COURT PHILIPPE-CHATRIER (11 a.m. start – 5 a.m. EDT)
 Naomi OSAKA (JPN) vs. Patricia Maria TIG (ROU) – I don’t think Osaka makes it to week two, but she should win a round or two.
 Victoria AZARENKA (BLR) vs. Svetlana KUZNETSOVA (RUS) – Two major winners facing off in the 1st round should be a treat for fans.

Danka KOVINIC (MNE) vs. [WC] Clara BUREL (FRA)
 Madison KEYS (USA) vs. [WC] Océane DODIN (FRA) – This could be tricky.
