  • Monaco, Raonic and Almagro into the third round

    6/1/12 3:42 AM | Cheryl Murray
    With no upsets in the bottom section of the draw, Juan Monaco, Nicolas Almagro and Milos Raonic advanced to the third round of the French Open.

    Nicolas Almagro (12) def. Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 6-3, 7-5

    Spanish clay courter Nicolas Almagro upended popular Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis in straight sets. Almagro earned a whopping 16 break point chances for the match, converting on five.

    Baghdatis, who was outplayed in sets one and two, kept the third set competitive until he was serving to force a tiebreaker. Almagro, who surrendered a break of his own, finally got the match-winning break in the Cypriot's last service game.

    Almagro will take on Leonardo Mayer in the third round.

    Milos Raonic (19) def. Jesse Levine 6-4, 7-5, 6-2

    Big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic dispatched American lefty Jesse Levine in three sets. Raonic dished out 16 aces and tallied 40 winners and 28 errors for the match.

    Levine, an occasional practice partner for Roger Federer, came up through qualifying to earn entry into the main draw. He had a nice win over Benjamin Becker in the opening round, but Raonic's power was too much for the world No. 131.

    The win sends Raonic to the third round where he will take on dangerous Argentine Juan Monaco.

    Juan Monaco (13) def. Lukas Rosol 7-6(4), 6-0, 7-6(5)

    Lukas Rosol gave Juan Monaco a good test in the first and third sets of this second round encounter by playing high-risk tennis. The Czech had almost double the number of winners as Monaco (41 to 22), but he also had many more errors, posting 45 to Monaco's 13.

    In the end, it was the Argentine's classic clay court game of patience that won him the match and his willingness to draw errors in both tiebreakers.
