French Open tournament schedule, scores and coverage

Garbine Muguruza survived a tricky first hurdle to open her French Open title defence with a 6-2 6-4 victory over 2010 victor Francesca Schiavone, while big-hitting Australian teenager Jaimee Fourlis pushed Caroline Wozniacki to three sets before the Dane prevailed.

Watched by sister Serena - who will not play again this season because of her pregnancy - Venus Williams easily beat Kurumi Nara 6-3 6-1 to move into round three for the first time in five years.

"I learned from all the matches I played against her (Williams)", she says.

"I feel good hitting the ball, but it's going to be a matter of doing my normal things in preparation and then going out there and enjoying it". However, her recovery took quicker than anticipated and last Friday the 27-year-old confirmed that she would contest the French Open.

"It's something I think very special that just if you love the sport you can do it. That's how you have to be is greedy". I think after US Open I will ask to myself what I want to do.

There is no Serena standing in her way here, but plenty of younger guns are eager for a notable victory.

"It's never easy but from a confidence point of view, from a physical point of view, she's in pretty good shape", Cahill adds. She put in 68% of her first serves, converting 62% points off them.Schiavone, the 2010 champion, showed her usual fighting spirit and saved three match points before going down when she sent a forehand volley wide. "Hopefully one day I can lift that trophy", she adds.

"She knows exactly what it's like out there, and she's had a lot of success here".

Muguruza called you a legend and she said she couldn't ever imagine playing for so long on the tour with all her injuries and all of that stuff.
