    Djokovic, Monaco advance at London Olympics Novak Djokovic and Juan Monaco are through to the second round in London after respective victories over Fabio Fognini and David Goffin.

    (1) Novak Djokovic d. Fabio Fognini 6-7(7), 6-2, 6-2

    Djokovic avoided a first-round upset at the London Olympics on Sunday by overcoming Fogini in one hour and 52 minutes. A three-hour rain delay struck at the worst of times, with the score tied 7-7 in the opening-set tiebreaker. Fognini came back out and won two consecutive points to steal the first set.

    But that was just a wakeup call for Djokovic. The second-ranked Serb completely dominated the rest of the way, surrendering a mere five points in his last eight service games. Two breaks in each set were more than enough for Djokovic, who will battle Andy Roddick for a spot in the third round.

    (9) Juan Monaco d. David Goffin 6-4, 6-1

    A showdown between two players in the midst of their best seasons on tour was a one-sided affair as Monaco blitzed Goffin in two quick sets on Monday. The 10th-ranked Argentine, a recent winner in Hamburg, improved his 2012 record to an awesome 32-10. He will go up against Feliciano Lopez on Tuesday after Lopez outlasted Dmitry Tursunov 9-7 in the third set.

    "I think I played a good match," said Monaco. "I'm happy with the way I played today. Maybe, the first set I was a little up and down, but then in the second set I played well."
