Novak Djokovic was at his dynamic best on Court Suzanne Lenglen as he dispatched opponent Pablo Cuevas to move on at the French Open.

Though Cuevas made a nuisance of himself in the third set, the world No. 1 made light work of the Uruguayan overall, securing the match in straight sets 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in a little over two hours of play.

Though he by no means played poorly, it was a match of missed opportunities for Cuevas. Despite having more break point chances than Djokovic, Cuevas claimed just 1 of 9 (11%) while the Serb converted 5 of 8 (63%).

Djokovic has defended his serve impressively so far in the tournament, saving 14 of 15 break points (93%) across his two matches so far.

 

 

Meanwhile, he has taken 10 of 19 break point chances (53%) in the same matches.

Djokovic will next face Ricardas Berankis for the second year running at the French Open, having defeated the Lithuanian in straight sets for the loss of just 5 games in the second round last year.

Djokovic has a 3-0 win-loss record against Berankis, winning each match in straight sets.
