Young Aussie Ajla Tomljanovic kicked off her French Open campaign today, battling to beat Ukraine’s Kateryna Kozlova 6-2 6-4.

Tomljanovic, No.2 behind Ash Barty, raced into a 5-0 lead in the first set before losing two games – then comfortably taking the set.

Kozlova, ranked 83 places lower than Tomljanovic then began a comeback and a seesaw second set that had five breaks of serve, eventually saw Tomljanovic prevail after one hour and 41 minutes.
