2012 French Open Results, Round 2: Top Seeds Victoria Azarenka, Novak Djokovic Advance

The second round of the 2012 French Open is underway at Roland Garros, and so far on Wednesday most of the top seeds are moving on.

On the men's side both No. 1 seeded Novak Djokovic and No. 3 seeded Roger Federer both won their matches. Djokovic breezed past Blaz Kavcic winning 6-0, 6-4, and 6-4 in straight sets, and Federer advanced by defeating Adrian Ungur 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 and 6-3.

No. 11 seeded Gilles Simon struggled against Brian Baker, but ultimately won in five sets. It looked as if Simon was going to win in straight sets as he won the first two 6-4 and 6-1, but Baker made a comeback to force a fifth set. Simon stepped up his game and defeated Baker in the final set 6-0.

On the women's side the highest seed in action on Wednesday was No. 1 Victoria Azarenka who defeated Dinah Pfizenmaier in straight sets 6-1 and 6-1. No. 3 seeded Agnieszka Radwanska was also victorious as she easily dispatched American Venus Williams 6-3 and 6-2.

No. 8 seeded Agnieszka Radwanska was not so fortunate as she was upset by Petra Martic losing 2-6, 6-3 and 3-6.
