Novak Djokovic laid out his title credentials in an exemplary performance in the first match on Centre Court at the Championships this year.

The defending Wimbledon champion suffered a slight setback in his first round match, losing the first set to British 19-year-old wildcard Jack Draper.

However, the world No. 1 quickly rectified the situation, claiming the next three sets to come through in four sets and just over two hours on-court.

After finding his feet, Djokovic was on imperious form, including winning a game in under a minute with four straight aces.

In fact, Djokovic went on to serve 25 aces in the whole match, double faulting just once and winning 87% of points behind his first serve.

His teenage opponent was making his Wimbledon main draw debut after an impressive display at Queen’s where he beat top-40 players Jannik Sinner and Alexander Bublik.

The Serb surrendered just five games after dropping the opening set, racing into the second round of the 2021 Championships.
