French Open schedule: Start dates and times for each round of the competition

The second Grand Slam event of the season is underway with the leading players across both the men's and women's tours hoping to conquer the Parisian clay.

Rafael Nadal is the defending men's champion, but his hopes of claiming an unprecedented 15th clay-court title in the French capital this year are over after having to withdraw through injury.

That means Novak Djokovic will have his eyes set on clinching a third French Open success, which would see him claim a record 23rd Grand Slam singles title.

In the women's draw, all focus will be on world number one Iga Swiatek who, despite being only 21 years of age, is already pursuing a third French Open crown.

However, the Pole recently retired during her quarter-final clash with Elena Rybakina in Rome, which means Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka may be fancying her chances of following up.
