Britain's Heather Watson is through to the second round of the French Open after a comfortable 6-3, 6-4 win over Barbora Zahlavova Strycova.

The Brit was looking to continue her form of the Prague open where she was victorious, and she has now won 12 matches in the month of May.

She told the BBC: "I didn't feel I played as well as I have been today, but she's a very different sort of player." 

Watson is now back into the top 100 after dropping out due to a period of injury. The 22-year-old now looks to be recapturing the form that saw her ranked 36th.

She will play Simona Hilop from Romania in the next round as she looks to progress further.

A good performance in the French Open will see her in top form for Wimbledon, where on home soil she hopes to make a good impression on the home support.

Aged just 22, she has a lot of time to develop and possibly follow in the footsteps of Andy Murray and secure a Wimbledon title.
