Petra Kvitova cried after winning her first match since being stabbed during a burglary at her home in December.

The Czech, 27, looked impressive in beating American Julia Boserup 6-3 6-2 to reach round two of the French Open.

Kvitova suffered career-threatening injuries to her left hand in the attack, but recovered quicker than expected to play in Paris.

The two-time Wimbledon champion said: “It’s a pleasure to be here and I’m happy I made the decision to play.”
