Paris - World number one Novak Djokovic got his bid for a first French Open title off to a flying start with a 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 win over Taiwan's Lu Yen-Hsun.

The top seed, bidding to become just the eighth man to secure a career Grand Slam, needed only 90 minutes to see off the world number 95.

Djokovic, a beaten finalist in Paris on three occasions, goes on to face Belgian qualifier Steve Darcis in round two.
