Nadal, Djokovic sail through to third round

The king of clay and nine-time French Open victor has only dropped a single match in the clay court season, leaving him with a record of 18 and 1 after making the final of the Australian Open, but going down in five famous sets to Roger Federer earlier in the year.

Title-holder Djokovic strolled through his opener against Marcel Granollers of Spain, advancing 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

"King of Clay" Nadal did not face a single break point in a magnificent service exhibition and prowled around court like a man on a mission as he set up a meeting with Nikoloz Basilashvili in round three.

Back on Court Philippe Chatrier to resume his first-round match against Renzo Olivo, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga could not overturn the deficit at the French Open.

"Generally, I felt better than the first round, so that s exactly what I wanted".

The Austrian, who is the only player to defeat Nadal on clay this season, will meet American 25th seed Steve Johnson next as he looks to build on previous year s run to the semi-finals. "So a lot of things that I achieved are because he was there since I was three-years-old, helping", Nadal said.

"I figured he was going to take on a powerful name but I do not know what relationship they're going to have".

"I love being here and I love playing on this court", Williams said.

Rumor: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite complete Roster leaked
Previous year the folks at Capcom took the wraps off their latest mashup fighting game in the form of Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite . On the other hand, Ryce has mentioned that Venom could be one of the 6 characters that will arrive as a downloadable content.

In the women's section, Czech second seed Karolina Pliskova reached the French Open second round on Monday with a 7-5, 6-2 win over China's Zheng Saisai. But I am also happy at home. "Now I need to focus on the rest".

Toni Nadal first started coaching his nephew when he was four years old.

When asked what results would make him most happy this year, he said: "To be healthy, and to play very well here".

If Novak Djokovic was hoping to take a little pressure and attention off himself after some rough results, he might very well have found the ideal way to do that by adding Andre Agassi as a coaching consultant of sorts for the French Open.

American Steve Johnson, still grieving the recent death of his father, advanced to the third round by beating Borna Coric Croatia 6-2, 7-6 (8), 3-6, 7-6 (6) in a hard-fought emotional match. Last week I won my first-ever clay tournament.

"Physically I'm okay, emotionally I'm a mess". I think the most important is to remain as stable and consistent as possible in terms of emotions, because when you're working, if you work well, you're always rewarded at some point. I just know he was looking down on me on that last point.

"I finished everything at around 1 in the morning".
