What the players said
Diane Parry: "It's a dream for me. I always wanted to be able to play on this court. Furthermore, it was nearly full with the French public fully behind me and supporting.
"I am overjoyed today. It's clear that it's never easy to start a match on this court, especially against the defending champ. I told myself to be aggressive, to play my game and I'm happy for that.
"You have to try to stay focused until the end, to play point by point."
Barbora Krejcikova: "I expected it's going to be difficult, and it was. I think overall the tennis-wise it wasn't that bad. I think physically was a little worse.
"But I think I have to start somewhere, so it's a pity that it had to be here and I didn't have any other matches, but I think it's good way to move forward.
"I just think I just collapsed physically, and, I mean, it was tough because I didn't play the matches. Usually the matches are different than the practices, and I tried to prepare the best way I could.
"But, yeah, I collapsed."
