Day 4 of the 2012 French Open did not possess the same fireworks of historical proportion that occurred on Day 3 when pre-tournament favorite Serena Williams was bounced from the tournament in the first round by Virginie Razzano in dramatic fashion. As I expected, sister Venus Williams was swept aside by World #3 Agnieska Radwanska in straight sets 6-2 6-3.

Roger Federer won his record 235th Grand Slam match to advance to the 3rd round, surpassing Jimmy Connors. World #1 Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin del Potro, Fernando Verdasco, Gilles Simon also advanced to the 3rd round.

On the distaff side, World #1 Victoria Azarenka, Samantha Stosur, 2009 French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova and 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic, Dominika Cibulkova and American teen phenom Sloane Stephens all reached the 3rd round. Local favorite Marion Bartoli did not.
