Novak Djokovic returns a shot against Adrian Mannarino (not pictured) in the Western and Southern Tennis Open at Lindner Family Tennis Centre in Cincinnati August 15, 2018.

Wimbledon finalist Kevin Anderson beat Jeremy Chardy 7-6 (8/6), 6-2 while Canadian Milos Raonic advanced over Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-3, 7-5.

The 55th-ranked Haase clinched a surprise victory when Zverev fired a return long after losing serve six times.

'Though I think age is just a number, but still, most of us, you know, players that were winning most of the big tournaments in the last decade', said Djokovic.

The world No. 10, who missed the latter part of the 2017 season with an elbow injury that required surgery but captured his 13th Grand Slam title last month at Wimbledon, will next take on either fifth-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov or Germany's Mischa Zverev. "The first time he literally kicked my ass".

Djokovic is a five-time runner-up in Cincinnati, beaten by Roger Federer in three finals and Andy Murray on two occasions, and it remains the only Masters 1000 title he's yet to get his hands on. "And we have to be a little bit lucky, as well, against these top guys". Younger Alexander was dumped by Robin Haase 5-7, 6-4, 7-5.

The 10th-seeded Serb, who has reached the final five times, suffered stomach problems during the match and was attended to by a doctor during the second set.

Adrian opened the match in a stronger fashion, facing no break points and converting his fourth break point since the start of the match in game seven to make the crucial lead, closing the set with a hold at 30 in game 10.

In the women's section at Cincinnati, defending champion Garbine Muguruza was ousted by Lesia Tsurenko 2-6 6-4 6-4.

Australian No.1 Nick Kyrgios continues his challenge at the ATP Masters 1000 event later when he plays world No.21 Croatian Borna Coric in round two.

He will play either Hyeon Chung or Juan Martin del Potro in the round of 16, but the victor will not be decided until Thursday after play was suspended due to rain.
