2012 French Open Second Round Draw

Roland Garros 2011The line up  for the second round of the 2012 French Open is now complete.

There were no huge  shocks in the 1st round, with all top 10 seeds safely negotiating their way through their opening match. The highest seed eliminated was Spain’s Feliciano Lopez, the 15th seed was forced to retire through injury after just 5 games of his first round match.

There were 4 further seeds eliminated in round 1 including 30th seed Jurgen Melzer, 26th seed Andy Roddick, 23rd seed Radek Stepanek and 16th seed Alexandr Dolgopolov.  Roddick, Lopez and Stepanek were all in Federer’s section of the draw which means the Swiss player will not meet a seed until least the quarter final stage.
