French Open order of play: Tuesday 1 June – Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in action

The French Open order of play just keeps on throwing up great match-ups, and both Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic take centre stage on Tuesday.

Last season’s Roland Garros finalists are the favourites to win the title again, and both have been handed tricky first round opponents.

Nadal gets underway against Alexei Popyrin, while Djokovic will take on Tennys Sandgren in the evening session.

WTA world number one Ashleigh Barty is also in action, with her facing off against Bernarda Pera.

There is a strong French contingent too, and top ten members Matteo Berrettini and Andrey Rublev are also scheduled to play.
