                                        D. Istomin won a first set in a tie break with scoring 10-8 points in tiebreak. In a second set Djoko came back from 2 set point down and wins a set with 7-5.


                                        In a Third set Djokovic won a set with ease by 6-2.

                                        
                                         Fourth set was won by D. Istomin ,7-6. Another tie break in a game , but D. istomin won a tie break by taking a points 7-5. Once again he broke Djoko's serve in  a tie break.


                                        And in a last set D. Istomin broke a Djoko's 3rd serve. Istomin earns the smallest of openings at the start of this game, a sumptuous backhand pass from left to right catching out Djokovic at the net for 0-15. Djokovic follows that up by spooning a forehand long for 0-30. Now then. This is interesting. Dial that up to very interesting – a stonking Istomin forehand return makes it 15-40 and here are the first break points in this set. Istomin pulls the trigger too early on the first, though, sending a wild forehand long, but he sounds like he’s just experienced the happiest moment of his life when he converts the second with an exquisite backhand down the line! Novak Djokovic is in a hole now.


                                      D. Istomin won Djoko's 3rd serve.

                                      D.Istomin never gave a chance to Djokovic to break his serve. And he named a game on his favour.

                 
                                     
Novak Djokovic congratulates D. Istomin after facing a second round Australian Open exit by D. Istomin.

            Djokovic never gave a single set to D. Istomin in his last six mittings but this time Luck was not in his favour and his opponent played a very good game.


                                     "It is the biggest win for me. It means so much," Istomin said. "Now I feel I can play with these guys, and to be with them on the same level."


 
                                      
                                       Djokovic had won five of the previous six Australian Open championships, and had reached the fourth round or better every year since 2007 — the year before he won his first Grand Slam title at Melbourne Park.

                                      "I'm not used to losing Australian Open second round — I've done so well here."

                                      The last time he'd failed to advance beyond the second round at a major was at Wimbledon in 2008, when he was seeded third and lost to then No. 75-ranked Marat Safin, a two-time Grand Slam champion.

                                         "First of all, I feel sorry for Novak. I was playing so good today," Istomin said. "I surprised myself, as well."


                                         The 30-year-old Istomin will play No. 30 Pablo Carreno Busta in third Round of Australian Open.
