Alexander Zverev kept it simple at the French Open on Thursday as he outplayed Swede Mikael Ymer 6-1 6-3 7-6(3).

Zverev surrendered a two-set lead against Australian John Millman in his opening match before scraping through, but avoided any extra legwork this time.

"Today I was swinging at the ball quite nicely and hitting it very aggressively and it was a very good match for me," the fifth-seeded German whose quarter-final run here last year remains his best Grand Slam result, told reporters.

Roger Federer beat Oscar Otte 6-4 6-3 6-4 in the second-round of the 2019 Roland Garros tennis event.

After closing out his victory with a signature stroke of magic, a silky backhand drop volley played on the walk from mid-court, the Court Philippe Chatrier crowd rose as one.

After a warm handshake with 144th-ranked Otte, who played admirably in the biggest match of his career, Federer milked the applause as the fans broke out into a chant of "Roger, Roger".

Later, pandemonium broke out in the concourse outside the media center as the 20-times Grand Slam champion, who skipped the last three editions of the claycourt showpiece, headed for his post-match duties through hoards of fans.

Stefanos Tsitsipas said patience was the key after beating tricky Bolivian Hugo Dellien to become the first Greek man to reach the French Open third round since 1967 on Wednesday.

The sixth seed eventually won an intriguing claycourt duel 4-6 6-0 6-3 7-5 in front of an appreciative crowd on the stunning Court Simonne Mathieu, but it was a sweat.

Claycourt specialist Dellien, whose opening-round win was the first by a Bolivian player in a Grand Slam tournament since 1984, played a sensational 10th game to take the opening set despite needing treatment on his ankle.

Grigor Dimitrov outlasted Marin Cilic 6-7 (3), 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-3 in the longest match so far at this year's French Open, which lasted nearly 4+ hours.

"Every win that I have now, I appreciate it," admitted Dimitrov. "I don't really think of who I'm playing against. I just want to have those wins... It was a very, very important match to me, without a doubt, though. Clearly I have struggled the past two, three months. The shoulder hasn't been great. So a lot of moving parts. A lot of changes overall. I feel great, and I'm very, so to speak, focused and excited for what's ahead."

Benoit Paire has been booed off more courts than he'd care to remember but in Paris' gathering gloom on Wednesday evening, he was welcomed back into the arms of Roland Garros after winning a four and a half hour epic to knock out compatriot Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

His 6-2, 6-2, 5-7, 6-7 (6/8), 11-9 on Court Suzanne Lenglen saw the mercurial 30-year-old reach the last 32 for the third time.

It also extended the thaw in his often icy relationship with notoriously fickle French crowds which started last weekend when he lifted the title in Lyon.

"Even though I'm playing against Pierre-Hugues, and even when they were supporting Pierre-Hugues, I felt it was perfectly normal.
