2012 French Open Results: Roger Federer And Novak Djokovic Advance To The Quarterfinals

The heavy hitters on the men's side of the French Open have found a bit of struggle progressing through the tournament, but sometimes adversity can make you stronger. Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic both proved that this weekend.

Federer faced off versus David Goffin on Sunday, and the unseeded Goffin took the first set 7-5. Federer rallied to win the next three sets 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 to take the match victory and an eighth consecutive berth to the quarterfinals of the French Open. Federer, the No. 3 seed, will now awaits the winner of a fourth-round duel between Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin Del Potro.

Djokovic was also a survivor. The No. 1 overall seed on the men's side went down two sets against Italian Andreas Seppi and it looked like Nole was down for the count. However, Djokovic rallied for a five-set victory, winning 4-6, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. Djokovic will face the winner of a match between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarterfinals.
