Djokovic walks in the first round of Wimbledon

Serbian Novak Djokovic, world number one and current Wimbledon champion, went to the second round of the British Grand Slam tournament by beating German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-5 and 6-3.

South African Kevin Anderson, who last year reached the final where he had to bow to the Serbian, also beat the first round without surprises, beating Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-3, 6-4 and 6-2.

The Spaniards Roberto Bautista and Feliciano López also qualified, defeating the German Peter Gojowczyk by 6-3, 6-2 and 6-3 respectively, and the American Marcos Giron by 6-4, 6-2 and 6-4.

López arrives at Wimbledon with strength after proclaiming himself a week ago, being 113th in the ATP, double champion of the British Queen’s tournament, also on grass, where he won in singles and doubles together with Andy Murray of Scotland.
