The second Grand Slam of the 2016 season is upon us as the players take to the red clay courts at the Stade de Roland Garros. Novak Djokovic will start as favourite to complete a career Grand Slam after a stellar season thus far, but the return to form of Rafael Nadal and the threat of defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka are not to be ignored.

The men's and women's singles draws took place on Friday (20 May) and with Federer's withdrawal, Nadal was moved up to 4th seed, which will see him on a collision course with Djokovic in the semi-finals if they win their respective matches up to that point. Andy Murray will start at the other end of the draw with Stan Wawrinka awaiting him in the last four if it goes according to the seeding.

On the women's singles front, Serena Williams returns as the top seed and defending champion. The World No 1 won her first title in over seven months when she claimed the Rome Masters title leading up to the French Open. Williams will be the favourite, but will face some tough competitors in Victoria Azarenka, Angelique Kerber and Garbine Muguruza.
