Meanwhile in men’s singles competition, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic stepped over wild card entry Japan’s Tatsuma Ito 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 in an easy contest where the main opponent was the heavy winds following Monday’s rain in the area.
Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas proceeded to the third round without playing a single shot after his opponent Philipp Kohlschreiber withdrew on account of a knee injury that occurred during a practice match.
Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki, playing her final tournament before retiring, lived to fight again as she came from behind in both sets for a 7-5, 7-5 win over Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine.
