Australian Open 2012 Scores: Andy Roddick Advances, Will Face Lleyton Hewitt

The 2012 Australian Open is through two days of action without a major upset in Melbourne, but there have been exciting matches already taking place in the year's first tennis major. American Andy Roddick didn't make his first round match too exhilarating, however, as he advanced in straight sets.

Roddick, the 15th-ranked tennis player in the world, defeated Robin Haase from the Netherlands in three sets (6-3, 6-4, 6-1) to advance on Day 2. The American will face stiff competition in the second round as he matches up with Australia's own Lleyton Hewitt.

Other winners on the second day of action down under included Novak Djokovic and Kim Clijsters, as previously noted, along with Andy Murray picking up a win to make it a good day overall for players named Andy in Australia. The only major upset thus far happened when Australian Samantha Stosur was dismissed in a rather quick match.
