Virginie Razzano had 13 Top 10 wins to her name as she took the court against Dominika Cibulkova...
... but the World No.10 squeaked out of a tight opening set then cruised to victory, 7-5, 6-0.
Maria Sharapova beat Ksenia Pervak in her opener and has now won 48 of her last 52 matches on clay.
Monica Puig came to Paris having won the lead-up title in Strasbourg - but she came up against it.
Despite some heavy wrap on her leg from a freak accident, Sam Stosur cruised past Puig, 6-1, 6-1.
Sabine Lisicki got back on the winning track in straight sets against French wildcard Fiona Ferro.
Lisicki was watched intently by Martina Hingis, with whom she won the Miami doubles with this year.
Young American Lauren Davis put up a big fight but fell to Yaroslava Shvedova, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.
Unlike Puig, Eugenie Bouchard carried her momentum from a lead-up title into victory over Shahar Peer.
And for some, it was all smiles: Marina Erakovic signed an autograph for a young fan after her match.
