World No.1 Novak Djokovic and nine-time champion Rafael Nadal racked up personal Grand Slam milestones on Thursday as they moved into the French Open third round.

Top seed Djokovic cheap nike zoom vapor street flyknit , looking for a -Roland Garros title to complete a career Grand Slam, claimed his 50th win at the tournament by seeing off Belgian -qualifier Steve Darcis 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.

It was the Serb's third win in three -career meetings with Darcis, a player nicknamed "Shark" who dumped Nadal out of Wimbledon in 2013.

But it was a far from a smooth display from the 11-time major winner and three-time French Open runner-up who committed 42 unforced errors.

"He plays with a lot of speed, is good from the baseline and it was not easy for me to play the points the way I wanted," Djokovic said of 32-year-old Darcis.

"He has a lot of talent and it was tough. I am happy to have won in three sets."

Djokovic next takes on Britain's -Slovenian-born Aljaz Bedene who reached the third round of a major for the first time with a 7-6 (74) cheap nike air safari , 6-3, 4-6, 5-7, 6-2 win over Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta.

Nine-time champion Nadal became just the eighth man to rack up 200 Grand Slam match wins as he saw off Argentina's world number 99 - and fellow left-hander - Facundo Bagnis 6-3, 6-0, 6-3.

Nadal, 29 cheap nike air footscape , dropped the first two games against Bagnis but then won 18 of the next 22 to ease into a last-32 clash against Spanish compatriot Marcel Granollers.

"The most important thing is a victory in the second round more than the 200 victories," said Nadal, who now has a 72-2 win-loss record at Roland Garros and only dropped three games in his opening victory over Sam Groth of Australia.

Roger Federer, missing from the French Open this year, tops the all-time list of Grand Slam matches won on 302.

Djokovic is sixth on the list with 216 after his win on Thursday.

Also reaching the third round on Thursday were 2010 semifinalist Tomas Berdych, the seventh seeded Czech, who defeated Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-1 cheap nike little posite one , 2-6, 6-2, 6-4.

Latvia's Ernests Gulbis, who beat Federer on his way to the semifinals in 2014, made the last-32 with a 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 win over Portugal's 26th seed Joao Sousa.

But going out was Australian 20th seed Bernard Tomic cheap nike air max plus , beaten 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (74), 7-6 (86) by Croatian 19-year-old Borna Coric.

Serbian 14th seed Ana Ivanovic, the 2008 winner, defeated Japan's Kurumi Nara 7-5, 6-1.

Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens followed up her first-round win over Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber by beating Camila Giorgi of Italy 6-4 cheap nike shox oz d , 6-1.

Swiss eighth seed Timea Bacsinszky, a semifinalist last year, defeated Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-4, 6-4.

NAY PYI TAW, Myanmar, May 10 (Xinhua) -- The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has sufficient time to meet its 2015 community deadline, a top official said here on Saturday cheap nike shox r4 , defending the work that remains to be done by the 10 member states.

ASEAN Secretary-General Le Luong Minh told a press conference that the deadline was originally set by ASEAN leaders at 2020 and the bloc achieved significant goals even after the deadline had been fast tracked to 2015.

"Up to now we have implemented 80 percent of all the measures of the ASEAN Community. So if you look at the fact that we really started the process of implementing all these measures only in 2009 and after that in less than six years of implementation we have accomplished the majority of the blueprints."

"We have one year and a half or actually two years because what has been implemented since the beginning of 2014 has not been counted. So overall I think we are on track and I'm confident by December 2015 integration deadline will be met," Minh added.

The ASEAN Community comprises three pillars, namely the ASEAN Political-Security Community, the ASEAN Economic Community and the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community. Each pillar has its own blueprint, and, together with the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI) Strategic Framework and IAI Work Plan Phase II (2009-2015), they form the roadmap for an ASEAN Community (2009-2015).

Minh noted that nearly 80 percent had been achieved in the economic pillar and over 90 percent in the socio-cultural segment.

While the ASEAN Secretariat insists that most countries have achieved around 80 percent of their implementation goals for the community cheap nike shox nz , analysts point out some countries are not yet ready for the changes the ASEAN Community will bring, particularly for a planned economic liberalization that would reduce trade barriers.

The so-called CLMV countries -- Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam -- that joined the bloc in the 1990s risk being adversely affected because of their lack of preparedness and also by the comparative smallness of their economies when compared with other members such as Singapore and Indonesia.

During the summit, the leaders are expected to adopt the Nay Pyi Taw Declaration on the realization of the ASEAN Community by 2015, and terms of reference of the ASEAN Secretary-General as the ASEAN Humanitarian Assistance Coordinator.

The Nay Pyi Taw Declaration, among others Cheap Men's Nike Shox Gravity Luxe Green Strike , emphasizes the implementation of the remaining action lines under the ASEAN Community roadmap.

It will also deliberate the formulation of a successor document to the roadmap or the ASEAN Community Post-2015 vision, and reiterate ASEAN commitment in its collective efforts for a single market and production base.
