French International results 2019: tennis scores, TV program, draw & bracket at Roland Garros
After nearly four months since the Australian Open, the second major tennis tournament of the year has arrived as players hit the clay courts at Roland Garros for the 2019 French Open.
Last year Rafa Nadal – the king of clay – won his 11th all-time title at Roland Garros in men’s singles. Nadal is the 2nd seed in this year’s event behind world No.1 Novak Djokovic, who beat Nadal in this year’s Australian Open final in straight sets. Nadal just won his first title of the year last week, beating Djokovic at the Italian Open.
Sentimental favorite and 20-time Grand Slam singles title winner Roger Federer is in the same half as Nadal. Federer, 37, skipped the 2016 French Open with a back injury and the last two in an attempt to preserve his body.
