Novak Djokovic set an Open Era Roland Garros milestone with his dominant third round victory against Ricardas Berankis.

The win saw the world No. 1 reach the fourth round of the French Open for a record 12th consecutive time – a run starting at the 2010 edition.

The Serbian dismantled world No. 93 Berankis 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 in just an hour and 32 minutes.

“I am pretty happy about the match today. Even if it looks simple, it is not the case,” Djokovic said in his on-court interview.

“The bounce was lower, so I had to adapt. The conditions today were very different from my previous match. Every match, adapting is the job.”

Djokovic did not face a break point as he won a superb 88% of points behind his first serve – while he broke the Lithuanian’s serve six times.

He also won 52% of his second serve points, and hit an impressive 30 winners to just 18 unforced errors.

The 34-year-old will face 19-year-old Italian star Lorenzo Musetti in the fourth round in Paris.
