Despite having to work hard, Novak Djokovic beat South Korean Kwon Soon-woo in four sets to advance to the Wimbledon second round.
The World No. 3 easily won the first set, but his unseeded opponent surprised everyone by winning it 6-3 in the second.
The six-time Wimbledon champion Djokovic, though, was not in the mood for a shock and won the following two sets to triumph: 6-3 3-6 6-3 6-4 on Centre Court.

The world No. 81 proved to be an uncomfortable first-round test for the number one seed, and Djokovic’s performance wasn’t the most convincing.
Djokovic, however, delivered when it counted, moving on to the next round of a championship he hopes to win for the fourth time straight.
The 35-year-old Serbian became the first player to accumulate 80 singles victories across all four Grand Slam competitions with this historic win.
Djokovic said it was a “honor and pleasure” to return to the Center Court after the game.
