Paris is once more hosting the second Grand Slam of the year at the Roland-Garros Stadium.
The last Grand Slam event took place in January with Rafael Nadal making history as he took his 21st Grand Slam title, defeating the world number two Daniil Medvedev 2-6 6-7(5-7) 6-4 6-4 7-5 in the process.
Novak Djokovic was famously deported ahead of the first Grand Slam of the year due to providing insufficient evidence for being unvaccinated.
The Serb will however be able to defend his title in France and is in to the second round after beating Yoshihito Nishiokova 6-3 6-1 6-0.
The young spaniard Carlos Alcaraz will also be in action at the French Open. He beat Juan Londero in the first round 6-4 6-2 6-0 and will face fellow spanish player Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the second round.
Alcaraz became the youngest US Open quarter-finalist of the Open era last Septemeber and then went on to win his first Masters at the Miami Open in early April - only his Spanish hero Nadal has one two such titles at a younger age.
Ahead of Roland-Garros, it will be Alcaraz - who Alexander Zverev (Alvarez’ Madrid Open final opponent) described as ‘going to be world number on’ - who is the one to watch.
Here is all you need to know on how to keep up with the latest from Paris.
