Paris:

Top-ranked Novak Djokovic eased into the third round of the French Open with a 6-2, 6-0, 6-2 win over Argentina's Guido Pella on Thursday.

Djokovic has won every Grand Slam title except the French Open and has made this year's tournament his priority. The Serb lost last year's rain-interrupted final at Roland Garros to Spaniard Rafael Nadal.

The match on center court was delayed and interrupted by afternoon rain.

It had little effect on Djokovic's concentration as he swept aside Pella in 1 hour, 26 minutes.

He had 30 winners, broke Pella's serve six times and did not face a single break point on his serve, clinching victory on his third match point when Pella double-faulted.
