Novak Djokovic, a straight-sets winner Monday, on hoarding Wimbledon towels: "I, at least, kind of plan in advance half of the bag or entire new bag for space for the towels that I take from Wimbledon. I try to sneak in an extra towel here and there during the match, using the excuse that it's too warm and I'm sweating. Actually I just put an extra towel in the bag. I'm sure the All England Club Committee will forgive me for that extra towel per match."
