Marion Bartoli pulled off two mini-comebacks to defeat Mariana Duque-Mariño on Chatrier court.
Maria Sharapova followed with another rain delayed second rounder, beating Eugenie Bouchard.
Sharapova was interviewed on court afterwards by Fabrice Santoro, a former ATP World Tour player.
And another Maria, Maria Kirilenko, completed her rain delayed victory against Ashleigh Barty.
Another second round match featured wily veterans Kirsten Flipkens and Francesca Schiavone.
Schiavone ended up rising up against the No.21-seeded Flipkens, prevailing in three, 61 46 63.
Schiavone has fond memories of Roland Garros - not just winning in 2010, but another final in 2011.
The doubles also packed the courts, with Aussie duo Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua in action.
Sorana Cirstea and Ayumi Morita - two of the game's rising stars - came good in their match.
And though her partner couldn't play in women's doubles, Lisa Raymond played in the mixed doubles.
WTA legend Martina Hingis was among those throwing their support from the stands on Friday.
And also among the winners was the World No.1, Serena Williams, who cruised into the fourth round.
