Follow live updates from the French Open as round one continues on the third day of play at Roland Garros. Daniil Medvedev has opened his campaign with a comfortable victory against Facundo Bagnis, who looked to be struggling with a calf injury. The US Open champion and Australian Open finalist has the chance to regain his spot at World No 1 if he advances further than Novak Djokovic in Paris, and now has his first victory since returning from hernia surgery.

Later on, last year’s French Open finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas should face a tougher first-round match against 20-year-old Italian Lorenzo Musetti, while Paula Badosa, Aryna Sabalenka and Simona Halep star on the women’s side of the draw. Home favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will also look to upset the No 8 seed Casper Ruud on what is set to be his final appearance at the French Open. Follow all the action and scores from Roland Garros, below:

The US Open champion is forced on the back foot by Bagnis but he shimmies up and down the baseline to keep the ball in play. Bagnis goes for the winner with an attempted drop shot and knocks it wide of the line.

For all the talk over Bagnis’ injury he still seems intent to compete to best ability his body will allow. Medvedev serves up a double fault to give Bagnis two break points.

The next point goes to the Russian and a bouncy second serve to the Argentine’s backhand sees his return loop out of play and Medvedev brings the scores level.
