The 2016 titlist converted seven of 11 break points to beat the Colombian lucky loser in two hours and eight minutes. It is his 71st win in 85 matches at the French Open.
The 33-year-old Serbian star broke his rival’s serve three times in the first set and twice in the second and third, having saved all five break points he faced en route to winning his first H2H meeting against Galan.
