French Open 2012: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovik Advance With Monday Wins At Roland Garros

The second day of the 2012 French Open concluded on Monday afternoon. One day after Andy Roddick was dispatched from the tournament, Monday's action included no major upsets.

Roger Federer entered the record books with a win over Germany's Tobias Kamke. The win marked the 233rd of the Open era. That ties Jimmy Connors for the most ever. Federer, ranked third among men at this year's French Open, already has 16 Grand Slam tournament wins, a record, but has not won a major event in more than two years.

The top men's seed, Novak Djokovic, struggled early on Monday against Potito Starace. He eventually put him away in straight sets. Djokovic needed a tiebreaker in the first set to win 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-1 and move onto the second round.

On the women's side, top seeded Victoria Azarenka struggled early before knocking off Alberta Brianti in first round play. Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams are in action as the first round continues on Tuesday.
