World number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia has cruised into the third round of the French Open at Rolland Garros.

Djokovic barely broke a sweat as he dispatched Lithuania’s Ricardas Berankis 6-1, 6-2 and 6-2 in just over an hour.

It is the Serb’s 70th victory at the French Open, moving him into joint second place on the all-time list with Roger Federer.

Earlier, former champion Garbine Muguruza breezed into the French Open third round with a routine 6-3 6-2 victory over Czech Kristyna Pliskova .

It was a welcome stroll on court Suzanne Lenglen for 2016 winner Muguruza, who had fought for three hours in her opening match and needed just over an hour to see off Pliskova.

The Spanish 11th seed made only 13 unforced errors to set up a meeting with American Danielle Collins in the bottom part of the draw where Sofia Kenin is the highest seed, fourth, remaining. –Additional reporting Reuters.
