Rafael Nadal also made comfortable progress, beating Mischa Zverev 6-4 6-3.

Djokovic showed signs of ring-rustiness before defeating Klizan 6-3, 7-6 (7/4). “I wasn’t expecting an easy match,” said Djokovic. “The field is very strong and I got a collision in the first round against a guy who is well known for playing his best tennis on the big stage. But it was a good performance. A tough second set but it’s exactly what I needed at this moment,” Djokovic added.
