French Open day 1

Federer, one of 39 players in their 30s in the men's draw, breezed through the first two sets and though Falla had a break point in the fifth game of the third, Federer snuffed out the danger to roll through to round two.
While the "selfie seeking" fan soured his day, Federer was happy enough with his form.
"Winning a match like this is a good thing," Federer, ever-present at majors this century, said.
"I hit a lot of balls today. Clearly hope that I will start to play better and better as the match, as the tournament goes on."
Federer, conveniently in the opposite side of the draw to nine-times champions Rafa Nadal, world number one Novak Djokovic and third seed Andy Murray, will have a few days off before a clash with Spain's Marcel Granollers.
His eighth-seeded compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka, one of several players to beat Nadal on clay this season, was a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 winner against Turkey's Marsel Ilhan.
Japan's Kei Nishikori, the biggest threat to Federer in the bottom half of the draw, beat French wildcard Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-3, 7-5, 6-1 before local favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga rounded off proceedings against Swedish qualifier Christian Lindell with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 win.
Germany's Philip Kohlschreiber, beaten by Murray in a marathon match here last year, dropped only three games against Japan's Go Soeda, while Spain's Roberto Bautista-Agut beat German Florian Mayer, also in straight sets.
Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny's tournament did not last long. He quit when trailing Bosnia's Damir Dzumhur 6-2, 6-1, - smashing his racket into his forehead several times as his frustration boiled over.
Former champion Ana Ivanovic of Serbia, seeded seventh, reached the second round by beating Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova 4-6, 6-2, 6-0.
