French Open Preview


Roland Garros, the final and most prestigious tournament of the clay-court season, kicks off this Sunday.

Defending champion Rafael Nadal could become the first man to win seven French Open titles, but world number one Novak Djokovic and the in-form Roger Federer will do everything in their power to stop him.

Meanwhile, the race for the women’s title should be a close one with a number of players in great shape ahead of the event.

Defending champion Li Na, who has not won a tournament since the French Open, will lock horns with Sorana Cirstea of Romania in the first round while World Number One Victoria Azarenka will face
Italy’s Alberta Brianti.
