Djokovic flattens Somdev

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic cruised into the fourth round of the Miami ATP Masters and WTA tournament on Sunday with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over India’s Somdev Devvarman.

Djokovic remained on course for a third straight title on the hard courts of Key Biscayne  a fourth overall and will battle German veteran Tommy Haas for a place in the quarterfinals.

The 25-year-old Serbian, who won the title in 2007, 2011 and 2012, had little trouble against Devvarman, who has fallen to 254th in the world after a near-seven month absence last season with a shoulder injury.

Djokovic, who saw a 22-match winning streak halted in the semifinals at Indian Wells last week, hasn’t lost to a player outside the top 100 since 2010.

‘Considering the wind, it was a nice day,’ Djokovic said. ‘Conditions not so great. It was very difficult to kind of get into the rhythm.’
