Djokovic starts his defence with comfortable win
NOVAK Djokovic began the defence of his Wimbledon crown with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 victory over former world number one Juan Carlos Ferrero on Centre Court.
As last year's winner, the Serbian had the honour of opening proceedings under sunny skies, and, a little early rustiness aside, he was rarely troubled.
Djokovic relaxed as the match went on, moving better and better, and he eased through to a second-round clash with American youngster Ryan Harrison or Lu Yen-hsun.
In the women's singles, five-time champion Venus Williams lost in the opening round at Wimbledon for the first time since the year she made her debut at the tournament.
