Defending Roland Garros champions Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer cruised into the third round in Paris on Thursday with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Nicolas Barrientos and Robert Galloway.

The third seeds were forced to battle in the first round against Stefanos Tsitsipas and Petros Tsitsipas, whom they ultimately outlasted in a final-set tie-break. Their second-round clash was more straightforward — they did not face a break point.

Arevalo and Rojer will next play 13th seeds Jamie Murray and Michael Venus, who defeated Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 6-1, 7-5. Venus won the Roland Garros title in 2017 alongside Ryan Harrison.

Seventh seeds Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinski, this year’s Australian Open finalists, beat home hopes Richard Gasquet and Lucas Pouille 6-4, 6-2.

In a first-round match, 12th seeds Matwe Middelkoop and Andreas Mies eliminated Alexander Bublik and Marton Fucsovics 6-3, 6-1.
