  1. Post update

    So that's straight-set victories for both Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in round one.

    Can the other big names in the men's draw, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka do the same? They're both in action on Tuesday and we'll be back then to find out.

    Britain's Johanna Konta will also get her campaign under way on Tuesday, as will Kyle Edmund.

    Until then, goodbye. You can follow all of the rest of today's scores here.

    Nic Fuller: Rafa looking fab, go Rafa!!!' So want him to get the magical 10 this year

    Loser92: Can't help wanting Nadal to win this for a 10th time so that he can pass Pete Sampras in the all-time Grand Slam wins table.

  3. That feeling when...

    French Open 2017

    ...you bump into your ex's new partner.

    Andre Agassi and Boris Becker

    We'd love to know what Boris Becker, Novak Djokovic's former coach, had to say to Andre Agassi - the man who replaced him.

    Nadal is the headline act and pretty much lived up to his billing, although an unexpected rash of errors almost cost him the second set, which could have made things tricky. The moment he was announced on court as "the champion of 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 etc" was pretty electrifying and he has every chance of making it 10 titles a week on Sunday.

    Paire, meanwhile, has to endure a TV interview on his way off court. "Le loser interview", as someone unkindly describes it.

  5. 'Rafa's ever-powerful'

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-1 Paire

    Leon Smith

    Great Britain Davis Cup captain on Radio 5 live sports extra

    He's looking very good. He's had a terrific clay court season so far and looks so strong - physically and mentally.

    Rafa's ever-powerful and looks really confident.

  6. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-1 Paire

    Sealed with a big smash. Rafael Nadal is into round two to play Robin Haase.

    Sets one and three were comfortable. The nine-time champion was tested a little by Beniot Paire in the second set but he seals the win in one hour 52 minutes.

  7. Game, set and match

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-1 Paire

    Water is wet.

    Rafael Nadal wins at Roland Garros.

    One down six to go in the quest for La Decima.

  8. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 5-1 Paire*

    Too good. Paire looks on top of a rally, and is in with a chance of opening up a break point opportunity, but again Nadal hits a backhand passing shot while on the slide.

    The game is in the bag with another big forehand, accompanied by the usual grunt. Nadal is a game away from the second round.

  9. Post update

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 4-1 Paire

    Beniot Paire's dry cleaner won't be happy. The Frenchman misses a sitter running towards the net and then takes a tumble, covering his white shorts in red dirt.

    Nadal checks if his opponent is OK and then carries on dismantling another of Paire's service games. The ultimate pro.

  10. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 3-1 Paire*

    If Paire is struggling, Nadal looks fresh as a daisy. He looks like he wants his done as soon as possible.

    Someone in the crowd shouts out mid-point as Nadal moves to 40-0, which adds more frustration added to the head of Benoit Paire.

    Nadal is not letting anything bother him. He seals the game.

  11. Post update

    Piers Newbery

    BBC Sport in Paris

    The Paire racquet is living on borrowed time as its owner repeatedly motions to crack it into a thousand pieces. Playing Nadal on clay can do this to a man. Bent double at the changeover, sipping on something fizzy and staring forlornly at his team, the Frenchman is not giving off the comeback vibe.

  12. Post update

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 2-1 Paire

    Facing defeat, Benoit Paire is not happy out there.

    He is having trouble with his stomach, perhaps a pulled muscle, but for now is carrying on. I'm not certain if this is an actual or injury or if Paire is just frustrated at how this match is going. Despite the potential injury, the Frenchman manages to hold onto his serve.

  13. Game, set and match

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 6-2 Granollers

    That's it. Novak Djokovic is through to the second round after a really entertaining match.

    He's certainly not in vintage form, but the world number two is through in straight sets.

    Novak Djokovic
  14. Match point

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 5-2 Granollers*

    Three break points rescued by Djokovic and he then plants a menacing backhand past his opponent.

    Match point to the defending champion.

  15. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 5-2 Granollers*

    Novak Djokovic is serving for the match but given the amount of breaks in this set, I wouldn't bet on him doing it now.

    Yep, I'm right...three break points to Granollers!

    Novak Djokovic
  16. Djokovic to serve for the match

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 5-2 Granollers

    Marcel Granollers is pulling all sorts of tricks out of the box. Smashes, sliding volleys. He's been thoroughly entertaining against the world number two.

    But he's struggling to hold his serve.

    On deuce, he sends a poor backhand wide and gifts Djokovic the break point.

    And then the Spaniard can only swipe the ball wide again. For the fourth successive time, Granollers' serve is broken.

  17. Nadal breaks in third set

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 1-0 Paire

    Paire gave that second set his all but in the end Rafa was just too good. I'm not sure how much the Frenchman has left. This one could run away from him. From 15-40 down the bearded Benoit battles back to deuce but in the end Nadal breaks serve again.

    Benoit Paire
  18. Granollers breaks back

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 4-2 Granollers*

    You beauty! Granollers comes rushing into the net, and just when you think he's going to hit it cross-court, he bends his wrist and hits it to the left of Novak Djokovic. Lovely job.

    The Spaniard has break point...and Djokovic can only smack into the net.

    This match isn't over yet.

  19. Jeered to the rafters

    Piers Newbery

    BBC Sport in Paris

    Packed to the rafters, people arguing over seats, clay marks being disputed, a Frenchman flashing winners and a nine-time champion holding firm - this is what the French Open is all about. Nadal is briefly held up as a woman is ritually jeered out of the stadium, having attempted to claim what I'm guessing are her seats for the last three changeovers. C'est la vie, Rafa rolls on...

  20. Game and second set

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 Paire

    Nadal seals the second set as a wild backhand from Paire goes long.

    That game included a lengthy debate between the Frenchman and British umpire James Keothavong. Paire believed a ball mark in the clay showed a Nadal shot went long. Keothavong disagreed though and both players nip off for a break at the end of the set.
