The Serbian, who won the Madrid Open last week, was never really troubled throughout and wrapped up a 6-1, 6-3 win in relative comfort.
He’ll be joined in round three by Juan Martin del Potro , who looked closer to his usual self in defeating David Goffin 6-4, 6-2.
Elsewhere, Kei Nishikori overcame Taylor Fritz 6-2, 6-4, and Diego Schwartzman beat Albert Ramos 7-6 (7-5), 6-1.
Marin Cilic was dumped out of the competition though, losing 6-2, 6-3 to Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany.
