There were no surprises as the juggernaut that is Novak Djokovic cruised into the second round of the French Open against Dutchman Thiemo de Bakker at Roland Garros.

The 24-year-old Serbian capped matters within an one hour and 32 minutes in a 6-2 6-1 6-3 win, extending his unbeaten run to 40 matches.

Some may say that after a dire opening day, the tournament actually started when Djokovic walked into the Court Philippe Chatrier.

Djokovic wasted no time as he broke in the second game to set the tone for the match. A forehand cross-court won him the first set before Djokovic went on to demolish De Bakker in the second.

The world number 71 battled hard in the third, but it took little out of Djokovic who looks in such great form that it'll take something special to stop him.

World number three Roger Federer will face Spain's Feliciano Lopez later in the day in what could be a stern test for the Swiss.
