Raonic cruises into 2nd round in Paris
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.
