Follow our Roland Garros 2014 coverage.

Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer breeze into next round. Agnieszka Radwanska needs 3 sets to overcome Yulia Putintseva.

Seeds upsets:

Elena Svitolina def Svetlana Kuznetsova (19), Garbine Muguruza def Kaia Kanepi (24), Marina Erakovic def Sorana Cirstea (21), Martin Klizan def John Isner (13)

Match of the day: Gilles Simon defeats Daniel Brands 6-7 6-4 3-6 6-3 16-14

Simon saves 7 match points and wins after 4 hours and 32 minutes of play.

Australian player of the day: Lleyton Hewitt

The recent Brisbane champion rallied from two sets down but lost in 5 sets and 4 hours and 18 minutes to 24th seed Andreas Seppi. The Australian Open is not over for Hewitt yet, as he’ll play doubles with Pat Rafter.

Video highlights:

Stat of the day: 6

6 players retired today: Bernard Tomic, Robin Haase, Julian Reister, John Isner, Radek Stepanek and Polona Hercog who retired after only one game! That makes 9 retirements in the first round with the retirements of Andrey Golubev, Tommy Haas and Alex Bogomolov and yesterday. I guess it must be some kind of record.

Pic of the day: Svetlana Kuznetsova
