Paris: Top seed Novak Djokovic registered a comfortable win over Guido Pella to advance to the third round of the French Open on Thursday.

Djokovic won 6-2, 6-0, 6-2 in just 1 hour, 26 minutes to set up a clash with Grigor Dimitrov.

The match was interrupted by rain but it had no effect on the Serbian who is aiming to win the only Grand Slam title that has eluded him so far.

“It`s like deja vu from two days ago, you know, coming in and out and warming up five times, but it is the way it is. I`m just glad that I finished the match today,” Djokovic was quoted as saying in media reports after the match.

Dimitrov created flutters when he beat Djokovic earlier this month in the second round of the Madrid Open.
