Paris: Novak Djokovic's perfect season is still intact and his clay-court form still looks devastating after he reached the third round of the French Open when Victor Hanescu retired Wednesday because of injury.
The second-seeded Serb, who joined 2009 champion Roger Federer in the third round at Roland Garros, improved to 39-0 in 2011 after Hanescu retired while trailing 6-4, 6-1, 2-3. Djokovic has won 41 straight matches dating to last year's Davis Cup final.
"I keep on thinking only about the winning. I'm taking one match at a time," Djokovic said. "Really, I'm not thinking about when this streak — this amazing streak — will end. So I guess that's the right mental approach."
