2012 Sony Ericsson Open: Day 6 Results: Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick All Win

The top men were in action Saturday at the Sony Ericsson Open, and the seeding form largely held as top seed Novak Djokovic, No. 3 seed Roger Federer, and top-seeded American Mardy Fish all won their matches in straight sets.

Federer set up a third-round match with Andy Roddick on Monday after the Swiss champion defeated American Ryan Harrison 6-2, 7-6 (3). For his part, Roddick progressed by defeating Gilles Muller 6-3, 6-2, while Djokovic defeated Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 6-4. Fish swept aside Canada's Frank Dancevic 6-3, 7-6 (1).

The only seeded men's player to go out of the tournament Saturday was No. 15 seed Feliciano Lopez, who fell to fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos 6-4, 7-6 (5).

On the women's side, Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Li Na, and Serena Williams all progressed into the third round with straight set wins. No. 6 seed Samantha Stosur was taken to three sets by South Africa's Chanelle Scheepers, but held her nerve to win 2-6, 7-5, 6-2. Meanwhile, in a battle of Belgians, No. 23 seed Yanina Wickmayer defeated former major champion Kim Clijsters 6-4, 7-6 (5).
