Paris:

Novak Djokovic quickly completed his suspended match at the French Open on Friday, easily winning the final set to beat Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine 6-3, 6-4, 6-1 and advance to the third round.

The fourth-seeded Djokovic won the first two sets Thursday, but the match was stopped because of darkness. He broke Stakhovsky to open the third set and had little trouble the rest of the way.

Djokovic won his only Grand Slam title at the 2008 Australian Open, but the Serb has reached at least the semifinals at all four major tournaments.
