Novak Djokovic v Jarkko Nieminen Live
For the second time this season, top seeded Serbian Novak Djokovic will meet the Finnish Jarkko Nieminen, in the second round of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships on Wednesday afternoon.
The two players met each other in the first round of Roland Garros earlier this year, where Djokovic won in straight sets and took the lead of 5-1 in their overall head to head tally.
The Serbian started his bid for defending the title on a decent note by edging past the German Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets with 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. Nieminen on the other hand prevented Lleyton Hewitt from having a fairy tale ending to his career by defeating him in five sets, last of which he won with 11-9.
With no singles title this season, the Finnish has a track record of 10-13, and has never successfully managed to move past the second round in any of the tournaments he has played in.
The world no. 1 on the other hand has won five titles already this year and is coming in the tournament, having emerged as the runner-up in Roland Garros.
This match will be a whitewash for Nieminem. Djokovic is in a terrific form and he should be able to get to the third round comfortably.
