MONTANES 6-4 6-4 6-2 - WINNER! Montanes needs just 97 minutes to book his place in the second round. A strong, unflustered performance, and it would have been a surprise if Hewitt could have beaten him either on the clay. He now has an all-Spanish second round game against Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo.

- 

MONTANES 6-4 6-4 5-2 - Montanes takes to his seat having come through a tricky game to win, but knows that when he gets back up again he will serve for a place in the second round.

-

MONTANES 6-4 6-4 3-0 - BREAK! What a strange day for Marc Giquel - he begun his morning out of the tournament - got in when Hewitt pulled out - and will be out momentarily. The wily Montanes has a double break already in the third set on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

-

MONTANES 6-4 6-4 - SET! Mountain for Montanes' opponent as the Spaniard grinds down the French understudy, and moves to within one set of the second round.

-

MONTANES 6-4 - SET! Montanes is a dangerous customer on clay - only just outside the seeds at number 37 and full of experience, and he's off to a good start against his surprise opponent after taking the first set.

- 

MONTANES 1-2 - Another men's match underway - this time on Suzanne Lenglen. It's been a surprising day for Marc Giquel, but he's begun well, holding his first two service games after coming in as a last-minute replacement for Lleyton Hewitt against Albert Montanes.

- 

We believe that the part of Lleyton Hewitt will be played by Marc Giquel in his first round match with Albert Montanes later today on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

-

Some breaking news this morning - Lleyton Hewitt has pulled out of the French Open. There's no official reason being given as yet, but we'll let you know when we know. Injury probably the cause, given that Hewitt had not played since having foot surgery in March.
