The Latest on the French Open (all times local):


3:10 p.m.

John Isner used 40 aces to move into the French Open's second round with a 6-7 (4), 7-6 (12), 7-6 (7), 7-5 victory over 60th-ranked John Millman of Australia in a match played over two days.

The 15th-seeded Isner won both sets played Tuesday after the match was suspended by darkness right after the American managed to eke out the second set to pull even on Monday night.


2:40 p.m.

Andy Murray completed his ninth career comeback from two sets down, erasing that big deficit and beating 37-year-old Radek Stepanek 3-6, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 in the first round of the French Open.

They finished the match Tuesday after play was suspended because of darkness Monday night with Murray leading 4-2 in the fourth set.

The second-seeded Murray twice was two points from losing while serving and trailing 5-4 in the fifth. But he held there, then broke Stepanek and served it out.


2:30 p.m.

Rafael Nadal is back doing what he does best: Demolishing opponents on the red clay of Roland Garros.

The nine-time champion's 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 victory against Sam Groth of Australia added another notch to the Spanish player's stunning record in Paris, now at 71 wins, with just two losses.

Groth, an Australian ranked 100 who has yet to make the second round of the French in two visits, lacked the variety of shots and power to derail Nadal's pursuit of a 15th major title.

"So bad, so bad," he muttered to himself after netting a backhand as Nadal raced through the first set. In all, they were on court for 80 minutes.

Seeded fourth, Nadal lost last year in the quarterfinals to Novak Djokovic, ending a 39-match winning streak at Roland Garros.


12:55 p.m.

Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber has lost in the first round at the French Open.

The third-seeded Kerber was beaten 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 by 58th-ranked Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

It's the second time in three years that the Australian Open women's champion lost in the first round at Roland Garros — the same thing happened to Li Na in 2014.

Kerber received treatment on her left shoulder at the changeover as she trailed 3-0 in the deciding set. The left-handed Kerber then briefly left the court and returned to win her service game but could not break back and lost the match.

Kerber arrived in Paris on the back of early losses in both Madrid and Rome. Last week she pulled out of the Nuremberg tournament because of her shoulder injury.


12:20 p.m.

Tessah Andrianjafitrimo lasted just 51 minutes and 12 games in her first match in the main draw at the French Open.

The 17-year-old French player, a wild card, lost 6-0, 6-0 to Wang Qiang of China on Court 17.


11:15 a.m.

First on Court Philippe Chatrier is Angelique Kerber, the third-seeded Australian Open champion.

Kerber, yet to advance past the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, takes on 58th-ranked Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

Kerber lost her opening matches in Madrid and Rome and has been struggling with a shoulder injury that prevented her from playing at Nuremberg last week. But the German player said the pain has eased and she can serve normally.

Bertens arrives at Roland Garros in fine form, having won the title in Nuremberg coming through the qualifying stages.


10:45 a.m.

Novak Djokovic begins his bid to win a fourth straight major title against 95th-ranked Yen-hsun Lu of Taiwan on Tuesday at the French Open.

Also, nine-time champion Rafael Nadal opens against big-serving Sam Groth and Serena Williams faces 77th-ranked Magdalena Rybarikova as she starts the defense of her title.

Also on court will be second-seeded Andy Murray, resuming his first-round match against Radek Stepanek. The Czech took the first two sets 6-3, 6-3 before Murray found his rhythm and won the third 6-0. Murray was leading the fourth 4-2 when play was suspended Monday because of darkness.

The weather is expected to remain dry.
