Belgrade - Novak Djokovic won the first point for Serbia against Kazakhstan in their Davis Cup first-round tie by defeating Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 on Friday.

Top-ranked Djokovic, who overcame eye infections to play then seemed bothered by a sore shoulder, faced only one break point, in the third set.

Serbia No 2 Viktor Troicki plays Mikhail Kukushkin in the second singles on the indoor hardcourt in Belgrade.
