Raonic cruises into 2nd round in Paris

Metro Canada (Vancouver) - - SPORTS -

Fifth-seeded Mi­los Raonic is safely through to the sec­ond round of the French Open af­ter sweep­ing past Steve Dar­cis of Bel­gium in straight sets.

The Cana­dian took just 92 min­utes to beat the 38thranked Dar­cis 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 — tak­ing the fi­nal game to love.

“I was able to break rel­a­tively early in all three sets, and just go about my busi­ness through­out the whole match. So I’m happy with that,” Raonoic said.

In women’s ac­tion, Mont- real’s Fran­coise Abanda opened with a 6-3, 6-4 win over France’s Tes­sah An­dri­an­jafit­rimo.
