Where to Watch Live

The match starts at 3pm BST. Live coverage is on British Eurosport, British Eurosport HD, British Eurosport 2, British Eurosports 2 HD, ITV 4. Real-time internet updates are available on Roland Garros' official website.


After making it to the finals on two occasions in the last three years, Djokovic will be hoping to win the Roland Garros for the first time in his career. In the two defeats in the final, the Serbian lost to the defending champion Rafael Nadal.

The world number one has won the other three Grand Slams and his recent form has made him one of the firm favourites to win the tournament. Djokovic will be looking to win the tournament with a victory in the first round on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Nieminen has not had success in the ongoing Grand Slam as a fourth round exit in 2003 was his best finish in Roland Garros. At 33, it is going to be a tough job for the Finnish tennis star to beat Djokovic.
