Djokovic eases past Kavcic
Novak Djokovic shrugged off a late rally from Blaz Kavcic to make it to the third round of the 2012 Men's French Open.
The Serbia superstar, 25, needed only 23 minutes to race through the first set without dropping a game against his stage-struck Slovenian opponent, ranked 99th in the world. Kavcic finally registered in game eight and then went toe-to-toe with the world number one from the baseline, but squandered a golden chance to take a 4-1 lead. He also saved a break point in game six of the third set before hitting a backhand long on the fourth match point in game 10 to crash 6-0 6-4 6-4. Top seed Djokovic, who is aiming to be the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four major trophies, will next play Nicolas Devilder or Michael Berrer. He said: "I'm happy with the game overall. I think everything was working really well. I'm feeling better and better every match." Elsewhere, the 2009 winner, Roger Federer, seeded three, beat Adrian Ungur 6-3 6-2 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 for a record 234th victory in Grand Slams.
