Andy Murray and Dan Evans will turn their focus to doubles at the French Open after their first-round singles defeats at Roland Garros.

Andy Murray fell to a comprehensive three-set defeat against Stan Wawrinka on the opening day of the tournament, while Evans was soundly beaten by 13th seed Holder Rune on Tuesday.

The pair received a wildcard invitation to compete in the doubles competition and face South American duo Sebastian Baez and Thiago Seyboth Wild in the first round.

Baez, seed 20th in the singles draw, came through a five-set match against Gustavo Heide, while Seyboth Wild fell to defeat against local favourite Gael Monflis.

Andy Murray has hinted that he would like to compete in the Paris Olympics before retiring and will hope to make his case for a spot in the doubles format alongside Evans or Joe Salisbury.
