World No. 1 Novak Djokovic was made to work hard against Fabio Fognini at the 2016 Shanghai Rolex Masters on Tuesday but eventually prevailed 6-3, 6-3 over the Italian to book his place in the third round. 

The Serbian was some way off his brilliant best and Fognini had his opportunities to force the match to a decider, but he made too many needless errors that Djokovic took full advantage of.
