FATHER FEDERER: With or without his twin daughters in the stands, Roger Federer has to get back to work Wednesday at the French Open.

Federer won his opening match at Roland Garros with his girls watching a bit of the action. On Wednesday, he’ll be back on court to face Diego Sebastian Schwartzman of Argentina.

Federer won the French Open title in 2009 to complete a career Grand Slam. But he lost in the quarterfinals last year and in 2010, in the semifinals in 2012 and in the final in 2011.

ON SCHEDULE: Despite a rain-filled forecast and a couple of delays because of showers, the schedule at the French Open is almost completely caught up.

There was only one singles match that had to be pushed to Day 4 of the clay-court Grand Slam tournament, between Steve Johnson of the U.S. and Laurent Lokoli of France.

Johnson was leading 4-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 3-1 when play was suspended Tuesday because of darkness.
