Monday, Day 2 of 2011 French Open action is in the books and there was only one First Round upset at Roland-Garros. Sixth seed, Tomas Berdych was beaten by Stephane Robert in five sets. Both Novak Djokovic (2) and Roger Federer (3) won their matches easily and on the women's side top seed Caroline Wozniacki also cruised through her match.
Djokovic defeated his Dutch opponent, Theimo De Bakker 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 and extended his winning streak to 40 matches.
"I was serving really, really well and being very aggressive, using every opportunity to step into the court," Djokovic said. "I was quite in control of the match."
Roger Federer beat Feliciano Lopez 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) but lost a bit of his Swiss cool. He was upset about the balls of all things.
"That for us is the most frustrating part...the tournaments all changed to the Roland Garros ball after last year. Roland Garros has changed their balls again. Now we're stuck with a different deal for all the different ATP Tour events," Federer said.
On the women's side Wozniacki (1) dropped Kimiko Date Krumm in easy fashion, 6-0, 6-2.
The highest-seeded American in the tournament, Mardy Fish (10) beat Ricardo Mello 6-2, 6-7 (11-13), 6-2, 6-4 to advance to the next round of action.
