Djokovic responds to McEnroe comparing him to Tiger Woods

Novak Djokovic sizzles at Wimbledon

The 12-time major victor, whose world began to unravel on these courts 12 months ago, weeks after he became the holder of all four Grand Slam titles, has looked distant and disturbed on the tennis court in recent times. He will have certainly made a few bookmakers change their odds after his emphatic performance. Djokovic, the second seed, whose shock third round loss to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon previous year precipitated a worrying decline in form, will next face either Juan Martin del Potro or Ernests Gulbis.

"I felt very good today in terms of my game, it just keeps going in the right direction", added the second seed, who is looking to salvage his season after losing his Australian and French Open crowns. He consolidated his break advantage with a hold to love.

He came up against another clay court specialist in the first round at Wimbledon, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets.

Three-time major champion and former No. 1 Lindsay Davenport will serve as a "legend ambassador" for the WTA Finals, which will be held in Singapore from October 22-29.

The three-time champion was in relentless form in the 30-degree heat. "It's the first time it's ever happened".

"If she had to just play the men's circuit that would be an entirely different story".

The former world number one continued to remain untroubled on his serve, and he bossed the rallies, and he repeatedly came forward to produce half volley winners.

In the third set, Radwanska got the early break in the third game to take a 2-1 advantage.

So we're starting to say: "'Wait a minute, is this possible with him [Djokovic]'".

Over 150 firefighters worked the fire Wednesday night and made a line to keep the fire from crossing into the small town of Mayer. Firefighters in Washington State were battling three fires near Wenatchee that had grown to about 37 square miles (95 square km).

Djokovic and Federer both won their opening matches after their opponents retired with an injury.

Djokovic said after the second round encounter: "It was a very warm day, it wasn't easy to play point after point and some long rallies".

"Well, first of all, it makes me look old", he chuckled.

He boasts a 4-0 career record over the left-handed serve-and-volleyer including a straight sets win on grass in Halle last month.

Roger Federer has risen above mere mortals on Wimbledon's lawns over the past 14 years so it was nearly comforting to learn the king of cool had an attack of nerves before his second-round match on Thursday.

Djokovic, ranked No. 4 at Wimbledon, spoke after his second-round win, by 6-2, 6-2, 6-1, over debutant Adam Pavlasek of the Czech Republic. With Djokovic committed to the net following a weak drop shot, Pavlasek seized his chance to stroke the ball into the space behind and take the match to 3-2.

In May, a downbeat Pavlasek had expressed such concern about the state of his game to Czech media that he said it might take a psychiatrist or psychologist to set him back on track.
