Novak Djokovic got his campaign for a fifth Wimbledon title off to a winning start on Monday with newly-hired coaching team recruit, and 2001 winner, Goran Ivanisevic helping steer the ship.

Djokovic defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-5, 6-3.

But he had to recover from early breaks in both of the first two sets against a player who beat him at Indian Wells this year, as well as a nasty fall on the Centre Court grass.

Nole looked out-of-sorts throughout the 98-minute contest. He committed 27 unforced errors, converted just one of his five break point opportunities and destroyed his racket at one point when frustration boiled over on a sunny day in the Southern California desert.

Federer wins in Dubai to begin latest bid for 100th title

Federer entered the first-round match with a 13-0 record against the German, and broke in the first game to run through the first set.

Philipp Kohlschreiber speaks to the media after his 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 defeat against Kevin Anderson
Q. Just talk me through your analysis of the game today and how you felt you played.
PHILIPP KOHLSCHREIBER: Well, I think it's tough to play against Kevin. He's a player with a high-risk level of his game and big server, obviously.

I think it was a good match. Maybe the first set I didn't start it well, but it's, yeah, new court, played a bit different, a bit faster than the outside courts. Maybe I struggled the first minutes on court, but then I think I played quite well.
