Form prevails on day four at Roland Garros

6:22 am on 26 May 2011

It's been a routine fourth day at the French Tennis Open with none of the top seeds extended in either the mens or womens draws.

Novak Djokovic didn't even have to complete three sets to chalk up his 39th straight win this year, as his Romanian opponent Victor Hanescu called it a day after massaging his leg five games into the third set.

But the second seed faces a dangerous opponent in the third round, Argentina's 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro.

The womens world number one Caroline Wozniacki, who has yet to win a grand slam title, survived three set points in the second set to get through her second round match against her near namesake, Canada's Aleksandra Wozniak.
