Roger Federer eased through his French Open return with a straight-set win over Uzbekistan’s Denis Istomin.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion had not played at Roland Garros since 2019 after missing last year’s tournament with a knee injury.
The 39-year-old Swiss played smoothly and confidently as he won 6-2 6-4 6-3.
Meanwhile, Russian second seed Daniil Medvedev ended his misery at Roland Garros as he beat Alexander Bublik for his first win on the Paris clay.
Medvedev, 25, won 6-3 6-3 7-5 against Kazakhstan’s Bublik, ending a run of four successive defeats in round one.
The two-time Grand Slam finalist broke out into a relieved grin after serving out for victory in under two hours.
