After being written off in certain quarters following a fall from grace, Nadal will start as favorite in his attempt to become the first player in the Open Era to win the same Grand Slam 10 times.

While bookmakers have installed Nadal at prohibitive odds to land his 10th Roland Garros trophy, Gilbert believes Agassi has all the qualities to rejuvenate Djokovic. "I'm glad he'll be here in Paris". The French denying a wild card to two-time champion Maria Sharapova also hurts the star power of the field but gives further hope to the players waiting for their breakout, hoping to pull a Francesca Schiavone or Flavia Pennetta to stun the tennis world with a major win. "It's getting better. Tomorrow I have another ultrasound to see if the ligament is still broken or it's fixed".

"For me these days are for preparation, to know how my body is, how I adapt to this tournament". A chronic loss of form, fitness and confidence contributed to that defeat, while previous year he was looking good until a wrist injury forced him to withdraw before a third-round match against Spaniard Marcel Granollers. Vandeweghe, who has struggled in this event, is coming off an Australian Open semifinal appearance and is playing her best clay-court tennis ever (which still isn't great, but it's better).

- Three of the last six Roland Garros winners were ranked number one when they won the tournament, unlike any of the previous nine. Nadal has won his last 14 sets played and has lost just one match since the final of the Miami Masters.

Murray has played a bit too much tennis.

The world number one goes into the French Open with just five wins under his belt since February. 1-5 are all 30 or older, the latest sign that the current crop of stars has enviable staying power.Novak Djokovic has been in a slump for nearly a year (his last Grand Slam title came at the 2016 French Open, when he won his fourth major in a row) so he opted to shake things up.Many players would cite Wimbledon as the toughest to win for that reason alone. But a mixture of poor form, illness and even a lack of motivation mean that Andy Murray starts this season's French Open as the fifth-favourite with some bookmakers.

"I think that Rafa is the big favourite".

He said of eight-time grand slam victor Agassi, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport: "We will be together in Paris". Paire has been bounced in the first round of a grand slam twice since 2014.

Nadal, Djokovic and Dominic Thiem have all been drawn in the other half, but that does not feel especially relevant to Murray just now.

Murray could face risky Juan Martin del Potro in the third round.
