Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has once again underlined how much he loves playing in Australia. Djokovic, who led to Serbia to winning the inaugural ATP Cup, is now bidding to claim the main glory at the Australian Open.
On Wednesday, record seven-time Australian Open champion Djokovic saw off Japanese Tatsuma Ito 6-1 6-4 6-2 to reach the third round at Melbourne Park. "It's only second round. I do have to keep going,” Djokovic said after beating Ito, per the tournament's website.
“I feel comfortable and confident playing in Australia. History of my results here have been very positive." No. 2 seed Djokovic didn't allow Ito a single break point and he will be hoping to have the similar serving performance in round three against Yoshihito Nishioka.
"My serve was working extremely well in first round and second round. That's something I worked on in the off-season. That's one of the priorities I guess of the training sessions, trying to get that I think advantage of winning a lot of easy points on the first serve," Djokovic said. “It has been paying off so far I think in ATP Cup and here, two matches”.
