Top-ranked Novak Djokovic extended his Grand Slam win streak to 24 matches by beating Nicolas Devilder of France 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 on Friday in the third round of the French Open.

Djokovic has won the last three Grand Slam titles, and he needs four more victories at Roland Garros to become the third player to hold all four major titles at the same time. Rod Laver was the last to do it, in 1969.

The 25-year-old Serb can also complete a career Grand Slam by winning the French Open. Last year, he lost to Roger Federer in the semifinals.
