World No. 1 Novak Djokovic kick-started his bid for a fourth Indian Wells title by beating Marcos Baghdatis 6-1, 6-3 in the second round of the WTA and ATP tournament.Djokovic needed just 59 minutes to oust the former Australian Open finalist Baghdatis who at one time was considered one of the most dangerous players on the ATP Tour.But defending champ Djokovic had his game in order Saturday, blasting six aces, winning 83 percent of his first serves and breaking Baghdatis four times.Djokovic won the first set in just 26 minutes, winning three straight games to close it out.Baghdatis won the first game of the second set but he couldn't handle Djokovic's precision serving and superior ground strokes.The 29-year-old Baghdatis, known for having played one of the greatest matches ever at the U.S. Open against Andre Agassi in 2006, was done in by his subpar serving, winning just four points on his second serve.
