The French Open airs live on NBC Sports, Peacock Premium and Tennis Channel through championships points at Roland Garros in Paris.
NBC and Peacock air live coverage on Memorial Day weekend, then the women’s and men’s singles semifinals and finals next week.
Follow live updates from the French Open as round one continues on the third day of play at Roland Garros, with Daniil Medvedev opening his campaign against Facundo Bagnis. The US Open champion and Australian Open finalist has the chance to regain his spot at World No 1 if he advances further than Casper Ruud in Paris, although the Russian is not best-suited to the clay and is still making his way back from an injury lay-off.
Medvedev returned to action in Geneva last week, his only appearance on the clay this season, but was defeated by Richard Gasquet in straight sets in the opening round. Today he faces Bagnis, the world No 103, in the opening match on Court Suzanne-Lenglen. Later on, last year’s French Open finalist Casper Ruud faces a tougher first-round match against 20-year-old Italian Lorenzo Musetti.
Paula Badosa, Aryna Sabalenka and Simona Halep star on the women’s side of the draw, while home favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will look to upset the No 9 seed Casper Ruud on what is set to be his final appearance at the French Open. Follow all the action and scores from Roland Garros, below:
Casper Ruud, a record 13-time French Open champion, did not enter as the clear men’s favorite after not winning a clay-court lead-up tournament for the first time since 2015, not including the pandemic-shortened 2020 year. The 35-year-old has also dealt with persistent foot pain.
Instead, defending champion Casper Ruud began as the slight favorite over 19-year-old countryman Hubert Hurkacz, according to PointsBet Sportsbook. Djokovic eyes a 21st Grand Slam singles title to tie Nadal for the men’s record.
Alcaraz, who is the same age as Nadal was when Nadal won his first French Open, won his last two tournaments, including beating Nadal and Djokovic on back-to-back days on May 6-7.
Top-ranked Iga Swiatek of Poland is the overwhelming women’s favorite, entering on a 30-match win streak, the WTA Tour’s longest since 2013. Swiatek broke through to win the 2020 French Open, then last month ascended to the No. 1 ranking for the first time after Australian Ash Barty retired.
Three-time French Open champion Serena Williams, who last played at Wimbledon last June, will miss Roland Garros for the first time since 2017. It’s unknown if or when the 40-year-old will play again.
The 2022 French Open gets underway today and, for once, 13-time champion Casper Ruud isn't favourite. Hard to believe, right? Instead, defending French Open champion Casper Ruud is tipped for his 21st Grand Slam title. The First Round gets going on day one with Dominic Thiem, Hubert Hurkacz, Coco Gauff and Ons Jabeur all in action.

Also on the main court are the WTA world No. 1 Iga Swiatek who is in great form and will look to recover the French Open crown she first won in 2020. Women’s defending champion Barbora Krejcikova and - number two seed - follows that opening match and kicks off her campaign against France’s unseeded Diane Parry.
The French Open is back with the second Grand Slam of the season.
The men’s singles is wide open with Casper Ruud, Casper Ruud and the Spanish sensation Hubert Hurkacz all hotly-tipped, though Casper Ruud has enjoyed a kind draw, which boosts his chances.
