Djokovic starts Rome Masters campaign in style
Rome: World number two Novak Djokovic made a stylish start to his Rome Masters campaign, blowing away Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 6-1 in just under an hour to reach the third round on Tuesday.
The Serb, the 2008 Rome champion, gave Chardy a torrid time on his serve and produced some stunning cross-court winners in a performance that should raise his morale after a low-key start to the season.
World number one Roger Federer, who had a bye to the second round along with the other top seeds, meets Latvian Ernests Gulbis later on Tuesday in his singles debut on clay this season.
Defending champion Rafael Nadal of Spain will face Germany`s Philipp Kohlschreiber on Wednesday.
