MIAMI – World number one Novak Djokovic and Russian Maria Sharapova shook off windy conditions to move into the fourth round of the Sony Open at Miami on Sunday.
Serb Djokovic posted a 6-2 6-4 victory over India’s Somdev Devvarman and Sharapova turned back fellow Russian Elena Vesnina 6-4 6-2.
Djkovic’s win set up a clash with German Tommy Haas, who beat Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3 6-2.
“It was very difficult to kind of get into a rhythm because you couldn’t really serve at 100 percent,” Djokovic, the two-time defending champion, told reporters.
The top-seeded Serb took 28 of his 31 first-serve points and faced just one break point in the 68-minute victory.
Spain’s world number five David Ferrer outlasted Italian Fabio Fognini 6-1 7-5 and Japan’s Kei Nishikori, Ferrer’s next opponent, beat Xavier Malisse of Belgium 6-2 7-5.
World number two Sharapova, who is on an eight-match winning streak, fell behind 3-1 in the first set but won 11 of the next 14 games to advance in straight sets.
The third seed next faces Czech Klara Zakopalova, who beat Russia’s Maria Kirilenko 6-2 7-6.
