French Open Results: Novak Djokovic Survives, Victoria Azarenka Falls

On Sunday at the French Open, one top seed survived an upset bid and another top seed fell, leaving a massive hole in one side of the draw.

Novak Djokovic was the survivor. The men's No. 1 seed went down two sets against Italy's Andreas Seppi before rallying for a five-set victory, 4-6, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. Djokovic moves on to the quarterfinals, where he will face the winner of a match between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Stanislas Wawrinka.

On the women's side, No. 1 Victoria Azarenka fell to open up one half of the draw. Azarenka failed to get in gear against Dominika Cibulkova, as the Slovakian No. 15 seed earned a 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) win.

That leaves no top-five seeds in the top half of the women's draw, already rather wide open, and gives No. 6 Samantha Stosur a path to the semifinals that will require topping just American upstart Sloane Stephens and Cibulkova.
