The top seed, Novak Djokovic, defeated the Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-1 6-4 6-2 on Wednesday to advance to the third round of the championships.
He continued to display all the dominance that has earned him the last three Wimbledon crowns.
The 35-year-old, who is vying for his fourth consecutive Wimbledon victory and seventh overall, appeared shaky during his first victory over Kwon Soon-woo on Monday, but he performed up to his usual high standards against the 79th-ranked Kokkinakis.
There were no indications of a repeat shock throughout the match on Centre Court as the 20-time major champion commanded terms from the outset. The Australian famously defeated Roger Federer in the second round of the Miami Masters in 2018.
The Serb, who had previously beaten Kokkinakis in straight sets at Roland Garros seven years prior, broke his opponent’s service early in each of the three sets, for a total of five breaks of serve throughout the match.
On his own serve, Djokovic faced just one break point. He won the match in two hours on his second match chance, advancing to face either Alejandro Tabilo of Chile or fellow Serb Miomir Kecmanovic in the third round.
