Serena Williams was pleased with her performance after she wrapped up a comfortable 6-1 6-2 victory over Caroline Garcia to move into the third round at Roland Garros.

The victory meant Williams' winning run was extended to 26 games, and means she has only lost four out of the 72 matches she has played since being defeated in the first round in Paris last year.

The 31-year-old has only dropped four games in her two matches so far in this year's French Open after defeating Anna Tatishvili 6-0 6-1 in the first round.

Williams told the BBC: "It's important for me to win easily and it's also important for me to play well.

"If I play well, it will bode well for me at Roland Garros."

The victory took the American just 62 minutes to wrap up and she did not face a break point for the second match running.

Williams will now play Romanian Sorana Cirstea in the next round after the 26th seed beat Johanna Larsson 6-1 6-4.

Elsewhere, Ana Ivanovic beat Mathilde Johansson in straight sets, while Victoria Azarenka done the same thing to Elena Vesnina.
