DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 6-3 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Easy enough for Djokovic, whose movement is hampered but that doesn't detract from his vision.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 4-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: We're trickling towards the finish line in a match that has never really caught fire.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 3-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Djokovic backs up the break with a love service game. Ramos-Vinolas looks like a spent force now.

-

DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 2-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: This isn't easy for Djokovic, who's making plenty of errors on his forehand, but he gets the break.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 1-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: But Djokovic is still not moving well - albeit well enough to hold serve.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 0-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: The Spaniard holds to take the edge in this third set.

-

A bit more treatment for Djokovic now.

-

DJOKOVIC 6-2 6-3 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Almost an hour to take the set, but a very straightforward service game to get over the line.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 5-3 RAMOS-VINOLAS: But Ramos isn't letting go of this second set that easily.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 5-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: It took 12 minutes but Djokovic gets there eventually.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 4-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Ramos is looking pretty good on his serve now, defending well.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 4-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Djokovic sizzling his way through this second set despite whatever niggle that was before.

- 
-

DJOKOVIC 6-2 3-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: That break for treatment hasn't hampered Djokovic too much.

- 
-

Djokovic is stil receiving treatment - the trainer is manipulating the left side of his body.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 2-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: The trainer is out for Djokovic, who is lying face down on the court and having what looks like his lower hip manipulated.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 1-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: On the board for Ramos as well to level up.

- 

DJOKOVIC 6-2 1-0 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Straightforward start to the second.

- 
-

DJOKOVIC 6-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Some wild shot-making from Ramos helps Djokovic out - that's the set in 40 minutes for the former world number one.

- 

DJOKOVIC 5-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Quick change of shirt for Djokovic, and he's looking to get this set finished quickly.

-

DJOKOVIC 4-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Valiant defence from Ramos, hitting back to save break points, but Djokovic tips the balance.

- 
- 

DJOKOVIC 3-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Ramos really looks like he's making some inroads to the Djokovic serve, with a handful of break points again, but the Serbian fends them off.

- 

DJOKOVIC 2-2 RAMOS-VINOLAS: That's a beautiful hold to love from Ramos, who's looking more and more confident.

- 

DJOKOVIC 2-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: The Ramos return is causing Djokovic some problems - he even gets an early break point here, although he can't convert.

- 

DJOKOVIC 1-1 RAMOS-VINOLAS: The Spaniard, resplendent in yellow, saves one break point, and then another two as Djokovic returns into the net twice in a row. As the Serbian makes more mistakes, the Ramos serve looks a bit more secure.

- 
- 

DJOKOVIC 1-0 RAMOS-VINOLAS: Well, that's a pretty good way to start. A hold to 15 for the Serbian. Ramos-Vinolas looks a little edgy.
