Novak Djokovic needed just one hour and 23 minutes to win his second round match at the French Open on Thursday.

The world number one was ruthless against Ricardas Berankis, beating the world number 66, 6-1 6-2 6-2.

Djokovic has lost just 10 games in his first two matches at Roland Garros.

"I felt really good," he said after his near-perfect win over the Lithuanian.

"I hope I can carry on like this."

Speaking to Eurosport, Djokovic said: "Right from the blocks I want to bring in the intensity.

"I managed to do that in the past two matches. It's exactly how I want to roll into the match."

Djokovic's only defeat so far in 2020 came when he was defaulted from his US Open last-16 match against Pablo Carreno Busta after accidentally hitting a line judge with a ball.
