Some notable names lived to fight another day Sunday at the U.S. Open, with Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick moving on to the third round from the men's side.
Djokovic's match against Julien Benneteau was the prelude to Roddick's at Arthur Ashe Stadium and Djokovic won easily (6-3, 6-2, 6-2) without facing a break point. The 25-year-old defending champion is now set to face Stanislas Wawrinka with the Swede beating Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 Sunday.
Roddick, who announced Thursday that this would be his final tournament, extended his career a bit longer with a 7-5, 7-6(7-1), 4-6, 6-4 win over Fabio Fognini. Roddick's next opponent will be the No. 7 seed Juan Martin del Porto, who also was victorious Sunday against Leonardo Mayer 6-3, 7-5, 7-6(11-9).
Other men's single results include David Ferrer outlasting Lleyton Hewitt 7-6(11-9), 4-6, 6-3, 6-0, Richard Gasquet trumping Steve Johnson 7-6(7-4), 6-2, 6-3 and Janko Tipsarevic downing Grega Zemlja 6-4, 6-3, 7-5.
