World's No.1 Djokovic hits 30 Slam wins in row       

LONDON: (APP) World number one Novak Djokovic racked up his 30th successive Grand Slam victory on Wednesday as rain-lashed Wimbledon braced itself for the latest chapter in Marcus Willis' rags-to-riches blockbuster.

Defending champion Djokovic brushed aside Adrian Mannarino, who was celebrating his 28th birthday, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) to reach the third round.

The top seed, bidding for a third consecutive title at the All England Club and fourth in all, will face either American 28th seed Sam Querrey or Thomaz Bellucci for a place in the last 16.

Djokovic's match was played under the roof of Centre Court as heavy rain brought chaos to the schedule.

Only 15 minutes of play was possible on the outside courts up to the late afternoon causing 22 singles matches to be cancelled and men's doubles ties to be reduced to best-of-three setters.
