French Open prize money: How much could Roland Garros winners earn?

World No. 1 Andy Murray has been seeded to face 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka in the last four.

The year's second Grand Slam tournament started on the red clay of Roland Garros under a partly cloudy sky Sunday, with Kvitova getting things going in the main stadium in a first-round match against 86th-ranked Julie Boserup of the United States.

Spain's Rafael Nadal will be the favourite to claim his 10th French Open title.

The French Open tennis starts at the Roland Garros Stadium in Paris from tomorrow. Want a stat that would blow your mind? Nadal boasts a sensational career record at Roland Garros - 72 wins and just two defeats, to Djokovic in 2015 and an injury-affected shock loss to Robin Soderling in 2009. Victory in Istanbul came without meeting a top-50 player, while wins over both Garbine Muguruza and Halep in Rome came with both players nursing injuries.

The 27-year-old Czech will complete her return to tennis against Julia Boserup. He's made his top-10 debut last Monday, thanks to his title triumph in Rome, beating Djokovic in the final nonetheless. Well the future is a lot closer than we thought it was.

Nadal has also thrived on hard courts in 2017, reaching his first Slam final in three years when he lost in five sets to Federer in Australia despite being a break to the good in the deciding set. "And Rafa, again, playing on his favourite surface won three tournaments in a row, and playing confidently and much better than he was playing actually past year".

"That's a question for him, to be honest", Djokovic said.

Agassi and Djokovic have been speaking regularly on the phone for the past couple of weeks but trained together for the first time on Thursday at Roland Garros.

Rafael Nadal heads into the French Open with a great deal of confidence after winning the Monte-Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open and Madrid Open. Could be a tricky fourth round opponent for Djokovic.

The victor of the first Grand Slam of 2017, Australian Open, Federer, lifted his maiden silver trophy designed and made by Maison Mellerio dits Meller, in 2009.

Zverev vs. Verdasco is not the only first-round showdown to watch.

Why does someone such as former player and coach Brad Gilbert, now an ESPN commentator, say, "Today's 30 is like 25 used to be", as he did this week?

Hot shots galore! Bring your popcorn for that one. Although Djokovic has got the hang of playing on Parisian clay now, his poor run of form in the recent months does not vouch for him to be a strong competitor for the Spaniard playing on his most-preferred surface.

Nadal will kick off his campaign against local favorite Benoit Paire, and is likely to face fifth-seeded Milos Raonic in the quarter-final if everything goes well in his way.

Believe it or not, Cilic won a title on clay earlier this month, in Istanbul. Live streams will be available via the ITV Player, NBC Sports app and the Tennis Channel.
