Defending champion Novak Djokovic beat Albert Ramos-Vinolas 7-5, 6-3 Monday night at the BNP Paribas Open to set a fourth-round clash against No. 18 seed John Isner.

“It wasn’t as good as the first round, that’s for sure, but a win is a win,” said Djokovic, who dropped serve twice and finished with 32 unforced errors to 18 winners.

“I did struggle a lot, had some unforced errors. From the back of the court I didn’t feel so great. But towards the end of the match was better, so hopefully it can be better in the next one too. I definitely need to work tomorrow on the balance and hopefully in the next one there will be fewer mistakes.”
