The Latest: No. 7 seed Konta out in French Open's 1st round
PARIS (AP) The Latest on the French Open (all times local):
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's first round match at the French Open had been suspended because of darkness with the 12th-seeded Frenchman seemingly on the brink of an early exit.
Tsonga was losing 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 5-4 to Roland Garros debutant Renzo Olivo when the match was interrupted.
Cheered by a passionate home crowd, Tsonga valiantly fought his way back into the match after losing the opening two sets, but the Frenchman was broken in the fourth for a second time to leave Olivo serving for the match.
Tsonga, who has never lost to a player ranked as low as No. 91 Olivo at a Grand Slam, broke back on the last of his three break points.
John Isner hit 31 aces and, more surprisingly, converted all three of his break points in a 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3 victory over Jordan Thompson of Australia to reach the second round at the French Open.
In all, of the 11 men from the United States who entered the main draw at Roland Garros, only Isner and No. 25 Steve Johnson remain in the tournament. It's the first time since 2011 that as few as two Americans got to the second round in Paris.
The 21st-seeded Isner saved 6 of 8 break points that he faced Tuesday.
Isner, best known for winning the longest match in tennis history at Wimbledon in 2010, has one of the best serves on tour. His game's biggest weakness has been returning opponents' serves. But he did well in that department against the 92nd-ranked Thompson.
The other seeded American man in action Tuesday, No. 27 Sam Querrey, lost to Chung Hyeon of South Korea 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Simona Halep is safely through to the second round of the French Open after beating Jana Cepelova of Slovakia in straight sets.
A recent ankle injury didn't appear to be troubling the No. 3 seed as Halep raced to a 6-2, 6-3 victory in just 67 minutes.
The Romanian, who was runner up in 2014, will next face Maria Tatjana of Germany.
The French tennis federation says Maxime Hamou's accreditation has been revoked after he repeatedly tried to kiss a female reporter during an interview.
The 21-year-old Hamou, a French qualifier who lost to Pablo Cuevas in the first round on Monday, also held the Eurosport TV journalist around her neck as she tried to move away during a live interview at Roland Garros.
The French federation issued a statement criticizing Hamou's ''reprehensible behavior with a journalist yesterday'' and said its disputes commission will investigate the case ''for improper conduct.''
Top-seeded Andy Murray is safely through to the second round of the French Open after beating Andrey Kuznetsov of Russia 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, 6-0.
Murray, who was runner-up at Roland Garros last year, has been struggling in 2017 and looked uncomfortable at times during the second set.
But the world No. 1 got into his stride and saw out the final set in just 27 minutes, sealing the match with a forehand down the line after winning eight successive games.
''Last year was a great year for me, you know it was the best I ever played,'' Murray said. ''Here at the beginning of my career I struggled. But each year I kept coming back and was trying a little bit better and last year was really good.
''And last year during Bercy that's when I reached No. 1 for first time, so I've got very good memories from Paris last year, and I'll try and have another good one year this year.''
The British player will face Martin Klizan in the second round.
Thanassi Kokkinakis came short in his bid to win his first match at a major in two years.
Eighth-seeded Kei Nishikori had to work hard, however, to beat the 21-year-old Australian 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 on Court 1 at the French Open.
Kokkinakis's promising career has been derailed by a shoulder injury that required surgery in December 2015. He was playing only his third singles match since then.
Nishikori's next opponent will be Jeremy Chardy.
Laurent Lokoli did not do honor to his wild card at the French Open.
Not only did the Frenchman lose in the first round, he also refused a handshake from his opponent.
After losing 7-6 (4), 6-3, 4-6, 0-6, 6-4 to Martin Klizan, Lokoli did not go the net to wait for the Slovakian player. As Klizan came over to the Frenchman, Lokoli gestured to make it clear he didn't want to get near him.
Lokoli later said Klizan was the one who did not respect him because he kept simulating injuries throughout their match.
''He was not chasing drop shots and faked that his leg was hurting for more than two sets. Then he was running around like a rabbit in the fifth set,'' Lokoli said. ''And then he speaks to me about respect.''
The two men also traded barbs during the match after Klizan shouted his joy to celebrate a double-fault from Lokoli that gave him a 5-2 lead in the decider.
On a day of upsets on Court Philippe Chatrier, ninth-seeded Alexander Zverev lost to Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 when their first-round match resumed.
Zverev, who is regarded as one of the most gifted players on tour, broke his racket during the fourth set.
The match was suspended on Monday because of darkness after the players split the first two sets.
The 20-year-old Zverev was one of the outside favorites after impressing on his way to victory at the Italian Open.
Madison Keys ended a four-match losing streak by winning on clay for the first time this year, beating Ashleigh Barty 6-3, 6-2 at the French Open.
The 12th-seeded American held a 22-10 edge in winners, did not face any break points, and took advantage of Barty's seven double-faults.
Keys, a 2015 Australian Open semifinalist, missed the first two months of this season after left wrist surgery.
Barty has now lost all nine career matches against top-20 opponents.
Stan Wawrinka is safely through to the second round of the French Open after a 6-2, 7-6 (6), 6-3 win over Jozef Kovalik of Slovakia.
Wawrinka started his clay season poorly before emerging with a title at the Geneva Open last week. The No. 3 seed kept up his momentum in Paris.
''I enjoyed it very much,'' said Wawrinka, who won at Roland Garros in 2015. ''It was not necessarily easy after I played in Geneva until Saturday to get into gear. I'm feeling good, I'm playing good tennis and I'm happy to be back in Paris.''
Johanna Konta got off to a flying start and then faded away as she bowed out of the French Open in the first round - for the third year in a row.
The seventh-seeded British player lost to 109th-ranked Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan 1-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4.
Konta has never won a main-draw match at Roland Garros.
On Tuesday, she won 13 of the 15 first points on Court Philippe Chatrier but was unable to keep the same level throughout, ending with a total of 38 unforced errors.
Hsieh saved four break points when serving for the match and sealed her win when Konta made a return error.
Nick Kyrgios of Australia beat Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany in straight sets to reach the second round of the French Open.
The 18th-seeded Kyrgios hit 20 aces on his way to the 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-3 victory.
Kyrgios argued with the umpire in the second set when a key call went against him when he had a break point for 5-4, but he regained his focus to take the tiebreaker with an ace, on his third set point.
Former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro has won his first match in five years at the French Open.
Playing at the clay-court major for the first time since 2012, del Potro won an all-Argentine contest against qualifier Guido Pella 6-2, 6-1, 6-4.
Del Potro showed no sign of the shoulder and back problems that hampered him at the Lyon Open last week and did not face a single break point.
Del Potro's best result at Roland Garros is the semifinals in 2009, the year he won at Flushing Meadows.
Fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina hit a crosscourt forehand winner on match point to win the first match on Court Suzanne Lenglen and seal her spot in the second round of the French Open.
Svitolina converted all three break points and hit 25 winners to prevail 6-4, 6-3 over Yaroslava Shvedova, a two-time quarterfinalist in Paris.
Svitolina is coming off the Rome title two weeks ago and is an outside favorite in Paris, where she made it to the quarterfinals two years ago. The Ukrainian has won three other tournaments this year.
''I was very happy with the way I handled the pressure,'' she said. ''It's the first time that I have won four titles and two big ones so it's given me a lot of confidence.''
After becoming No. 1 last year, Andy Murray has been struggling in 2017, but he'll try to right himself starting in the French Open's first round against Andrey Kuznetsov on Tuesday.
Joining Murray, the runner-up a year ago in Paris, in finally getting going on Day 3 will be 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka, who meets Jozek Kovalik.
The showdown of the day should be 15th-seeded Gael Monfils of France against Dustin Brown of Germany. Both hit highlight-worthy shots on a regular basis.
In the women's draw, No. 3 Simona Halep is up against Jana Cepelova, and No. 5 Elina Svitolina plays Yaroslava Shvedova.
First up on Court Philippe Chatrier is seventh-seeded Johanna Konta against Su-Wei Hsieh.
