BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Novak Djokovic cruised to his 25th consecutive win this season by beating Romanian qualifier Adrian Ungur 6-2, 6-3 Wednesday in his clay-court opener in the second round of the Serbia Open.

The No. 2-ranked Djokovic is off to the best start to a season since Ivan Lendl swept his first 25 matches in 1986. The Serb has won 61 of 67 sets and four tournament titles on three continents, including the Australian Open, to take the No. 2 ranking from Roger Federer — the last player to beat him.

Djokovic was broken twice Wednesday in front of his home crowd, but never really looked in trouble against Ungur.

"It's tough to play on clay after almost a year," Djokovic said. "It will take a bit to get used to it."
