By Vaseline May26,2024

Andy Murray faces Stan Wawrinka on the opening day of the French Open at Roland Garro as Naomi Osaka and Carlos Alcaraz highlight the first afternoon of action.

Murray, a former finalist on the Paris circuit, is expected to play at the French Open for the final time and the 37-year-old produced a stunning first round match against Wawrinka, 39, in a rematch of their 2016 semi-finals and 2017. -final at Roland Garros.

Alcaraz is trying to win the French Open for the first time after previous grand slam successes at the US Open and Wimbledon. The Spaniard saw his preparations disrupted by an injury and faces JJ Wolf, the lucky loser from qualifying. Jack Draper comes into action and takes on Dutch qualifier Jesper De Jong. If Draper wins, he could face Alcaraz in the second round.

Osaka will play this year’s French Open for the first time since returning to the tour. The former world number 1 will set up a mouth-watering clash with defending champion Iga Swiatek if she beats Lucia Bronzetti in the opening match at Philippe-Chatier.
