French Open 2024 tennis tournament will begin today at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris. The main draw matches at the second grand slam of the year will begin on Sunday, 26th May. India’s star player Sumit Nagal secured his place in the main draw of the men’s singles. He is the first Indian male player to qualify for the French Open main draw since Prajnesh Gunneswaran in 2019.

The 26-year-old Nagal recently stunned world No. 38 Matteo Arnaldi at the Monte Carlo Masters where he became the first Indian tennis player to qualify for the main draw of the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in 42 years.

The centre of attention in the men’s singles will be the ‘King of Clay’ Rafael Nadal of Spain and Serbia’s world No.1 Novak Djokovic. World No.3 Carlos Alcaraz of Spain is also

expected to be a strong contender. Former US champion Daniil Medvedev and former Australian Open winner Jannik Sinner are also in the mix along with two-time French Open runners-up and world No. 6 Casper Ruud. In the men’s doubles, veteran Rohan Bopanna, ranked fourth in the world, and his world No. 3 Matthew Ebden of Australia will be among the title favourites. Yuki Bhambri will partner Albano Olivetti of France while Sumit Nagal will also compete in the men’s doubles along with Sebastian Ofner of Austria. Anirudh Chandrasekar-Arjun Kadhe and Rithvik Choudary Bollipalli-Niki Kaliyanda Poonacha are the two all-Indian pairs in this category. Action in the women’s singles is expected to be led by world No. 1 and three-time French Open champion Iga Swiatek of Poland.
