It’s time for another tennis Grand Slam competition as the tour heads to the famous Roland-Garros clay courts for the 2022 French Open.
This year’s women’s singles tournament is the first Grand Slam without Venus or Serena Williams since 2011, and a number of top players have dropped out of the competition early, including defending champion Barbora Krejčíková, Naomi Osaka, Maria Sakkari and the reigning US Open winner Emma Raducanu.
It is also the first women’s Grand Slam tournament since then-world number one Ash Barty surprisingly retired from the sport just a few months after winning the Australian Open.
Roger Federer is not taking part in the men’s singles tournament as he continues his recovery from knee surgery, although he hopes to return to the Tour this year.
Meanwhile, defending champion Novak Djokovic is aiming to equal Rafael Nadal’s record of 21 major men’s singles titles. Nadal is also hoping to extend that record at a venue where he has won a remarkable 13 titles.
While Andy Murray isn’t playing at Roland-Garros this year, you can catch sight of Cameron Norrie, the current number one in British men’s singles, who has made it through to the third round and will play his next match on Friday (27 May). .
With the French Open already underway and running until June 5th, get in the mood for all the action here.
