Novak Djokovic beat Albert Ramos-Vinolas 7-5, 6-3 Monday night at the BNP Paribas Open in 85 minutes.
“It wasn’t as good as the first round, that’s for sure, but a win is a win,” said Djokovic, who dropped serve twice and finished with 32 unforced errors to 18 winners.
“I did struggle a lot, had some unforced errors. From the back of the court I didn’t feel so great. But towards the end of the match was better, so hopefully it can be better in the next one too. I definitely need to work tomorrow on the balance and hopefully in the next one there will be fewer mistakes.”
“It will be totally different against Isner, not as many rallies,” said Djokovic. “There will be a lot of serves, returns. Got to be ready to battle for the few points that will decide that match. He has a big serve. His entire game depends on his serve. he serves a high percentage of first serves and can beat any player on any surface. If he has a good day with serving, it’s going to be very difficult for me.”
