Novak Djokovic coasts into third round at the Roland Garros

Novak Djokovic surged past Joao Sousa and into the third round of the French Open.

The defending champion looked in total control against a consistent player who has taken Andy Murray to four sets in their last two Grand Slam meetings.

But Djokovic had never dropped more than four games in a set to the Portuguese world No 59 and he continued that run with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 victory in which he broke his opponent’s serve twice in each set.


It was his victory here at Roland Garros last year that completed a lifetime ambition of completing the career grand slam.

Since reaching those heady heights his form has slumped but, with Andre Agassi in his corner, the 30-year-old is approaching the form that delivered a 12th major here in Paris last year.
