French Open TV Schedule 2012: Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova To Play Third Round Matches

The stars -- well, besides Serena Williams -- have been more or less untested thus far at Roland Garros. Will that continue on Day 7 at the French Open?

Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova -- both ranked second in the world -- have won in straight sets in both of their first two matches, with neither giving up more than two games in a set. Nadal might not be seriously tested Saturday -- he'll face Argentinian Eduardo Schwank -- but Sharapova might struggle with Shuai Peng, the No. 28 player in the world.
