Novak Djokovic survives a scare to see off Radek Stepanek in the second round at Wimbledon.

World number two Novak Djokovic has survived a scare against Radek Stepanek to advance through to the third round at Wimbledon.

The Serbian pro raced into a two-set lead with relative ease to seemingly put the game beyond his opponent.

Stepanek hit back in the third set, however, taking the tie-break 7-5 having seen Djokovic lose serve on two occasions.

Djokovic was unable to break his opponent in the fourth set, but he came out better this time in the tie-break to take the set and the match, setting up a contest with France's Gilles Simon in the next round.
