Day 1 of qualifying at Roland Garros saw a mix of teenagers and veterans move into the second round, with #NextGen stars Frances Tiafoe, Yoshihito Nishioka and Jared Donaldson joining former Top 10 player Radek Stepanek among the winners on Monday.

No. 20 seed Stepanek, the oldest player in the draw at age 37, opened his campaign for a 13th appearance in the main draw at Roland Garros by defeating Germany's Cedric-Marcel Stebe, 6-4, 6-4. Next up for the Czech player is Matthew Barton.

“I was out for eight months last year, so I’m trying to claw my way back,” Stepanek told the Roland Garros website. “I’m in a good position playing good tennis on clay now, which was not always my favourite surface, but I’m pleased that I’m slowly back now after this injury. I’m feeling 25 again and enjoying every second of my tennis.”

Djokovic confronts greatest challenge as clock ticks

Twelve months after his latest bid to complete a career Grand Slam was thwarted, Novak Djokovic targets an elusive French Open title with time and history threatening to conspire against him.

The world No 1 was left in tears in 2015 when Stan Wawrinka unleashed a battery of single-handed backhand winners to all corners of Court Philippe Chatrier on his way to a shock Paris title.

Djokovic turns 29 on Sunday and will be playing Roland Garros for a 12th time where he remains the overwhelming favourite to secure a trophy which would also place him halfway to the first calendar Grand Slam since 1969.

France's Gaël Monfils has been forced to withdraw from the French Open starting on Sunday because of a viral infection.

The world number 14's agent said on Friday the 29-year-old had been "weakened and hospitalised in recent days".

He becomes the second Top 20 player to pull out of the clay-court tournament after third-ranked Swiss Roger Federer because of a back problem.

Australian Nick Kyrgios did his best to enliven a damp and dismal Parisian day with eye-catching play and habitual rants as the French Open began without some of its familiar settings on Sunday.

The volatile 17th seed mainly let his racket do the talking during an impressive 7-6(6) 7-6(6) 6-4 defeat of Italian debutant Marco Cecchinato, although he did receive a code violation for snapping at a ball boy in the first set.

Darkness halted Andy Murray's bad-tempered French Open survival battle with Radek Stepanek while Stan Wawrinka avoided becoming the first defending champion to lose in the first round on Monday.

Second seed Murray dropped the first two sets 6-3, 6-3 before taking the third 6-0.

He then edged ahead with a break in the fourth at 4-2 when play was halted in the gloom of Court Philippe Chatrier at 2123 (1923GMT).

At 37, Stepanek is bidding to be the oldest winner of a singles match in Paris since Jimmy Connors in 1991.

World No 1 Novak Djokovic, record nine-time champion Rafael Nadal and women's title-holder Serena Williams begin their French Open campaigns on Tuesday with the forecast far more promising after a rain-hit first two days at Roland Garros.

Three-time Roland Garros finalist Djokovic will embark on another quest to complete a career Grand Slam with Taiwan's Lu Yen-Hsun, the world No 95, his first-round opponent on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Nine-time champion Rafael Nadal rocked the French Open on Friday when he pulled out with a left wrist injury as Andy Murray and defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka moved closer to a semifinal showdown.

Nadal, 29, said he had been playing with an anesthetic injection in the wrist in the first two rounds and that MRI scans had shown that the injury to the tendon was getting worse.

"It's not broken, but if I continue to play it will be 100 percent broken in a few days," said an emotional Nadal, the fourth seeded winner of 14 majors.

"To win the tournament I need five more matches, and the doctor says that's 100 percent impossible."
