Djokovic surpasses his debut in Toronto against Muller and advances to the second round

Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, world number one, surpassed his debut at the Rogers Cup tournament in Toronto (Canada), sixth Masters 1,000 of the season, by defeating Gilles Muller from Luxembourg in two sets, 7-5 and 7-6 (3), after 1 hour and 44 minutes of the game.

Djokovic, who was returning to the competition after losing at Wimbledon to American Sam Querrey, turned the tiebreaker around in the second heat thanks to six consecutive points that certified his ticket to the round of 16, where he will face the Czech Radek Stepanek.

The Serbian took advantage of the first gap in the service of the Luxembourg player, number 37 in the world ranking, in the first round, who served a total of 11 direct aces during the match.

In the second round, Czech veteran Radek Stepanek awaits him, from the qualifying round, who defeated local Peter Polansky in two sets, 7-6 (5) and 6-4.

Likewise, the second seed, the Swiss Stan Wawrinka, and the third seed, the Japanese Kei Nishikori, also got their pass to the second round.
