So there you have it. Andy Murray was beaten in straight sets by Stan Wawrinka earlier, and Johanna Konta has now followed her compatriot out of the French Open at the first hurdle, with a straight-sets loss. Konta did not look wholly comfortable against Gauff, whether it was the wind or the cold or something else. But Gauff of course was aiming to make life uncomfortable, did so very effectively, and earned a second-round match with Martina Trevisan.
Overall, Roland Garros does look very different at this time of year - the wind and the low temperatures make it a profoundly different event, and whoever adjusts best will flourish over the next couple of weeks. Well done to Gauff and Wawrinka. Thank you for reading, and goodbye!
