Shanghai: Novak Djokovic almost  sprained his right foot but recovered in time to beat Spain's Marcel Granollers 6-2, 6-0 in the Shanghai Masters on Wednesday.






Even Roger Federer had fewer problems in his second-round match, rebounding from an early break to defeat Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-4, 6-3.

Djokovic hit a running backhand in the first game of the second set and then leaped in the air, wincing in pain.

He called for a medical timeout after the game to have his foot wrapped and appeared slightly cautious after returning to the court, not bothering to chase after a couple of shots.

The Serb subjugated the rest of the match, however, closing it out in 70 minutes to set up a third-round match with Italian Fabio Fognini, who advanced when Spaniard Tommy Robredo retired with a wrist injury while trailing 7-6 (3), 2-1.
