Paris - Novak Djokovic has a potentially tricky second-round match at the French Open on Wednesday when he faces local favourite Jeremy Chardy - the man who beat Roger Federer at this year's Rome Masters.

Serbian second seed Djokovic, chasing the only grand slam to elude him, eased through the first round just like Frenchman Chardy, who reached the last eight in Rome.

Federer, the 17-times grand slam champion, is scheduled to play Argentine Diego Sebastian Schwartzman on court Suzanne Lenglen after world No 1 and defending champion Serena Williams plays Spain's Garbine Muguruza.

Last year's runner-up Maria Sharapova, the Russian seventh seed, closes proceedings on Chatrier against Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova.

There will be plenty to cheer for for the local crowd as six French players are scheduled on the show courts.
