Paris, May 29 (IANS/EFE) World No. 1 Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic advanced on to the third round of the French Open after beating Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller 6-1 6-4 6-4 .

Djokovic, seeking to win his maiden Roland Garros title, took just one hour and 45 minutes to wrap up the match on Thursday.

It is the only Grand Slam title to evade the superstar, despite winning the Australian Open five times, Wimbledon twice, and the US Open once throughout his career.

Nole will be playing against Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis, 19, who defeated compatriot Bernard Tomic 3-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 8-6 in a marathon match that lasted for three hours and 33 minutes.

Djokovic’s third round match will be his first against the Aussie.
