Defending champion and world number one Novak Djokovic halted the run of Jarkko Nieminen in the second round at Wimbledon.

Nieminen actually broke Djokovic's serve in the very first game of the match, but Novak bounced back to take a straight-sets victory.

The top seed appeared distracted in a performance littered with loose serves and uncharacteristic errors.

Serb Djokovic was still far too good for 33-year-old world No 92 Nieminen who was playing in his final Wimbledon.

The defending champion broke in the sixth game of the third set and completed victory when Nieminen sent a forehand wide.

Djokovic will play Australian Bernard Tomic, the 27th seed, in the last 32.
