Daniil Medvedev allayed fears over his fitness as he enjoyed a comfortable passage into the second round of the French Open.

The Russian who missed time during the clay swing after undergoing a small procedure to treat a hernia problem, returned to Grand Slam action with a win.

Medvedev beat the clearly-unfit Facundo Bagnis of Argentina, whose calf was heavily strapped and his movement restricted, 6-2 6-2 6-2.

Medvedev, who lost his opening-round match at the Geneva Open last week to French veteran Richard Gasquet on his return, was a quarter-finalist at Roland Garros last year after four straight first-round defeats.

Fourth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas takes to the court against Italian youngster Lorenzo Musetti in the night session on Court Philippe Chatrier.
