Williams arrives in Paris still looking for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title having failed to lift a major title since returning a year ago after giving birth to her daughter.
Assuming Williams adequately recovers physically, it is hard to envisage either Kurumi Nara or Dalila Jakupovic ousting her in the second round.
Williams fired four aces in the set but also 14 unforced errors.
The tennis star won her first round match in three sets against Vitalia Diatchenko and after the match, she spoke to Tennis Channel about her new fit.

He said he didn't think he had food poisoning because he felt fine before the match: "Throwing up during the match isn't something that normally happens to me".
After throwing up twice on the court, Frances Tiafoe says he was "very depleted" for the fifth set of a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-0 first-round loss to Filip Krajinovic of Serbia.
"Obviously very depleted and had nothing really in me", said Tiafoe, now 0-4 at Roland Garros.
