Defending champions Djokovic took an early step closer to creating history at the Australian Open tennis tournament by beating Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu with a straightforward 6-2 6-4 7-5 result.

“It was a good performance for a first round,” Djokovic said after his win.

“I felt I was in control of the match in the opening two sets.

“Then, you know, he started playing better, striking the ball quite well from both sides on the baseline. I thought he was serving really precisely and really well.

“It was tough to break. But in the end, that 11th game, I made some good shots, good points and managed to go through in straight sets.”

In other results, fourth seed David Ferrer and fifth seed Tomas Berdych were amongst the players who advanced into the next phase as well.

Berdych picked up a 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 victor over Michael Russell, while Ferrer defeated Belgian Olivier Rochus, 6-3 6-4 6-2.

“I was able to find my rhythm and did not have to stay on the court that long which is a positive,” Berdych said.

No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic was too strong for Lleyton Hewitt, beating the Australian 7-6 (7/4) 7-5 6-3.

“It’s as tough as it gets to play Lleyton here and I am really happy to have won in three sets,” Tipsarevic said.

“The first two sets could have gone either way but I felt I had more control in the third.”
