Top seed Novak Djokovic progressed into the second round of Wimbledon with a 6-3 7-5 6-4 victory over Florian Mayer.

Mayer put up a gutsy fight against the 2011 champion on Centre Court; however the world number one outlined his title credentials with a convincing display.

A break in the 11th game of the second set proved the key moment for the Serb.

“It was my first match on a grass court this season and my first at Wimbledon, and I’m satisfied,” Djokovic told BBC Sport.

“It was tricky, because Florian Mayer is a very good opponent with a good variety of shots. His game is well suited for grass. It took a lot of effort to come through.

“There are still a few things I would like to do better on. I could serve better. But my game is there. I’m still trying to find my rhythm.”

Australian Bernard Tomic defeated American 21st seed Sam Querrey 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-3) 3-6 2-6 6-3, while 28th seed Jeremy Chardy of France was too strong for Ryan Harrison as he claimed a 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 7-5 6-2 success.

Kei Nishikori of Japan, the 12th seed, beat Matthew Ebden 6-2 6-4 6-3, while big-serving 27th seed Kevin Anderson was a 6-4 6-2 6-1 winner over Olivier Rochus.

Eighth seed Juan-Martin del Potro eased to a 6-2 7-5 6-1 success over Albert Ramos and German 13th seed Tommy Haas beat Dmitry Tursunov 6-3 7-5 7-5.
