French Open 2021: How can I watch tennis for FREE on TV in the UK today?

·1-min read

The French Open is underway, with Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer all in the same half of the men’s draw.

With Nadal having dropped behind Daniil Medvedev to third in the rankings, it raised the possibility of a lopsided draw, and so it has proved.

There can be no repeat of last year's final, when Nadal defeated Djokovic to win a 20th grand slam title, with the pair seeded to meet in the last four.

In the women's draw, defending champion Iga Swiatek opened against Slovenia's Kaja Juvan and is in the same half as top seed Ashleigh Barty, who returns to Roland Garros for the first time since winning the title in 2019 and faces American Bernarda Pera first up.

Seventh seed Serena Williams is in the opposite half and meets Irina-Camelia Begu while second seed Naomi Osaka has withdrawn due to concerns over his own mental health.
