PARIS -- Novak Djokovic advanced to the third round at the French Open by beating Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 6-0, 6-4, 6-4 Wednesday.

The top-ranked Djokovic has won the last three Grand Slam singles titles, but has never won the French Open. Last year, he lost to Roger Federer in the semifinals, ending a 43-match winning streak.

Djokovic was broken once by Kavcic, but otherwise had little trouble on Court Suzanne Lenglen. He did, however, finish the match with 34 unforced errors, almost twice as many as Kavcic's 21.
