Djokovic, the runner-up at last year's edition of the Masters 1000 tournament, made a rousing start to his campaign by outclassing Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine in straight sets. Nishikori, who had reached the final of Monte Carlo Masters, also made a good start by sealing a straight-set win over Feliciano Lopez of Spain.
Djokovic could meet Nishikori, whom he defeated in the first round of Madrid Open last week, in the quarter-final of the ongoing tournament. Notably, the Serb is searching for a back-to-back win for the first time since Monte Carlo Masters.
The four-time champion, who will take on the winner of the first round match between two qualifiers — Nikoloz Basilashvili and Filippo Baldi, though is likely to face a stiff test against eighth seed John Isner as early as in the third round.
Nadal eyes return to winning ways in Rome
Meanwhile, top seed and seven-time champion, Rafael Nadal will start his campaign against the winner of the first-round tie between Fernando Verdasco and Damir Dzumhur.
Nadal will be eager to go the distance in the ongoing tournament and ascertain his dominance over the rest of the pack on the red dirt ahead of his title defense at the French Open.
The 16-time Grand Slam champion, who was stopped by Dominic Thiem in the quarter-final last year, heads into the tournament on the back of a last-eight defeat in Madrid.
The Spanish ace will be hoping to avenge his Madrid Open defeat to Thiem as the two are likely to meet in yet another quarter-final matchup, this time in Rome.
