French Open order of play and schedule
The French Open gets underway on Sunday with Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka facing Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk in could be a heated first match of the tournament on Court Philippe-Chatrier.
Kostyuk refuses to shake hands with players from Russia and Belarus and believes players from the two countries should have been made to condemn their nations following the invasion of her home country Ukraine.
Sabalenka, the Australian Open champion and world No 2, said she will begin her quest for a second grand slam title against a player who “hates her”.
