In the men’s draw, Novak Djokovic is the defending champion, while Iga Swiatek is the reigning women’s champ.

Jannik Sinner, who is set to dethrone Djokovic from his No.1 ranking, may or may not make it to Roland Garros, as he’s still nursing a hip injury he sustained during the Monte Carlo Masters. Also, not in great form is 13-time champion and the undisputed King of Clay, Rafael Nadal. Back after a long injury break, Nadal lost to Hubert Hurkacz in the second round of the ongoing Italian Open, but remains positive about heading to Paris.

Some of the other big names expected to be at the French Open include, Carlos Alcaraz, Aryna Sabalenka, Coco Gauff, Elena Rybakina, Jessica Pegula, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tstitipas, Angelique Kerber, Naomi Osaka, Daniil Medvedev, Casper Rudd, Holger Rune, among many others. In the women’s draw, the current cut-off ranking is set at No. 99, while for the men it is No. 98.
