Coco Gauff made a comeback from first set down against Spain’s Rebeka Masarova and won 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 to set up a tie against Austrian world number 61 Julia Grabher in the second round at the French Open.

Gauff who was the runner-up at the Roland Garros last year losing to Swiatek in her first major singles final struggled in the first set lacking trust shots. She was unable to find her rhythm to take any of eight break points.
