Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova raced into the second round of the French Open with a 6-1 6-2 victory over talented Australian teenager Ashleigh Barty.
Neatly, it was a meeting between the senior and junior champions from SW19 last year, but the 16-year-old will have to chalk it off as valuable experience on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
Kvitova had been troubled by an abdominal injury in Rome two weeks ago but showed no signs of that today as she cruised through to a second-round meeting with either Pauline Parmentier or Urszula Radwanska.
The fourth seed is considered much more of a threat on faster surfaces, with her best performances at Roland Garros so far being two fourth-round appearances.
Also through to the second round is Italy's Francesca Schiavone, who has made the final for the last two years, beating Sam Stosur in 2010 and then losing to Li Na 12 months ago.
The 14th seed is considered one of the veterans of the tour at 31, but she was giving away 10 years to the remarkable Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan.
However, the 41-year-old's stay in Paris did not last long as she was dumped out 6-3 6-1.
Germany's Julia Goerges, seeded 25th, joined Schiavone in the second round with a 7-6 (7/1) 6-4 victory over Lucie Hradecka and next plays Britain's Heather Watson.
