Djokovic cruises into Roland Garros last 32
World number one Novak Djokovic continued his bid for a 19th Grand Slam title with a straight-sets win over Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas to reach the French Open third round on Thursday.
The 34-year-old, who is looking to become the first man in more than 50 years to win all four Slams multiple times, won 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
"I stayed concentrated. I thought the third set was very difficult for me because he lifted the level of his game," said the top seed after his 350th Grand Slam match.
"It's a cliche to say 'day by day', but it's very important for me to stay in the moment."
Djokovic will face Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis for a place in the second week.
Cuevas tested Djokovic at times on Thursday with his creative shot-making, but the Serbian star saved eight of nine break points and hit 31 winners in a solid display.
Djokovic is seeded to meet 13-time winner Rafael Nadal, who he lost to in the final last October, in the last four.
