Agassi stars as Djokovic romps to second-round win

Chasing his tenth French Open title, "King of Clay" Rafael Nadal stormed into the third round with a comfortable 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 victory over Netherlands' Robin Haase on Wednesday.

The 11th-seeded Dane will next face American teenager CiCi Bellis. He dropped a set against the string bean Russian Andrey Kuznetsov on Tuesday, although he recovered in blinding style to win 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, 6-0.

Nadal does indeed turn 31 at the weekend, by which time he is likely to have reached 75 match-wins at the French Open for just two losses.

But before contemplating their respective accomplishments, each man had a second round match to attend to, with the shock early exits of seeded players including Alexander Zverev (9), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (12) and Jack Sock (14) offering timely reminders that neither Nadal or Djokovic can afford to count their chickens just yet.

Steve Johnson advanced to the third round of the French Open by beating Borna Coric 6-2, 7-6 (8), 3-6, 7-6 (6).

It is only to regulate the animal market and the sale of cattle in these markets, and ensuring welfare of cattle dealt in market. Police said the victim, who was identified as R Sooraj, a PhD scholar in IIT-M, suffered an injury in his eyes.

The nine-time French Open champion strolled to success against the Dutchman and was two sets up by the time Haase made contact with the unfortunate man in the chair.

"In the second say he thought about it, and started doing things differently".

Those contenders have now had two quick wins each, the flawless start to any big tournament.

The 15th seed, returning this week for the first time since she was stabbed in the hand by an intruder in December, littered the court with 25 unforced errors as she lost 7-6 (5) 7-6 (5).

The 25th-seeded American, who has never been past the third round at Roland Garros, will next face sixth-seeded and Dominic Thiem. I am happy that he will be involved in the [Rafael Nadal tennis] academy more than ever, that's good for kids, and that's all good for the academy. "You have to focus on every point to beat a player like Tsonga".

In the ladies part of the tournament, Angelique Kerber has been eliminated in the first round against Elena Makarova.

Dominica Cibulkova said goodbye to Roland Garros after losing against Ons Jabeur. I walk onto the court.

Without Serena Williams, ladies battle is far more mysterious, and all the contestants have pretty much same amount of chances to win. Williams found a seat in the shade at Court Philippe Chatrier during her older sister Venus' match against Nara.

The first Wednesday at Roland Garros is traditionally known as kids' day.

Tsonga lost against Renzo Olivio, pretty easily with 3-1, and the person from which the home crowd expected a much better result, especially after winning the tournament in Lyon, finished his adventure in Paris this year pretty. He next plays Nikoloz Basilashvili, ranked 63 and owner of just one win through the Monte-Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome sweep. She next takes on 2012 runner-up Sara Errani.

Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor the fallen
Douglas County has hundreds of war dead to honor this holiday weekend, according to a list compiled by the Lawrence Journal-World. In Texas, Confederate Heroes Day was established in 1931 and still falls on January 19 every year.
