Novak Djokovic pleased to be finding form at the right time at French Open

The Serb raced into the quarter-finals of the grand slam with a 6-1 6-4 6-1 win that was complete after only 90 minutes on court.

Tsonga was unable to compete with the world number two as Djokovic took the opening five games of the match, and went on to convert seven of nine break points.

Djokovic now has a day’s rest before he faces Milos Raonic in the last eight but he is happy with his progression through the opening rounds of the competition, and expects further improvements.

“The performance was great from the start until the end,” said the second seed.

“I came with the exact level of intensity that I was looking for before the start of the match.

“Two years ago was kind of a similar situation where I started very well, won the set 6-1 and I was 4-2 up and then he managed to come back.

“Then we had the tough match and that ended up in five sets, I didn’t want the similar scenario.”

His main rivals for the title, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer, all play their fourth-round matches on Monday.
