Defending women’s champion Garbine Muguruza has been drawn against 2010 French Open winner Francesca Schiavone in her first-round matchup, while fellow front-runner Angelique Kerber will face Ekaterina Makarova.

Elsewhere, world No. 1 Andy Murray was drawn opposite Russian Andrey Kuznetsov as the first opponent in his quest to win a maiden French Open title, and he could face Kei Nishikori in the competition’s quarter-finals.
The women’s competition looks wide-open with both Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova absent from the running, and Petra Kvitova may have eyes on the grand prize as she makes her long-awaited return to play in Paris.

The official Roland Garros Twitter account confirmed the men’s singles draw soon after Friday’s announcement:
Since Novak Djokovic lifted the title at Roland Garros on June 5, 2016, the world of tennis has been turned upside down, with Sir Andy Murray rising to the top of the rankings, before Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal returning to real prominence at the start of the year following breaks from the game through injury.

With Federer opting to skip the event in order to concentrate on the grass-court season and Djokovic and Murray struggling to find their best form, Nadal is being championed as the major favourite to add a 10th title in Paris.

Here we take a look ahead to the tournament and offer a prediction as to who will come out on.
Djokovic beat Murray 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-4 in the final on Philippe Chatrier to win the one Grand Slam that had escaped his clutches for so long.

Having been a runner-up in Paris on three previous occasions, Djokovic became just the third man in history to hold all four majors at once – something only Don Budge and Rod Laver had achieved before him – after adding his elusive first title at Roland Garros.

Nine-time champion Nadal withdrew with a wrist injury ahead of his third-round match with Marcel Granollers, while 2015 winner Stan Wawrinka was beaten by Murray in the last-four on his way to his first French Open final. French Open 2017 Live Stream
