LONDON (AP)—Top-seeded Novak Djokovic eased into the second round of Wimbledon with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 win over Florian Mayer of Germany on Tuesday.

Bidding to win his second title at the All England Club, Djokovic was playing his first match of the year on grass after losing in the semifinals at the French Open. He managed the switch from clay perfectly and controlled most of the match, saving the three break points he faced.

Djokovic won his only Wimbledon title two years ago.
