LONDON — Top-seeded Novak Djokovic advanced to the third round at Wimbledon with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5) win Wednesday over Radek Stepanek in a match that featured only two service breaks.
Djokovic, who lost in last year’s Wimbledon final to Andy Murray, gave Stepanek a point at a crucial stage in the 11th game of the fourth set. He could have received a let from the chair umpire when a challenge by Stepanek on a ball called out was reversed.
But Djokovic gave his opponent the point to put the game to deuce, and Djokovic won the game two points later.
The match ended on a successful challenge by Djokovic in the tiebreaker. His forehand cross-passing shot was ruled out, but the video replay showed it hit the line.
