Who is playing, who is missing in Roland Garros 2023?

The big absentee will of course be the record champion: Rafael Nadal, who announced a few days ago that he will not be able to participate this year due to injury. In the men's tableau, Matteo Berrettini, Andy Murray and Nick Kyrgios are also missing other names that guarantee attractive tennis. In the case of women, on the other hand, the extended world class competes completely.

Who are the defending champions in Paris?

Last year Nadal won the title at the Bois de Boulogne for the 14th time - with a smooth three-set win against Casper Ruud in the final. In the women's final, Iga Swiatek gave Cori Gauff no chance.

Who are the favorites in 2023?

For women, it boils down to a three-way battle between Swiatek, Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina. For the men, Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic must be mentioned first of all, after his surprising success in Rome, Daniil Medvedev may even be to be expected. Stefanos Tsitsipas has also shown increasing form recently. Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem will probably play the role of dangerous outsiders this year.

Where will the French Open be broadcast live on TV and live stream?

Eurosport will broadcast all matches live on TV and in a live stream on Discovery Plus. In Austria, Servus TV and Servus TV On show a top match every day, including the semi-finals and finals for men and women.

What did the draw bring?

The draw for Roland Garros will take place on Thursday 25 May at 2pm.
