Paris - French number one Jo-Wilfried Tsonga crashed out of the first round at Roland Garros, going down to Argentina's Renzo Olivo in four sets after just one game played Wednesday.

World number 91 Olivo was one game away from victory when their match was halted due to darkness on Tuesday, but he broke the 12th seed immediately when play resumed to advance 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (6/8), 6-4.

The 25-year-old is making his Roland Garros main draw debut and will meet Britain's Kyle Edmund for a place in the last 32.
