Open France 2022

Check out our comprehensive guide to how to watch the French Open 2022 tennis, including schedule, final date, TV and live stream details.

The French Open is approaching with the winds of change shunting the world’s finest tennis players towards Roland-Garros – and there’s a potential coronation of a new king to look forward to.

Rafael Nadal may be the King of Clay, but a pretender to the throne has emerged in the shape of Spanish compatriot Carlos Alcaraz Garfia.

The 19-year-old sensation Alcaraz Garfia won the Barcelona Open and Madrid Open before withdrawing from this week’s Italian Open in order to rest before Roland-Garros.

He defeated Nadal, world No.1 Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev on the way to the title in Madrid and is seen as a genuine threat to win his first Grand Slam in Paris.

In the women’s game, 2020 champion and reigning world No.1 Iga Swiatek will hope to extend her dominance at the top of the rankings in her first Grand Slam event while sitting at the very summit.

British stars Andy Murray, Emma Raducanu, Dan Evans and Cam Norrie are all expected to feature at the French Open with high hopes the latter two can go deep into the tournament. Murray and Raducanu are under pressure to make the most of opportunities in Grand Slams.

Fans around the world will be determined to see who rises to the occasion in Paris, and there are plenty of ways to soak up the drama in the UK.

Where is the French Open 2022 held?

The tournament is held at Stade Roland-Garros, Paris – a historic venue for tennis action, the pinnacle of the clay court game.

It was named after Roland Garros, a French airman, engineer and World War I pilot, who completed the first solo flight across the Mediterranean Sea.
