Novak Djokovic said he is “feeling great” and “ready to go deep” at the 2021 French Open after playing two high quality opening matches.

The world No. 1 has defeated both Tennys Sandgren and Pablo Cuevas comfortably in straight sets to reach the third round at Roland Garros.

The Serbian – who won the Belgrade Open last week – has dropped no more than four games in a set so far in Paris.

“I’m playing well, feeling great. I’m ready to go deep in this tournament. Hopefully that’s going to be the case,” Djokovic said in his post-match press conference.

“But I’ll take it match by match, and so far the two matches that I have played have been played in a high quality. I’m pleased with the performance today, particularly against a very good player [Cuevas], a specialist on clay, someone I have never faced before.

“[He] has got a lot of spin. [He hits] just a very difficult ball to handle in these kind of conditions when it’s a bit warmer. These balls during the day are bouncing really high.”

The 34-year-old will play Ricardas Berankis in the French Open third round.

Djokovic has won all three previous encounters with the Lithuanian in straight sets.
