Djokovic victorious!

There was no drama in Djokovic’s match against Delic as the world’s top-ranked players dominated from start to finish and made light work of the opening singles rubber.
The Serb kept wrong-footing Delic with searing forehands and also unleashed a variety of other weapons, ranging from high-precision backhands as well as delightful drop-shots and volleys on the indoor hardcourt surface.
He sealed the opening set with a second-serve ace, drawing a standing ovation from the home crowd who treated the Croatians to a warm welcome and applauded their national anthem prior to the tie.
The second set produced more of the same as Djokovic demonstrated his superiority in all departments. Having twice broken his battling opponent’s serve, the 27-year old from Belgrade was always in cruise control and doubled his lead although Delic fought as hard as he could to stay in the set.
An improved Delic held his opening two serves in the third set but the writing was on the wall for the 21-year old after Djokovic broke him again, drawing loud cheers from the spectators with a superb drop-volley.
“I was very much aware of my young opponent’s quality. He does have a lot of potential to be very good in the future,” Djokovic said.
He was fighting and put up a great performance today and I am hence happy with my overall performance.
“I took my break point opportunities very well and on the other hand I served confidently and didn’t face any break points at all.”
“I enjoyed the atmosphere very much as I played for the first time in Kraljevo and this region in general. It was a full house and overall a very positive emotion.”
