French Open 2012: Men's Favorites Breeze Through Round Two

While the biggest story of the early rounds of the 2012 French Open was Serena Williams' shocking loss, none of the big names on the men's draw had similar problems.

In a sport that has become increasingly top heavy over the last few years, none of the big names who played on Wednesday -- Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Juan Martin Del Potro -- were even brought to a fifth set.

Form held throughout the bracket as well, as none of the nine seeded men who played were upset either.

Djokovic blitzed unseeded Blaz Kavcic, winning 6-0, 6-4, 6-4 in straight sets.

Federer, meanwhile, took care of business against the unseeded Adrian Ungur, winning 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (6-8), 6-3. Del Potro advanced past Eduoard Roger-Vasselin 6-7 (7-5), 7-6 (6-3), 6-4, 6-4.
