Gasquet was handed a bye into the second round in Marseille and Kavcic did not have to work much harder to progress as he eased to a 6-4 6-2 victory over his Australian wildcard opponent.

In the day's qualifiers, Britain's Dan Evans advanced to take on Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky in the first round with a 6-3 6-4 win over Switzerland's Henri Laaksonen.

Evans' countryman Jamie Ward failed to make it into the last-32 though as he went down 7-5 6-3 to Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis at the final qualifying hurdle with France's David Guez and Croatian Ante Pavic also making it into the main draw.
