Juan Martin del Potro shrugged off a sluggish start to get his French Open campaign up-and-running at Roland Garros.

The Argentinian, who has struggled for fitness since fracturing his kneecap at the Shanghai Masters last year, took some time to get going against Nicolas Jarry.

However, despite dropping the first set, Del Potro powered back to win 3-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4.

Fabio Fognini also got the ball rolling on his quest to add the Coupe des Mousquetaires to his recent Monte Caro Open title.

The Italian was in dominant mood against compatriot Andreas Seppi, whom he beat 6-3, 6-0, 3-6, 6-3.

Bernard Tomic, meanwhile, wasn’t quite so motivated in his dismal 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 defeat to Taylor Fritz, and Sweden’s Mikeal Ymer overcame Blaz Rola 6-0, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5).
