Third-seeded Federer, who won the tournament at Roland Garros in 2009 to complete a career Grand Slam, beat Feliciano Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 on Monday. He now faces Frenchman Maxime Teixeira, ranked 181 in the world.
Stanislas Wawrinka, seeded 14, beat local player Augustin Gensse 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday.
"I expected, like every year, the first match not to be too easy," said Wawrinka. "I was a bit slow. I took some time before I got into the match. In the first round it's never so easy."
The third and final Swiss player in the French capital, Patty Schnyder, is in action on Tuesday.
