It was Divij's second straight opening-round loss at a Grand Slam after the US Open ouster.
Veteran Rohan Bopanna is the only Indian left in French Open now and he begins his men's doubles campaign later on Thursday with Canadian partner Denis Shapovalov.
They face the pair of Jack Sock and Vasek Pospisil.
