Cincy 2R: N. Djokovic def. I. Ljubicic 7-6 (5) 6-4

Routine win for Djokovic . Ljubicic last few years look non-competitive against top players and the same case was today . He had few chances in breaker but he did not have balls to pull the trigger on big points .

I did not except that he will win but he disappoint me with his game . He could even produce some fighting spirit today . He looked funny on Nole's serve . Really bad performance from ljubo .

Very good performance from Novak, struck the ball very clean and aggressively, Ivan made too many errors when in baseline rallies and also was not good enough in regards to his return game, although he served very well which got him out of trouble on occasions. Novak now faces Isner or Chardy, so this could be a decent warm up for those other big servers. Keep it going Djokovic .

Djokovic didn't have a lot to do to win this match... Legenda was just completely OFF .
Congrats, Djoko!

Key for victory was only 13 UE. Surprising.

Novak played an impressive game to break Ljubicic in the 2nd set (first game).

"Playing against Ljubicic with a big serve was a good match before John Isner or Chardy," Djokovic said.

Also said he was lucky with the schedule; best to either play first or during the night session.

He also made sure to mention that he beat Nadal in last year's semis

Well, he used to do that many times in the past, not bothering much on opponent serve and saving strength for his own serve and looking for a chance in a TB. But it wasn't his day today, Novak looked solid in all areas, far from flashy or something, but still ok.
I liked those few "jebem ti mater" from both of them.

Ivan didn't play as good as he can but still had chances to take the first set and to come back in the second. There were some nice winners he hit though and hopefully in the future we'll see more of those and less UEs.
