Day Two of the 2011 French Open is still underway, but the big names have finished their matches and most have advanced. There are two matches currently in progress featuring unseeded players. In the meantime, top seeds Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Caroline Wozniacki all advanced into the second round with straight sets victories.
We have had some upsets on both sides of the draw, although the bigger upsets have been on the men's side.
