Wimbledon - Djokovic Stumbles Into Fourth Round

Novak Djokovic had a tough day at the office on Friday, and needed four sets to battle past Czech veteran Radek Stepanek at Wimbledon. The Serb looked out of sorts to start the match, but eventually steadied the ship enough for a 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 victory.

"I was trying to focus from the start of my match," Djokovic said afterwards. "Obviously I had a lot of chances in the opening set. But being aware of his qualities and experience, I wasn't too surprised with the way he played in important moments.

He was mentally very composed. He was out there to win a match. I was a set down, but managed to make the crucial break in the opening game of the second set, and then I thought I played really well." He next plays countryman Victor Troicki.
