Former champion Garbine Muguruza narrowly avoided a first-round exit at the French Open on Monday when she battled for three hours to beat Slovenia's Tamara Zidansek 7-5 4-6 8-6. Zidansek lost her only previous main-draw match at Roland Garros but asked all sorts of questions of Muguruza who struggled to hit through a tricky opponent. Muguruza needed treatment for a blister on her hand at 3-4 in the final set and saved a break point in the next game.
