Third-seeded Paula Badosa needed just 54 minutes to beat wild-card entry Fiona Ferro 6-2, 6-0 at Roland Garros.

The 24-year-old Badosa lost only two points in the second set as she looks to build on her run to the quarterfinals at last year's French Open.

Jessica Pegula also reached the second round with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Qiang Wang of China.

The 11th-seeded American led the second set 5-1 before Wang fought back. Pegula finally clinched it on her 10th match point.

A quarterfinalist at the Australian Open, Pegula reached the final of the Madrid Open earlier this month, losing to Ons Jabeur in three sets.
