Where to Watch Live

The match is set to begin at 12pm BST. Live coverage will be on ITV 4, British Eurosport or British Eurosport 2. Radio commentary, regular updates and live scores are available on Roland Garros' official website.


17-time Grand Slam winner Federer brushed aside Diego Sebastian Schwartzman in straight sets to book his place in the third round. The fourth seed needed103 minutes to oust the 21-year-old Argentinean, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, in straight sets.

Meanwhile, Tursunov too registered his second straight-set victory of this year's French Open after beating Sam Querrey in the previous round. The 31-year-old needed 101 minutes to secure his place in the last 32 with the score, 6-4, 7-5, 6-1.

Federer and Tursunov last clashed in an ATP Masters Tour earlier this year at Indian Wells, where the World no 4 outshined his Russian counterpart in a closely fought contest that decided the outcome of both sets in tiebreaker.

The 32-year-old Swiss maestro will be keen to register a fifth straight victory against his third round opponent as he gears up to register his 61st victory in Paris.

The victor from this third round clash takes on the winner between Radek Stepanek and Ernests Gulbis in the next round.


Federer holds a 4-0 lead over Tursunov in overall meetings. The pair have never clashed in a Grand Slam event.
