Novak Djokovic through to third round at Wimbledon

LONDON: Novak Djokovic made it through to the third round at Wimbledon on Thursday with a straight sets win over Horacio Zeballos of Argentina.

Djokovic, the three-time champion, needed treatment on his left thigh on Court Two but still had too many weapons for Argentina’s Horacio Zeballos, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-3.

Djokovic has now made the third round for 10 consecutive years and will face either British 21st seed Kyle Edmund or US qualifier Bradley Klahn.

For Djokovic, meanwhile, victory was his 60th at Wimbledon – making him just the fifth man to claim 60 wins at the All England Club in the Open Era.

Djokovic hit 15 aces and 31 winners in a commanding win over 33-year-old Zeballos, who was a top 40 player in 2013 but was playing at Wimbledon ranked a lowly 126.

He faces either British 21st seed Kyle Edmund or US qualifier Bradley Klahn in Saturday’s third round.
