French Open: Day 2 Results

Three British players reached round 2 at the French Open on Monday. Andy Murray defeated Argentina’s Facundo Arguello 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 and Heather Watson routed France’s Mathilde Johansson 6-4, 7-5 in straight sets.

20-year-old Kyle Edmund registered his first win at Rolland Garros by beating French veteran Stephane Robert 2-6, 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 in a rallying five setter of clay court. This is also Edmund’s first Grand Slam win.

On the other hand, Venus Williams declined to speak to the media after her first-round exit from Rolland Garros and now faces a potential fine for skipping traditional press conference. Although issuing a statement, Venus said fellow American Sloane Stephens “just played better than me today.”

Venus revealed that she will now focus on the grass-court season. “I have a little while now between tournaments and so now I’ll just get ready for the grass at Wimbledon,” she said.

Only five of the 28 seeded players failed to reach the second round on Monday. Apart from Williams, two seeded women are No. 14 Agnieszka Radwanska and No. 22 Barbora Strycova. Two of the seeded men are No 11 Feliciano Lopez and No 30 Adrian Mannarino.
