2012 U.S. Open Scores: Novak Djokovic Advances In Straight Sets

No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic advanced easily in the U.S. Open third round Sunday, dominating No. 31-seeded Julien Benneteau in Arthur Ashe Stadium, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.

Djokovic advances to the fourth round to face the winner between No. 20 seed Andy Roddick and Fabio Fognini, an unseeded Italian. That match is also in Arthur Ashe Stadium, and it was scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Djokovic made quick work of the Frenchman as he has all other opponents so far in this U.S. Open. The second-seeded Serbian still hasn't dropped a set in the tournament. He slammed 13 aces past Benneteau on Sunday, adding to that 41 winners to Benneteau's 15.

No. 9 seed John Isner, the Tampa Bay resident and highest-seeded American in the field, will face No. 19 Philipp Kohlschreiber at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Men's third-round action is televised live Sunday between CBS and CBS Sports Network from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. ET, and from 7-11 p.m. on Tennis Channel.
