The French Open is back at Roland-Garros in 2024, promising an exciting tournament on the famous Parisian clay courts. Carlos Alcaraz, despite not winning here before, is a top pick due to his impressive performances on clay and recent victory at Indian Wells.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic, despite a challenging start to the year and now coaching himself, remains a strong contender.

Jannik Sinner, coming off wins at the Australian Open and Miami Open, is expected to have a notable run. Rafael Nadal, a 14-time champion, is likely to compete in his last French Open amid ongoing injury concerns.

On the women’s side, defending champion Iga Swiatek aims for her third consecutive title, with Aryna Sabalenka and Coco Gauff as her main rivals. Jelena Ostapenko, a former champion and current top 10 player, is considered a dark horse after a strong season.
