Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic walked in the second round of the Australian Open in a light battle against the Japanese invited by the Tatsuma Ito tournament after endorsing a severe reprimand that was expressed on the scoreboard in the form of 6-1, 6-4 and 6-2.

The Belgrade, who has seven titles in Melbourne Park, will have a new Japanese rival in the next round after the inspired Yoshihito Nishioka beat the British Daniel Evans 6-4, 6-3 and 6-4.

The effectiveness to the rest of the Serbian in the first two services of the Asians would be an advance of the script that would determine the tonic of the party, which was controlled by the current champion during the entire clash.

The only halo of inspiration that his rival enjoyed was during most of the second set after the Japanese maintained his service until four equals.

“I am playing against all the Japanese. The preparation is going to be similar to today for the match against Nishioka. He is one of the fastest players. I know his strengths and weaknesses, so I will try to take advantage of it,” said Djokovic, who defeated to his next rival in the last Davis Cup played in Madrid for a severe 6-1 and 6-2.
