Beijing, China (SportsNetwork.com) -
Novak Djokovic improved to 21-0 lifetime in Beijing with a second-round victory Wednesday at the $2.5 million China Open.
The world No. 1 star handled Canadian Vasek Pospisil 6-3, 7-5 under the roof on Centre Court on a cold, rainy day at Beijing Olympic Green Tennis Center.
With his wife, Jelena Ristic, preparing to give birth to the couple's first child in about a month, Djokovic said he is focused on his goal of finishing atop the rankings for the third time in four years.
"It's definitely always the highest priority out there with winning Grand Slams," Djokovic said. "That gives me plenty of motivation. It would mean, of course, a lot to me. That's why I'm out here in Beijing and (next week in) Shanghai, competing and trying to get that year-end No. 1."
