PARIS (Reuters) - Highlights of the second day at the French Open on Monday (times GMT):

1120 SINNER OUTPLAYS EUBANKS

Second seed Jannik Sinner beat American Christopher Eubanks 6-3 6-3 6-4 to reach the second round.

The Italian will next face French wildcard Richard Gasquet who beat Croatian Borna Coric in the first round.

1022 VONDROUSOVA COMFORTABLY BEATS MASAROVA

Czech fifth seed Marketa Vondrousova made light work of Spain's Rebeka Masarova, winning 6-1 6-3 to reach the second round.

Vondrousova, current Wimbledon champion and French Open finalist in 2019, raced into a 5-0 lead in the opening set, and although Masarova managed a break of serve in the second, it was too little too late.

Play underway at 0908 GMT

Play began under partly cloudy skies at Roland Garros, with the temperature hovering around 17 degrees Celsius (62°Fahrenheit)

Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner gets the first-round action under way against American Christopher Eubanks on Court Suzanne-Lenglen and fifth seed Czech Marketa Vondrousova faces Rebeka Masarova on Court Simonne-Mathieu.

Fourteen-times champion Rafa Nadal will take on world number four German Alexander Zverev and Iga Swiatek starts the defence of her title against local qualifier Leolia Jeanjean on Court Philippe-Chatrier.
