On May 26, when the French Open begins in full swing with the Men’s and Women’s singles first round, all eyes will be on a few key players. While the prospects of defending champion Novak Djokovic and14-time champ Rafael Nadal will decide the course of the Men’s singles, for the women, three-time champ Iga Swiatek is expected to waltz through for a fourth career French Open.

Predictions by tennis experts for the French Open have a wildly varied field for the Men’s singles, but in the women’s singles, Swiatek is the only name that comes up as winner. Aryna Sabalenka is expected to be in the finale with Swiatek, although some predict names like Elina Svitolina, Zheng Qinwen as finalists.

The French Open

The French Open is one of four Grand Slam tournaments in the tennis calendar and the only one to be played on clay court. It is held at the Roland Garros Stadium, which is spread over 34 acres and houses 20 courts. The winner of the Women’s singles championship gets the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen, named after Suzanne Lenglen, a French player and World No. 1 from 1921 to 1926.
