How to watch the French Open 2022 on TV and live stream

The French Open is approaching with winds of change that are pushing the world’s best tennis players towards Roland-Garros – and there’s a potential crowning of a new king to look forward to.

Rafael Nadal may be the King of Clay, but a contender for the throne has emerged in compatriot Carlos Alcaraz Garfia.

19-year-old sensation Alcaraz Garfia won the Barcelona Open and Madrid Open before retiring from the Italian Open this week to rest ahead of Roland-Garros.

He defeated Nadal, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev en route to the title in Madrid and is considered a real threat for his first Grand Slam win in Paris.

In the women’s, 2020 champion and reigning world No. 1 Iga Swiatek is hoping to extend her dominance at the top of the rankings in her maiden Grand Slam event while sitting at the top.

British stars Andy Murray, Emma Raducanu, Dan Evans and Cam Norrie are all expected at the French Open and are hoping the latter two can get deep into the tournament. Murray and Raducanu are under pressure to make the most of opportunities in Grand Slams.

Fans around the world will be excited to see who will be attending the occasion in Paris, and there are plenty of opportunities to soak up the drama in the UK.
