Where is the French Open 2021 being held?

Last year, the retractable roof Court Philippe Chatrier was officially unveiled, meaning that play can continue late into the night, if needed.

Which British players are competing in the French Open 2021?

In the men’s singles draw Britain boast two of the most in-form players on tour this year. British No.1 Dan Evans comes in having won his first ATP title in Australia this year and having defeated World No.1 Novak Djokovic on the clay in Monte-Carlo.

Cam Norrie will be a player to watch in this year’s French Open. Having reached two finals on the clay and ranking third in total wins on tour this year, the Brit is set to make his mark in Paris.

Meanwhile in the women’s singles, World No.20 Johanna Konta leads the line for the Brits at Roland Garros. The 2019 semi-finalist will be looking to bounce back to her best and mount a serious challenge. Joining her will be British No.2 Heather Watson off the back of Great Britain's Billie Jean King Cup win over Mexico last month.

Once again the Brits will showcase a strong line-up of doubles stars, including Australian Open finalist Joe Salisbury who once again partners Rajeev Ram for a shot at their second Grand Slam. Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares return to Paris for the first time as a pairing since 2018, with the Brazilian having lost in the final last year.

Brothers Neal Skupski and Ken Skupski will be going in search of a second title of the season, while Dom Inglot and Luke Bambridge come in off the back of an impressive run in Belgrade this week. Jonny O’Mara once again teams up with Cam Norrie, with the Brits hoping they can cause an upset on the clay.

In the junior draws, Matilda Mutadvdzic will represent Britain in the girl’s singles, while Lui Maxted and Jack Pinnington Jones join the boy’s draw.

Reigning champion Alfie Hewett heads back to the French capital with his eyes on the singles title, but will have to keep off fellow Brit Gordon Reid to have a chance of retaining his trophy. Hewett and Reid will once again join forces to defend their doubles title.

Jordanne Whiley is set to compete in both the women’s wheelchair singles and doubles, while Andy Lapthorne will represent Great Britain in the quad events.
