Matches to Watch
Iga Swiatek v Claire Liu
Swiatek enjoyed a good birthday with the World Number One not having to play but the now 22-year-old will hope that another year older means another Roland Garros title.
She faces American, Claire Liu second up on Court Phillippe Chatrier. A player who she has faced twice times previously.
She holds a flawless record all the way back to the start of her playing days in 2018 with another meeting at Indian Wells meaning that they haven't played on clay yet.
Holger Rune v Gael Monfils
The night session game could feature another session of Monfils Magic in one of the most highly anticipated games of the second round.
Holger Rune who is also gaining a reputation as an entertainer similar to Monfils will be the opponent for the Frenchman. Used to playing with the crowd on his back, it is a situation that Rune will likely relish.
Expect true entertainment and likely more than three sets in this one.
*Note this has now been removed due to Monfils withdrawing from the tournament due to a wrist injury

Elena Rybakina v Linda Noskova
Another top WTA name continuing their campaign is Elena Rybakina who faces Linda Noskova in the next in line of the promising Czech talent.
It is another first time meeting between the pair. Noskova has shown promise this season reaching the final of Adelaide and having multiple other runs but has failed to reproduce that yet.
It is likely a step up though from Rybakina's opener against Brenda Fruhvirtova and will be one that could see the Kazakh tested.

Ruud, Jabeur, Zverev, Gauff, Fritz and Andreeva all in action
In other players to watch, Casper Ruud opens Chatrier against Guilio Zeppieri. While Jabeur plays in between Swiatek and Rune against Oceane Dodin.
