INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) Donald Young led a parade of upsets at the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday, with the American beating 31st-seeded Jeremy Chardy 6-4, 6-2.

Young equaled his best result at Indian Wells, reaching the third round for the third time. He faces a potentially tough next match, taking on either No. 3 seed Rafael Nadal or Igor Sijsling, who met in the evening.

Alexandr Dolgopolov beat No. 29 Santiago Giraldo 6-1, 7-6 (4). Qualifier Michael Berrer advanced when No. 22 Richard Gasquet retired trailing 3-1 in the third set.

On the women's side, Heather Watson upset seventh-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 6-4, and Elina Svitolina knocked out 10th-seeded Lucie Safarova 7-6 (5), 7-5.

Serena Williams played later in her second match since ending her 14-year boycott of the tournament, followed by Roger Federer.
