Roland Garros 2016 French Open tournament day 1 result, recap, videos and highlights – Sunday May 22, 2016.

Consistent rainfall shortened the first day of the French Open at Roland Garros on Sunday, forcing many of the day’s scheduled matches to be moved to Monday.

Nonetheless, several big names managed to finish their matches on Sunday. Below, we’ll take a look back at the completed matches from Day 1 at Roland Garros.

“It was a big fight again. I’m happy that I won it,” Kvitova told ESPN.com. “I played a lot of three-set matches, but it’s not my plan when I’m stepping on the court. I think that from the experience which I have already, I still can believe that I still can win it. Even if she’s serving for the match.”

She was quite relieved to have escaped the scare, as she revealed on her Twitter account after the match:

No. 10 Petra Kvitova was the top draw for the women on Sunday, though she needed to battle a tough Danka Kovinic just to advance in three sets.

Kvitova’s vaunted power (she ripped 35 winners) was matched by her predictable inconsistency (29 unforced errors). Nonetheless, she managed to survive.
