Day two of the first round of the 2012 French Open is in the books. Unlike Sunday's action which saw Andy Roddick unceremoniously dispatched, the second day did not include any such upsets. Nevertheless, the top seed on both the men's and women's side struggled early before ultimately winning their matches.
Novak Djokovic needed a tiebreaker in his first set against Potito Starace. The top seed on the men's side stormed back to win the next two sets and close out the match with a win. Starace chipped in with 25 unforced errors, and Djokovic, who vowed to speak French for the remainder of the tournament, won by 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-1 to move onto the second round.
Women's top seed Victoria Azarenka needed a tiebreaker in her first set as well on Monday. She then came back to beat Italy's Alberta Brianti to advance to the second round.
