Who is playing the French Open in 2017?

The second Grand Slam of the year welcomes all the best of the tennis world to Roland Garros once more when the 2017 French Open begins on Sunday 28 May.

Having come so close to surmounting the colossal Nadal in his Roland Garros empire in previous years, Novak Djokovic finally conquered the French Open in 2016, but what followed was a bizarre loss of form which ended with him losing his number one ranking to Andy Murray. The battles between the two for the top spot and the sport's biggest prizes were expected to dominate the 2017 season - instead both have struggled during the early stretches, with early defeats at the Australian Open for both, injuries and some surprise losses. Last year's French Open champion and finalist still occupy the top two spots in the rankings: Will they find form on the clay, and will we see Murray and Djokovic storming through the draw in Paris once more?

With Djokovic and Murray struggling in early 2017, there was a void to be filled and into it, like a phoenix from the ashes of his six-month injury lay-off from competition, rises Roger Federer. Champion at the Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami, 35-year-old Federer is sensibly saving himself for grass by not playing any warm-up events before Roland Garros - but the 2009 French Open winner is still one of the greatest clay-courters of all time. With the way he's been turning back the clock in 2017, is anybody prepared to absolutely bet that Federer won't win another seemingly impossible major title?

Then there's Rafael Nadal. His resurgence has played second fiddle to that of Federer in 2017, with Federer suddenly having apparently solved the riddle of how to beat his long-time nemesis, but that could all change when the King of Clay starts getting his feet dirty again. Runner-up at the Australian Open, Rafa has ruled Roland Garros like nobody else has ever managed to and he could claim an amazing tenth title in 2017.

Then there's 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka, indubitably the best of the rest, heading up a chasing pack that includes those established stars still looking for their first Slam title, like Kei NishikoriMilos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov; the French talents of Jo-Wilfried TsongaGael MonfilsRichard Gasquet and Lucas Pouille; and the young guns of men's tennis, Nick KyrgiosAlexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem.

On the women's side, the 2017 French Open is even less predictable. Ever since Justine Henin's dominant spell of three successive titles between 2005 and 2007, the French Open has thrown up seven different champions in nine years, with Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova being the only two-time winners in that time frame.

We know Serena will be back at the French Open in 2017, with her sights set on tying Margaret Court's all-time Grand Slam record of 24 titles after becoming the greatest Open Era player of all time at the Australian Open back in January - but Serena has barely played since, thanks to a troublesome knee. Will she be fit - and match-tough - by the time Roland Garros begins?

Sharapova, on the other hand, should be raring to go after returning from her 18-month doping ban, but with the FFT refusing to commit themselves to giving her a wildcard, the 2012 and 2014 French Open champion will have to work extremely hard just to get into the tournament.

And then there's defending champion Garbine Muguruza, who stormed her way to a maiden Grand Slam title in stunning style in 2016 when she defeated Williams in straight sets in the final - but has struggled since. Can the Spanish starlet find her best, unstoppable form in Paris again?

World no. 1 Angelique Kerber, the two-time Grand Slam champion in 2016, will also be eyeing the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen, and there's an eclectic mix of other contenders, from legend-in-her-own-lifetime and 2017 Australian Open runner-up Venus Williams to former runner-up Simona Halep, the resurgent Caroline Wozniacki to the powerful youngsters led by Karolina Pliskova and Madison Keys.
Every great star of the present, golden age in men's and women's tennis returns to Paris for the second Grand Slam of the year when the 2017 French Open begins on Sunday 28 May.

About the French Open

The second Grand Slam of the year is one of the most gruelling and demanding of the tennis season – if not the most demanding for the men, who must compete in best-of-five set matches for a fortnight on the most endurance-requiring surface in the game.

The French Open – otherwise known as Roland Garros, named after the Stade Roland Garros, where the tournament has been held since 1928 – has a long and complicated history. This has seen the tournament change locations and identities multiple times since its founding in 1891. Before 1925, the tournament was open to members of French tennis clubs only, and named the Championnat de France. Originating as a men's event alone, a women's tournament was added for the first time in 1897 – with doubles tournaments beginning to be added in 1902. 

As the Championnat de France, the event changed both location and surface several times over. Initially, it was contested in Puteaux, and played on sand laid out on rubble. In moving on the the Racing Club of France, Paris, it changed surfaces to clay, and remained as such throughout periods of time spent in Bordeaux and Auteuil (Paris.)

After a couple more venue changes, the tournament finally came to rest at the Roland Garros stadium in 1928 – the year it officially became a Grand Slam tournament.

The tournament's history can be divided up into three stages: Before 1925 (the French club members only event), 1925-1967, and the Open Era - which is 1968 and beyond. It was only at the beginning of the Open Era that the tournament dropped its title of the 'French Championships' and adopted the major title of the French Open.

In the 1925-1967 era, France's own Henry Cochet won the most editions of the French Open, achieving four (1926, 1928, 1930, 1932). Bjorn Borg of the Open Era bested this record with six titles (1974-75, 1978-81), a tally which nobody expected would be broken. Nevertheless, Rafael Nadal – still an active player – has gone above and beyond with his current all-time record of nine Roland Garros trophies (2005-08, 2010-14.) The Spaniard also holds the record for most consecutive titles won with his five from 2010 to 2014. This also translates into an all-time record, as Frank Parker, Jaroslav Drobny, Tony Trabert and Nicola Pietrangeli of the pre-Open Era only scored two consecutive victories each.

Over with the women, the legendary Suzanne Lenglen won the most titles before the Open Era, triumphing six times (1920-23, 1925-26.) Chris Evert's seven title victories hold the record from 1968 onwards (1974-75, 1979-80, 1983, 1985-86.) Lenglen also holds the pre-Open Era record for most consecutive titles – four – and shares that status with fellow Frenchwoman Jeanne Matthey (1909-12.) In the Open Era, Monica Seles (1990-92) and Justine Henin (2005-07) share the status.

In recent years, the reign of Rafael Nadal, which saw him win nine of ten years between 2005 and 2014 (the exception being 2009 when he suffered a shock defeat to Robin Soderling, creating an opening for Roger Federer to finally complete his career Grand Slam), has been ended - or at least suspended - with titles for Stan Wawrinka in 2015 and Novak Djokovic in 2016. On the women's side, recent years have seen Maria Sharapova (2012, 2014) and Serena WIlliams (2013, 2015) ending a string of one-time champions which included Ana Ivanovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Francesca Schiavone and Li Na, while Garbine Muguruza became the first Spanish woman since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1998 to lift the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen when she claimed her maiden Grand Slam title at the 2016 French Open.
