Vondrousova won 80 per cent of her first-serve points, 65 per cent of her second, and was an efficient 10/11 at the net.
“I’m happy I won of course, it was a tough match, she’s a hometown girl, so it was tough to play against the crowd but I am so happy people are back, I’m enjoying it and I’m so happy about my first win back on Philippe-Chatrier,” said the 21-year-old lefty, who fell in the Paris opening round last year to eventual champion Iga Swiatek.
Another Frenchwoman could come her way as Vondrousova awaits the winner of the clash between Caroline Garcia and Polona Hercog.
