Svitolina made a nervous start on Court Suzanne Lenglen, falling 5-1 down, but battled back and levelled the opening set as Tomljanovic dumped a backhand into the net after a bruising point.

The Australian's collapse was complete as Svitolina wrapped up the set with six consecutive games. The world number four saved a break point in the first game of the second set and finished off an ultimately comfortable victory on her first match point as Tomljanovic fired wide.
