After seeing Andy Roddick get upset by Nicolas Mahut early in day one, its clear that the 2012 French Open can give us some unexpected turns with every game, set and match.
2009 U.S. Open Champion Juan Martin Del Potro was able to deal with a lingering left knee issue to move forward with a 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-1 win over Albert Montanes. Del Potro had his knee wrapped before the game began and added further wrapping after the second set, but he carried on to defeat Montanes in four sets.
The No. 5 player in the world and the local favorite, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga battle through a slow beginning to take out Andrey Kuznetsov, 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. 2003 French Open champ, Juan Carlos Ferrero, won in straight sets (6-1, 6-4, 6-3) over Jonathan Dasnieres de Veigy.
