Williams, who dealt with life-threatening postpartum complications related to a pulmonary embolism, said the fitted suit was created to protect her against blood clots.

American Williams, who has been battling injury, showed rustiness in a poor first set filled with loose shots.

In career match wins, Williams trails only Martina Navratilova (1,442), Chris Evert (1,309), Steffi Graf (902) and Virginia Wade (839). With all eyes on her, Williams did not disappoint: She wore a custom performance outfit by Off-White's Virgil Abloh for Nike involving a black and white two-piece with a matching cape printed with French words for "Mother, Champion, Queen, Goddess".

It was then that those end-of-set improvements began to pay off for the American, who halved her unfoced error count from the opening set and struck nine winners of her own to level the match with the loss of just one game.

Earlier on Day 2 of the clay-court tournament, Caroline Wozniacki went from playing a flawless set to quickly fading away against an opponent who had never previously won a Grand Slam match.

Kerber won the match 6-3, 6-3.

After suffering consecutive semi-final exits in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid this season, questions were asked about Nadal's form heading into his favourite Grand Slam.

Defending champion Rafael Nadal leads the men's side, entering the tournament fresh off of his first title of 2019 that came after a win over world No. 1 Novak Djokovic at the Italian Open last Sunday.

Nadal starts his tilt at a record-extending 12th Roland Garros title against German qualifier Yannick Hanfmann in the second match on Chatrier. "I've been practicing extremely well, and I didn't play like that at all". "But, I mean, that's why he's as good as he is".

Nadal's feared forehand was not at its risky best, accounting for more unforced errors (11) than winners (nine).

"It's always wonderful to play here, the new Chatrier is very nice", the second seed said.

A 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 victory saw him ease into round two.

Other seeded players on the way home included No. 12 Daniil Medvedev, who was eliminated 4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 by Pierre-Hugues Herbert and No. 15 Nikoloz Basilashvili on the men's side, along with No. 18 Julia Goerges on the women's.
