What is there to look out for in the men's draw?

All eyes will be on where Nadal ends up in the men's draw. The clay-court legend - having started the year so imperiously - has been struck down by injury in recent months, with first a rib problem keeping him out of the start of the season on his favoured dirt, before then being afflicted by a flare-up of his chronic foot condition in Rome as he crashed out in the last 16.
Now likely to be seeded fifth, he could meet reigning champion, long-time rival and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic as early as the quarter-finals in the French capital. Djokovic - with ominous timing for his potential opponents - won his first title of the year at the Rome Open, seeing off Stefanos Tsitsipas in a repeat of last year's Roland-Garros final.
Alcaraz - set to be seeded sixth - is another name to watch come out of the hat, given his stunning year which has seen him become one of the favourites for any tournament he enters. But can he do it over seven best-of-five-set matches?
Cameron Norrie will be the highest-ranked Briton in the draw, as the likely 11th seed.

What is there to look out for in the women's draw?

World No. 1 Swiatek is on an incredible streak of form, having won her last 28 matches. Being drawn in her half will likely be what the rest of the tour want to avoid.
Uncertainty surrounds the participation of Barbora Krejcikova, who won the title last year in Paris. The Czech star hasn't played since Doha in mid-February with an arm injury. If she does make the draw, she will hope for a few easier matches in the early rounds.
Britain's Emma Raducanu is another struggling her with her fitness after a litany of physical issues this year. Remarkably, this will be her first appearance at Roland-Garros and she will hope to go in with her customarily fearless attitude that she shows whoever she is drawn against.
