Third seeded and in-form Elina Svitolina could well be the dark horse in the women’s draw after her showing at Strasbourg and she will have a good chance of proving that when she takes on surprise Mexican opponent Renata Zarazu in her second round match.
That will be the first match at the Philipp-Chatrier court today and will be followed by the 23-time champion Serena Williams who takes on comeback queen Tsvetana Pironkova in what will be a repeat of the last match Williams won and Pironkova played on tour. This could be interesting one, especially if Serena is unable to get off to a quick start.
All eyes will be on Rafael Nadal who faces American Mackenzie McDonald in what should be a reasonably quick affair for the Spaniard and they will be third on the court while the final match on this main court will have the US Open finalist Alexander Zverev in action. He takes on Pierre-Hugues Herbert in their second round.
Stan Wawrinka, who had an easy first round outing against three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray will be the first out on this court for his second round match. He takes on the German and man-in-form in recent times, Dominik Koepfer for a place in round three.
He will be followed by Dominic Thiem, the third seed gunning for his second Grand Slam win in a row and the Austrian takes on American qualifier Jack Sock in the second round. Thiem had beaten Marin Cilic in his opener.
Simona Halep is on a solid run this season and will face fellow Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu in the second round, before the action at this court ends with a match between local favourite Caroline Garcia and Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
Victoria Azarenka didn’t look too happy in the cold but still had no worries winning her opener against Danka Kovinic; she will be the first in action on this court when she takes on Anna Karolina Schmiedlova in her second round match.
Diego Schwartzman will be up against the marathon man Lorenzo Giustino in his next match today while Benoit Paire clashes with Federico Coria. In the last match on this court, Cori Gauff will be up against Martina Trevisan, who was benefitted by the retirement of Camila Giorgi in her opener.
Some of the other top players in action today include Kiki Bertens who faces the former French Open runnerup Sara Errani, Amanda Anisimova, who faces fellow American Bernarda Pera, and youngster Iga Swiatek who will be up against Hsieh Su-wei.
Kei Nishikori, Jannik Sinner, John Isner, Elise Mertens, Yulia Putintseva, Eugenie Bouchard and Maria Sakkari will all be in action as well today.
Action begins at 11 am local time (10 am BST or 5 am Eastern Time). Get all the latest, match by match French Open 2020 previews and predictions here.
