Sunday's action at the French Open featured two giant names in action on the men's side, with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic each surviving. Victoria Azarenka, the top-seed in the women's draw, wasn't so fortunate.

On the men's side, No. 1 Djokovic outlasted No. 22 Andreas Seppi 4-6, 7-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. Federer toppled David Goffin 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4.

Matches pitting No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. No. 18 Stanislas Wawrinka and No. 7 Tomas Berdych vs. No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro were suspended due to bad lighting.
