Andy Roddick is into the third round of the French Open for the second year in a row.
The sixth-seeded American beat 112th-ranked Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday in a match that started more than 4 1/2 hours later than scheduled because of rain and twice was interrupted by showers.
The first rain delay came at 5-all in the second set, and when action resumed nearly an hour later, Kavcic won eight consecutive points to tie the match at a set apiece.
But Roddick broke serve to open the third set, and closed the match by winning the final four games.
The 2003 U.S. Open champion reached the third round in his Roland Garros debut in 2001, then not again until 2009, when he lost in the fourth round.
