Novak Djokovic Eases Into 2nd Round

Novak Djokovic Eases Into 2nd Round

The fourth-seeded Muguruza is trying to avoid becoming the first reigning champion at Roland Garros to lose in the second round since 2014, when she upset Serena Williams at that stage.

Nine-time champion Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were among the winners at the French Open today as Petra Kvitov√°'s comeback from a career-threatening injury ended in second round defeat at Roland Garros.

"Generally I felt better than the first round, so that's exactly what I wanted", Djokovic said after Wednesday's match.

In a raw interview on Tennis Channel, Johnson said: "I just miss my dad". I am happy that he will be involved in the academy more than ever, that's good for kids, and that's all good for the academy.

The Serb's reward for his latest victory is a third-round meeting opposite Diego Schwartzman, who defeated Stefano Napolitano 6-3, 7-5, 6-2 in straight sets on Wednesday to advance.

"When I am here in Paris, I am very happy", he said.

On Monday, Nadal didn't break a sweat against Frenchman Benoit Paire in a comfortable first-round victory. "So a lot of things that I achieved are because he was there since I was three-years-old, helping", Nadal said. I was more or less under control during the whole match, so very happy winning in straight sets is always great news, and Robin is a unsafe opponent always. Basilashvili, from the country of Georgia, is ranked No. 63 in the world.

In another men's singles clash, Austria's Dominic Thiem also booked his place in the third round of the second major of the season after posting a 7-5, 6-1, 6-3 triumph over Simone Bolelli of Italy. That's all. But I am a tennis player at the end of the day, tennis players play tennis. "Obviously, they know what it is like, they know what you need to be a champion". I wish he was following along. "I know he is, from upstairs", said Johnson, wiping away tears as he choked up. Now that I've just won again, I feel emotional.

He is also looking to avoid losing his grip on the last remaining title in his possession following a dip in form, but the Serbian showed some encouraging signs in seeing off Sousa. I think my serve worked better than two days ago.

Nadal finished his match with a tally of 33 winners and only 13 unforced errors.

But before contemplating their respective accomplishments, each man had a second round match to attend to, with the shock early exits of seeded players including Alexander Zverev (9), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (12) and Jack Sock (14) offering timely reminders that neither Nadal or Djokovic can afford to count their chickens just yet.
