INDIAN WELLS (US), March 10: Novak Djokovic shook off some rust and US qualifier Bjorn Fratangelo on Saturday, opening his ATP Indian Wells Masters campaign with a 7-6 (7/5), 6-2 victory.

The second-round clash was the world number one�s first match since he won his seventh Australian Open title in January.

Djokovic went down an early break to the 128th-ranked Fratangelo, but levelled the set with a break for 5-5. He had to dig down again in the tiebreaker, taking a 4-1 lead before Fratangelo fought back to lead 5-4.

But Fratangelo coughed up a double fault and sent a forehand wide on his own serve and Djokovic was able to seal the set on his first opportunity when Fratangelo sent a forehand wide.

From there Djokovic dominated, sealing the win after one hour and 29 minutes. �To be honest, I was a bit nervous in the beginning, I didn�t play my best. Credit to Bjorn for coming out firing from every corner.� � AP
