Singles draw has been made for the second Grand Slam event of the season, the Roland Garros, taking place in Paris, from May 22 to June 5.

The first round matches will be played during the first three days of the competition.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic is a top seed and will open his 2022 French Open campaign against world no.94 Yoshihito Nishioka (JPN, H2H 2-0) on Monday.

Djokovic might face Alex Molcan (SVK) or Federico Coria (ARG) in round two.

Novak’s potential opponents in the later stages of the tournament are:

3rd round: Jenson Brooksby (USA, 31), Pablo Cuevas (ARG)
4th round: Diego Schwartzman (ARG, 15), Grigor Dimitrov (BUL, 18)
Quarter-finals: Rafael Nadal (ESP, 5), Felix Auger-Aliassime (CAN, 9), Fabio Fognini (ITA)
Semi-finals: Alexander Zverev (GER, 3), Carlos Alcaraz (ESP, 6), Karen Khachanov (RUS, 21)

Finals: Daniil Medvedev (RUS, 2), Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE, 4), Andrey Rublev (RUS, 7), Casper Ruud (NOR, 8)

It will be Novak’s 18th appearance on Parisian clay (81-15 record). Last year he rallied from two sets down to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final 6-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 and lifted his second Coupe des Mousquetaires.
