French Open 2012 Scores: Novak Djokovic Survives Scare, Roger Federer Advances

The top ranked men's player in the world, Novak Djokovic, survived a scare from Italy's Andreas Seppi, rallying from down two sets to none to advance past the fourth round, 4-6, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. Despite committing 17 unforced errors in each of the first two sets, Djokovic was able to rally from an 0-2 deficit in a Grand Slam match for just the third time in his career.

Roger Federer also had a slow start, but also was able to get it together in enough time to advance, taking his match against unseeded David Goffin to advance to the quarterfinals, 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. He will face a tough opponent in his next match as he awaits the winner of the Tomas Berdych-Juan Martin Del Potro match.
