Tennis-Djokovic eases into Wimbledon second round
LONDON, June 25
LONDON, June 25 (Reuters) - Top seed Novak Djokovic proved rock solid as he cruised past Germany's Florian Mayer 6-3 7-5 6-4 to reach the second round of Wimbledon on Tuesday.
The Serb broke 34th-ranked Mayer's opening service game and never looked troubled on Centre Court, wrapping up victory by swiping away a winning forehand.
Djokovic was back in action for the first time since losing a semi-final epic against Rafa Nadal at the French Open and looked sharp on the lush grass.
