Andy Murray must overcome Australian Open holder Stanislas Wawrinka and eight-time champion Rafael Nadal to reach his maiden French Open final after being handed a tough draw for the second major of 2014.
The Wimbledon champion will begin his campaign in Paris against world No.55 Andrey Golubev, before a potential second round meeting with Marinko Matosevic or Dustin Brown while German Phillip Kohlschreiber and home-favourite Richard Gasquet await later in the draw.
World No.2 Novak Djokovic, who defeated Nadal in Rome last week, starts his campaign against Joao Sousa, while the 2009 champion Roger Federer has been paired with Lukas Lacko.
Bernard Tomic could set up an all-Australian round two clash with Lleyton Hewitt should he overcome Gasquet in the match of the opening round of the men's draw.
With Laura Robson having withdrawn from the tournament with a wrist problem, Murray is the only British player in the main draw at the French Open, but trio Heather Watson, Johanna Konta and James Ward are all on the brink of entering as qualifiers.
In the women's draw, defending champion Serena Willliams starts off against Alize Lim and could face sister Venus in round three and then Maria Sharapova at the quarter final stage.
The French Open begins on Sunday, 25 May.
