Iga Swiatek began her French Open title defence with a trademark 61-minute dismantling of qualifier Leolia Jeanjean.

The world number one is aiming to become the first woman since Justine Henin in 2007 to win three French Open titles in a row.

And the Pole got off to a strong start, cruising to a 6-1 6-2 win on the second day of play at Roland Garros.

It sets up an intriguing meeting with fellow four-time major champion Naomi Osaka, who is continuing her return from maternity leave.

“It feels like home here. Hopefully I’m going to be here as long as possible,” Swiatek told the Paris crowd.
