Novak Djokovic suffered in sweltering US Open conditions Tuesday but battled through to the second round with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-0 victory over Marton Fucsovics.

Djokovic received a brutal welcome back to Flushing Meadows as soaring temperatures and high humidity prompted organizers to offer the men a 10-minute mid-match heat break for the first time ever.

"We both struggled. We were not the only ones today. Brutal conditions," said Djokovic, who called for trainers who enveloped him in ice packed towels late in the second set.

In an effort to accelerate pace of play, the U.S. Open introduced a shot clock — the first of its kind at a Grand Slam tennis event — and two former champions are on opposite sides of the net on the issue.

The 25-second timer between shots begins when the official announces the score after each point. If a player does not serve before the clock strikes zero, he or she is issued a warning. A second violation results in the loss of a first serve. Whereas officials previously counted down in their heads and rarely enforced a time limit, actual clocks appear on the courts in New York City for attendees to follow.
