Rafael Nadal has been utterly dominant in Paris, racking up 13 of his 20 Grand Slams in the French capital, and he will be aiming to further add to his tally this year.

On the women's side, Iga Swiatek is the bookies' favourite for repeating her astonishing triumph last year. The Polish sensation did not drop a single set as she stormed to the title in 2020 in style.
Garbine Muguruza has been the form player so far this year and has been in quite brilliant form since the Australian Open, which was won by Naomi Osaka for her fourth Grand Slam title.
Can Serena Williams finally secure that elusive record-equalling 24th Grand Slam crown? Roland Garros has never been her favourite event, but the 39-year-old still has three titles to her name in Paris.
