In contrasting fashion, Djokovic, Muguruza advance in Paris

Enough With The Boob-Throwing Celebration, Djokovic

Robin Haase lost the match, but not his sense of humor in a second-round defeat to Rafael Nadal at the French Open.

Djokovic and Nadal posted identical scorelines, with the defending champion seeing off Joao Sousa 6-1 6-4 6-3 before Nadal defeated Robin Haase.

Nine-time victor Rafael Nadal and defending champion Novak Djokovic both won in straight sets to reach the third round at the French Open. Last year, he withdrew from the tournament ahead of his third-round match because of a wrist injury.

Djokovic goes on to face Argentine Diego Schwartzman and Nadal takes on Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia.

"I think she was playing so, so good for the first two sets", Muguruza said.

After dropping the opening set against Kontaveit, Muguruza was down a break in the second before coming back. And the fact that you play five sets, best of five, is more comfortable, because it gives you more time to deliver.

Djokovic felt he improved from his win over Marcel Granollers, although he allowed Sousa into the match in the second set and might have trailed 4-2 in the third.

Toni Nadal first started coaching his nephew when he was four years old. And today I lost at the French Open.

Tunisian Ons Jabeur became the first Arab woman to reach the third round at a grand slam with an upset win over sixth seed Dominika Cibulkova 6-4 6-3.


On Court 6, there was pathos and tears of joy for Steve Johnson, bathos and some world-class racket-smashing for Borna Coric.

This will be their first time meeting on the tennis court. "Agassi solved hard situations on the court when he was a player", said Moya. Having raced through the first set in a little over half an hour, second seed Djokovic established his rhythm and then just pulled away. After pulling back from 40-0 to huge cheers from the crowd on Court Philippe Chatrier, Tsonga missed a chance to level at 5-5 before Olivo took his fourth match point to win 7-5 6-4 6-7 (6/8) 6-4.

Little wonder that, after beginning the year at No9, he is back among fellow Grand Slam champions at the top of the ranks and leads the Race to London.

Johnson, who is seeded No. 25, has never been past the third round at Roland Garros. "Well, it was an awkward twist, but it was nothing, nothing really major", he said.

"I'm sorry for my French, my teacher is on holiday", he said. "And I am happy that I am through in three sets".

Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon champion, was playing in her first competition this week after a five-month injury absence following a stabbing by a burglar previous year.

Serena Williams is at the French Open, after all - but as a spectator, not a competitor.

Already the signs were good on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
