Djokovic's struggles on the court have been there for everyone to see, with the Serbian, since completing a career Grand Slam by winning the French Open in 2016, struggling to clinch another major. He will have certainly made a few bookmakers change their odds after his emphatic performance.

Roger Federer was broken in his first service game on Thursday at Wimbledon, but the seven-time Wimbledon champion regained his footing quickly to roll past Serbia's Dusan Lajovic, 7-6 (0), 6-3, 6-2 to reach the third round. Gulbis, who has plunged to No. 589 in the rankings because of both physical problems and poor play, powered his way to a 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (3) success.

Novak won 6 out of 7 matches and he will be the favorite today as well, but Gulbis is capable of causing some damage to world number 4, especially if he shows his best tennis. "I served and [the ball] went straight at him". My goal was to be prepared for all those grand slams. And as he next plays a left-handed serve and volley player in Mischa Zverev, he will no doubt relish every fast-paced minute.

The three-time champion was in relentless form in the 30 degree Celsius heat.

Novak Djokovic's first-round match at Wimbledon lasted all of 40 minutes Tuesday.

"We had a little joke about it in the locker room", Djokovic recounted, "saying we should maybe play a practice set on the Centre Court, have the crowd stay".

He sat in a box at courtside alongside a short-term addition to Djokovic's team, the former top-10 player Mario Ancic, whose regular day job is as an investment banker on Wall Street. Federer has won all four previous matches against Zverev in straight sets, including one by a 6-0, 6-0 score.

The world number four continued to remain aggressive and he stretched out to a 4-2 lead with a hold to love. "The goal is to get better every day", he said.

"I'm not sure. I always got along very, very well with John". He served out to a two sets to love lead easily, extending his lead to two sets to love, merely over an hour being played on the court.

Zverev, whose younger brother Alexander is also in the third round at Wimbledon, suggests that, with nothing to lose, he may taken an even more cavalier approach than usual.

Fognini, one of the more combustible players on the tour, already owns the record for the biggest single fine in Wimbledon history after being penalised $27,500 in 2014.

The Latvian thumped several early winners off the Djokovic serve - one of which saw him break on his way to a 3-1 lead in the opening set.

Pavlasek was serving to stay in the match but he was unable to do so as he committed an untimely double fault to hand Djokovic his first match point. Gulbis also has yet to drop a set this tournament and is coming off a match in which he hit 60 winners and 25 aces.

The 35-year-old, billed by many as the tournament favourite, eventually coped well with Lajovic's early enthusiasm to take the first set on a tie break before turning on the style to quickly wrap up the second 6-3. He eliminated the unforced errors and looked like the old Novak.
