Rafael Nadal has no problems as he defeated Germany's Yannick Maden 6-1 6-2 6-4 to progress to the third round of the French Open.
Nadal, who is bidding for a 12th crown at Roland Garros, needed just over two hours to see off the challenge of the qualifier, who was playing in the second round of a Grand Slam for the first time.
The Spaniard was in control from the start, winning the first five games of the match before breaking Maden in the opening game of the second but the qualifier managed to break twice in the third.
Despite taking Nadal's serve, Maden was unable to hold his own as the defending champion eased through to set up a third round tie against either David Goffin or Miomir Kecmanovic.
Elsewhere, France's Corentin Moutet defeated 19th seed Guido Pella 6-3 6-1 2-6 7-5, while sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas came from a set down to beat Hugo Dellien 4-6 6-0 6-3 7-5.
After a difficult first round match, Garbine Muguruza had little trouble in beating Johanna Larsson 6-4 6-1 on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.
Muguruza broke in the fifth game for a 3-2 lead and after that Larsson struggled to get a point against her opponent's serve as the 2016 champion progressed into the next round.
"It was a better match than my first one,” Muguruza said. “I felt more calm. I really wanted to continue the adventure. I tried to build points a bit more instead of hitting very hard and trying to get a winner. I also used more topspin, and I tried to be more patient.
“Right now in the women's game, if you don't play well you go home very fast. You've got to be competitive and play your A-game all the time.”
Muguruza will now play ninth seed Elina Svitolina, who received a walkover when Kateryna Kozlova pulled out due to illness.
Last year's runner-up Sloane Stephens is also through thanks to her 6-1 7-6 win over Sara Sorribes Tormo and she will now face Polona Hercog.
