Seventh seed Petrra Kvitova moved into the second round of the 2020 French Open as she beat France's Oceane Dodin 6-3 7-5 in the opening match of day two.

Kvitova, 30, a Roland Garros semi-finalist in 2012, broke Dodin's serve in the eighth game and did not drop a point on her own first serve in the opening set.

Dodin, 23, ranked 117th in the world, was cheered on by 1,000 fans at Court Philippe Chatrier with both players losing a service game early in the second set.

But the Czech Republic player got the decisive break in the 11th game before serving out for the match.
