Roger Federer, the No 4 seed, plays Dmitry Tursunov of Russia, seeded 31, in the second match on the Philippe Chatrier show court.

They will follow the meeting between third seed Agnieszka Radwanska and unseeded Ajla Tomljanovic of Croatia. Radwanska is the highest remaining seed in the women's draw following the exits of champion Serena Williams and Li Na.

Last year's losing women's finalist, Maria Sharapova, follows Federer on court to play unseeded Paula Ormaechea of Argentina, while another unseeded woman gaining a lot of attention, 18-year-old American Taylor Townsend, plays claycourt specialist Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain in the second match on court one.
