Toronto: Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray and top seed Novak Djokovic both avoided post-Games letdowns with quick opening wins at the Toronto masters on Wednesday.
Murray, fresh from his home success at Wimbledon, toughed out a painful 6-1, 6-3 defeat of Flavio Cipolla. Djokovic avoided most of the pressure in his 71-minute defeat of Bernard Tomic 6-2, 6-3 sealing three match points with a sixth ace and going through on the first match point.
"For the first match it was a decent performance. Obviously at the start we played very long opening four games, and I was struggling to find the rhythm as most of the players who came in late from London did," said Djokovic.
