ATP Lyon Open: when is Cameron Norrie playing? How to watch tennis tournament, top seeds, prize money

Cameron Norrie is the first seed at the ATP Lyon Open with a week to go before French Open at Roland-Garros Stadium.

This week sees the ATP Lyon Open take place in France with many of the world’s best players missing out to rest ahead of the French Open next week.

Roland-Garros is the second Grand Slam of the year and will have Novak Djokovic defending his title in the country’s capital.

Andy Murray recently revealed that he will no longer be participating in the French Open as he prepares for Wimbledon - the third Grand Slam of the Year which takes place in July.

As the world’s top 10 miss out on the Lyon Open, it is Britain’s Cameron Norrie who is leading the way and gives him a solid chance of finding his feet in France ahead of Roland-Garros next week.

Norrie is joined by Gael Monfils in France as they both hope to reach another ATP title ahead of the second Grand Slam of the year.

With all the top 10 missing in the Lyon Open, Norrie is the number one seed in the tournament and will not have to fear battling the defending champion, Stefanos Tsitsipas, in the final once again after falling second to the Greek in the 2021 tournament.

Tsitsipas, like many of his peers in the top 10 of the ATP rankings, will feature in the French Open in Paris next week.
