  1. What happened yesterday?

    It was a busy day yesterday.

    Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber suffered a shock 6-4 6-2 defeat to world number 81 Anastasia Potapova.

    But Roger Federer made a winning return to the French Open with a dominant first-round victory over Lorenzo Sonego.

    The Swiss 20-time Grand Slam winner, playing at Roland Garros for the first time in four years, beat the Italian 6-2 6-4 6-4.

    And Ukrainian ninth seed Elina Svitolina overcame a tricky first-round draw by beating seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams in straight sets.

  2. British number one in good form

    Konta v Lottner

    Johanna Konta is up against world number 147 Antonia Lottner from Germany, who was a qualifier for the main draw in Paris.

    The 22-year-old has never won a Grand Slam match so Konta, seeded 26, is the resounding favourite.

    Konta has had a very encouraging build-up on the clay surface too.

    The British number one, who has gone out in the first round for four consecutive years, reached the final in Rome less than two weeks ago before losing to fourth seed Karolina Pliskova.

    She beat two top 10 players on route to that final - Kiki Bertens (6) and Sloane Stephens (7), as well as Venus Williams.

    Konta also reached the clay final in Monaco after guiding the British Fed Cup team to the World Group for the first time in 29 years.

  3. Kvitova withdraws with injury

    Some sad news this morning as two-time Wimbledon champion and sixth seed Petra Kvitova has been forced to withdraw from the French Open with an arm injury.

    "I've had pain in my left forearm for a few weeks and last night an MRI confirmed a grade-two tear," she said.

    "I'm truly sad not to be able to play here this year. It is a really tough decision to make."

  4. Coming up today...

    British female number one Johanna Konta is up first against German qualifier Antonia Lottner on Court 7.

    Konta, seeded 26, has failed to win a game at Roland Garros so far but comes into the tournament in good form.

    World number two Rafael Nadal also faces a German qualifier in Yannick Hanfmann on Philippe-Chatrier, before top seed Novak Djokovic is up against Poland's Hubert Hurkacz.

    Then it's over to Court 1 where British men's number one Kyle Edmund takes on Frenchman Jeremy Chardy.

    Kiki Bertens, Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Stan Wawrinka and Dominic Thiem are among those in action elsewhere.
