The 17-time Grand Slam champion had not left Roland Garros so soon since 2004, when he was beaten in the third round by Gustavo Kuerten.
In other men’s matches, No. 2 Novak Djokovic beat No. 13 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 6-4, 6-1; No. 6 Tomas Berdych eliminated the last American man, No. 10 John Isner, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4; and No. 7 Andy Murray beat No. 28 Philipp Kohlschreiber 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 12-10.
In women’s action, No. 7 Maria Sharapova beat No. 19 Samantha Stosur 3-6, 6-4, 6-0; No. 18 Eugenie Bouchard beat No. 8 Angelique Kerber 6-1, 6-2; and unseeded Garbine Muguruza continued a run that included a victory over Serena Williams by beating Pauline Parmentier 6-4, 6-2.
DOVER, Del. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson dominated again at Dover International Speedway, extending his track victory record to nine.
He followed last week’s victory in the Coca-Cola 600 with another sensational run in a race red-flagged for 22 minutes because of a pothole in the concrete track.
Brad Keselowski was second, followed by Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer and Denny Hamlin.
DETROIT (AP) - Helio Castroneves easily won the second Detroit Grand Prix race of the weekend Sunday, finishing 1.6836 seconds ahead of Penske Racing teammate Will Power, the winner of Saturday’s race.
Castroneves’ lead was so large that when he made his final pit stop on Lap 49 he still was ahead when he got back on the track.
HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Fabian Johnson scored his first international goal, Clint Dempsey doubled the lead off a defensive lapse and the United States beat Turkey 2-1 Sunday in the second of three World Cup warm-up matches for the Americans before they head to Brazil.
Tim Howard played the first half in his 99th international appearance, and with his 54th win surpassed Kasey Keller to set the American record for wins by a goalkeeper.
