Ons Jabeur is making her main draw debut at Roland Garros.

Océane Dodin has a 0-3 record in Grand Slam second-round matches.

the World No.1 and No.2 at the same tournament.

Venus Williams is breaking an Open Era record this year with her 20th appearance at Roland Garros.

Venus and Caroline Wozniacki are the only two former world No.1s through to the second round.

Kurumi Nara has equaled her best result in Paris by reaching the second round, which she also achieved in 2014 (losing to Jelena Jankovic), 2015 (losing to eventual 
runner-up Lucie Safarova) and 2016 (losing to Ana Ivanovic).

This is Françoise Abanda's debut appearance in Paris.

Sara Errani has not missed a major since making her debut at the 2007 US Open.
