2012 French Open Results: Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray Win On Saturday

The 2012 French Open is moving along nicely and we had yet another day of great tennis on Saturday. With big names such as Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova all scheduled to play you knew it was going to be a busy day at Rolland Garros.

Nadal won convincingly in his match by defeating Eduardo Schwank in three sets. He won 6-1, 6-3 and 6-4. Andy Murray, the world's No. 4 player, also won in three sets against Santiago Giraldo. Murray won 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, although the match was never really in question.

Juan Monaco and Milos Raonic played a thrilling five-set match, and it was Monaco who came out on top. Raonic won the first and third sets in tiebreaker (7-5, 7-5), but Monaco rallied late to claim the big victory.

Sharapova won in two sets over Shuai Peng. No. 4 Petra Kvitova needed three sets to win over Nina Bratchikova, 6-2, 4-6 and 6-1.
