PARIS -- Agnieszka Radwanska became the first player to reach the second round at the French Open, winning the final nine games to beat Zhang Shuai 6-3, 6-0 Sunday.

Radwanska and Shuai broke serve in the first seven games of the match. The third-seeded Pole finally held to make it 5-3, and then won every game.

Radwanska reached the Wimbledon final in 2012, but her best result at Roland Garros was a spot in the quarterfinals last year.
