The second Grand Slam of the year—the only one to be played on clay courts—has been a successful hunting ground for Rafael Nadal, with 13 of his 21 major titles won at Roland-Garros. The men’s field will be competitive, with Novak Djokovic cleared to play and up-and-coming 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz now ranked in the top 10. In the women’s competition, World No.1 Iga Swiatek is in incredible form off the back of four straight singles titles, while the likes of Barbora Krejcikova, Paula Badosa, and Naomi Osaka are ones to watch.
