Djokovic makes winning French Open start on Agassi's watch

Storm brewing at Roland Garros as Muguruza courts danger

Djokovic defeated Spain's Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-4, 6-2, while Nadal's search for an unprecedented 10th title at Roland Garros began with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 victory over Benoit Paire.

Victory for the 12-time major victor was the ideal way to mark his 50th successive Grand Slam appearance but the world No 2 will need to improve if he is to defend his Roland Garros title. "He has to leave, because he has already scheduled some things that he can not reschedule", Djokovic said.

"Even, before when I was No. 1 and playing very successfully, winning trophies and in the latest period where I was not as successful and where I received a lot of criticism from many sides, Andre was one of the few people that was actually standing on my side and supporting me", said the 30-year-old Djokovic on Friday.

PARIS If Novak Djokovic was hoping to take a little pressure and attention off himself after some rough results, he might very well have found the flawless way to do that by adding Andre Agassi as a coaching consultant of sorts for the French Open. "I'm going to try to use the time spent with him as best I can".

Djokovic's first match with Andre Agassi as coach could hardly have gone better, although he confirmed later it would be a short first stint.

The match between defending French Open champion Garbine Muguruza and 2010 champion Francesca Schiavone did not disappoint.

"I'm very happy to be back here after what happened previous year".

PARIS Returning to the stage of her greatest triumph inspired defending champion Garbine Muguruza to down 2010 victor Francesca Schiavone 6-2 6-4 in the first round of the French Open on Monday. He lost in the third round at Wimbledon, his earliest defeat in a Grand Slam in seven years, was beaten in the first round at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, reached the final of the U.S. Open, and lost early again at the Australian Open.

He will take on Netherlands' Robin Haase in his next match but after being broken twice by Paire on Monday, he insists there is one key area he needs to improve on.

In-form Ukrainian Elina Svitolina moved swiftly into the second round of the French Open, easing through a potentially tricky encounter against Yaroslava Shvedova with a 6-4, 6-3 victory. "It's great to feel the support", said the 14-time major victor.

She at least arrived in Paris with some confidence in the bank after making the semi-finals in Rome last week before pulling out with a neck injury.

On Tuesday, she won 13 of the 15 first points on Court Philippe Chatrier but was unable to keep the same level throughout, ending with a total of 38 unforced errors. "She kind of enjoys out there", added the Spanish star, who will meet Anett Kontaveit of Estonia.

Fifth seed Milos Raonic also made light work of his Belgium opponent Steve Darcis, cruising to a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory. "This is a sport and we should be very happy about what we do".
