"I never really found the right pace".

The Frenchman was on the ropes against world number 91 Renzo Olivo when play was finally stopped at 9.55pm on Tuesday night.

The American was furious after being given a point penalty for ball abuse on match point at 5-4 in the fourth set and called referee Wayne McEwen onto court to argue his point.

"But I really fought. I gave my best all the way to the end", Tsonga said. "Even today when I stepped onto the court, I tried to get back into the game".

"I feel good. I did not have as much time to prepare as I wanted".

"I'm sorry for my French, my teacher is on holiday", he said.

But before contemplating their respective accomplishments, each man had a second round match to attend to, with the shock early exits of seeded players including Alexander Zverev (9), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (12) and Jack Sock (14) offering timely reminders that neither Nadal or Djokovic can afford to count their chickens just yet.

The president, who is known for remarks often deemed offensive, reiterated that only he would be liable for any backlash. At least 44 people have died in the fighting, including 31 militants and 11 soldiers, officials say.

Nadal has been lights out with his serve in his first two matches and has actually won more points on his second serve than his first in the first two rounds. But cheered on by a passionate home crowd on Court Philippe Chatrier, he managed to save those three match points. Olivo converted the next one with a forehand cross-court victor to win 6-4.

Anyone arriving late to Suzanne-Lenglen Court risked missing out on the first set altogether, as Djokovic took no prisoners en route to what could have easily ended as a donut win for the Serb.

The 20-year-old Canadian qualifier's cause was not helped by 30 unforced errors during the match that lasted only 52 minutes. There are victories. There are disappointments. Hit very strong. I think I did a lot of things well this afternoon'. It's obvious that I can not miss the clay court tournaments. "We try to coexist as best as possible with the pressure", Moya, the 1998 French Open champion, was quoted as saying by AFP. It's the paradox of tennis.

"I think I played a good match, I think I played a solid match, hitting very well with the forehand". And he was playing home. 'I am fine. I don't know what's going on later, no? Basilashvili also won three tie breaks in the second round, so the 25-year-old should be rather confident in his current form.

Reigning champion Djokovic teamed up with 1999 champion Agassi in a dream-team player-coach combination just before the start of the tournament. "I sort of let him really into it, and you could see that he started believing after a while, and that's always a risky state".

The locals will also keep a close eye on 13th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic, a Frenchwoman who dealt with back pain and deficits before winning in the first round.
