British player Cameron Norrie defeated Adrian Mannarino in the first round at the Monte-Carlo Masters to advance in the competition.
Meanwhile, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retired from his first round match at the 2019 Monte-Carlo Masters on Tuesday.
The former world number five from France, Tsonga, was trailing Taylor Fritz by a set and was a break down in the second when he pulled out of his match because of an injury.
The world number 105 was coming into this tournament on the back of a semi-final appearance at the Marrakech Open last week and was the favourite going into this match. However he quickly fell behind and was down 4-6, 0-2 when he opted out of the match.
Norrie earned an early break in his match against Mannarino and sealed the set before repeating the same in the second to clinch the encounter 6-4, 6-3.
He will now take on Marton Fucsovics in the second round after the Hungarian surprised the 12th seeded Nikoloz Basilashvili in a fighting three-setter. Fritz, on the other hand will be up against Diego Schwartzman, who sent the only other Brit in the draw, the 17th seeded Kyle Edmund packing despite losing the first set.
