Djokovic Cruises, Soderling Battles Into Wimbledon Second Round

Novak Djokovic started his Wimbledon campaign with a strong win over Jeremy Chardy on Wednesday, crushing the Frenchman 6-4, 6-1, 6-1. The first set was a relatively tight affair, but Chardy lost interest in the match after that, committing a flood of unforced errors in the next two sets.

Djokovic is in the same half of the draw as Roger Federer, and might face the Swiss in the semi-final. Robin Soderling also advanced to the second round, but not before battling hard against German Philipp Petzscnher. The Swede eventually won 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6. Soderling lost to Rafael Nadal in last year's tournament.
