through the match, securing a pair of breaks each in sets three and four for what ended up being a routine match.

    Djokovic will take on countryman and Davis Cup teammate Viktor Troicki in the round of 16.
