"Sharapova detractors Mladenovic, Bouchard, Lucic-Baroni all beat Maria on clay, all showed up to #RG17 hurt. Her voodoo doll arrived late?" - @BenRothenberg spots a trend after a number of players who spoke out against the absent Maria Sharapova picked up injuries.

"From a sponsorship perspective, the FFT must be salivating at the prospect of a Djokovic/Agassi winner's speech. Lacoste + Longines," - @EdMcGrogan after Novak Djokovic's partnership with new coach Andre Agassi gets off to a winning start. The defending champion beat Spain's Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

"1st 2 seeds in the men's draw to lose are Gilles Simon and Jack Sock, projected 3R and 4R foes for... Rafael Nadal - @Nick McCarvel after 14th seed Sock was beaten by Czech Jiri Vesely and local hope Simon, seeded at number 31, lost 1-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 to Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili.

"What are some great restaurants in Paris?? Nothing too fancy, but great food," - Women's 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki worked up an appetite while beating Australian teenager Jaimee Fourlis 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 in the first round.
