Maria Sakkari on Sunday booked a place in the French Open second round, while her fellow top-10 seeded Garbiñe Muguruza and Ons Jabeur did not make the cut.

The Greek, the fourth seed, needed about 90 minutes to defeat France's Clara Burel 6-2, 6-3 to take the first step towards equaling her best Grand Slam run, which came a year ago in Paris when she reached the semifinal round.

For a place in the third round, she will play Karolina Muchova who defeated Carole Monnet in straight sets.
