London Olympics Tennis: Novak Djokovic advances to next roundWimbledon: Novak Djokovic waited out a 3½-hour rain delay Sunday, and when his Olympic match resumed, he paid a heavy price for losing the first two points.


They cost him the opening set against Fabio Fognini of Italy.

The interruption came at 7-all in a tiebreaker, and Djokovic knew he needed to come out of the delay with a fast start on Wimbledon`s grass.


"I was thinking about those two points and the way I should play them," he said. "But of course this is a specific surface. Everything happens very fast."

Once Djokovic fell behind, he quickly rallied and overtook Fognini 6-7 (7), 6-2, 6-2.

It was the only match played on Court 1, and it took all day. The start was delayed nearly three hours.

Djokovic, seeded No. 2, played better as the match progressed and committed only one unforced error in the final set. The victory was his first since he lost three weeks ago to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon semifinals.
