French Open Results: Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova Advance

Rafael Nadal (1) didn't really need the third set comeback from being down 5-1 but it helped save him from playing an extra set. Nadal beat Pablo Andujar 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 to advance to the third round of the 2011 French Open. Nadal will face Antonio Veic of Croatia in the next round.

Maria Sharapova (7) lost her first set to 17-year-old French wild card Caroline Garcia but bounced back to win in decisive fashion 3-6, 6-4, 6-0. Yung-Jan Chan is Sharapova's next opponent.
