U.S. Open Tennis 2012 Results: Djokovic, Roddick Move On To Round Of 16

No. 2 Novak Djokovic, who has progressed through the 2012 U.S. Open Tennis Championship with little fanfare, easily dispatched No. 31 Julien Benneteau early Sunday afternoon. No. 4 David Ferrer, meanwhile, struggled against veteran Lleyton Hewitt before taking control late in the match and taking advantage of the Australian's 72 unforced errors in the match.

USA's Andy Roddick will delay his retirement for one more round after he beat Italy's Fabio Fognini, 7-5, 7-6(1), 4-6, 6-4. Roddick will face No. 7 Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina in the Round of 16, who defeated Leonardo Mayer on Sunday.

18-year-old Laura Robson of Great Britain saw her inspiring charge through the tournament come to an end on Sunday as she succumbed to 41 unforced errors against defending champion Samantha Stosur.

No. 3 Maria Sharapova needed three sets to get past No. 19 Nadia Petrova on Sunday evening during a rain-delayed match. Sharapova will take on No. 11 Marion Bartoli in the Women's Round of 16 after the French player upset No. 5 Petra Kvitova earlier in the day.
