Last year, as in 2021, the French record was disastrous after the 2nd round, with not a single Frenchman making it through. This year, Chloé Paquet left us in the 3rd round, but Corentin Moutet and Varvara Gracheva remain our last hopes!

After the qualifying rounds of the Roland Garros tournament came to an end, we had several dozen French players ready to go after the yellow ball, in a bid to reach the final table. But as usual, as the rounds progressed, France lost almost all its players, leaving little hope for the third round! After disastrous results in 2021 and 2023, France had already done better, with three survivors: Corentin Moutet, Chloé Paquet and Varvara Gracheva.

By the time they reach the last eight, only two remain, which is quite a feat in itself! Will they go all the way to the quarter-finals?

It's the most eagerly awaited tennis event of the year: Roland-Garros returns to Paris! After a week of qualifying, it's time for the final draw, with the semi-finals. Here's today's match schedule! [Read more]

More than 40 years after Yannick Noah was crowned the last Frenchman to win the French Open, it's still hard to imagine a Blue succeeding him on home soil, despite being the most represented nation. This year, we can still support Corentin Moutet, who is reaching this stage of the competition for the first time and will have to outdo himself against Jannik Sinner, world No.2, as well as Varvara Gracheva, who is playing her first Roland-Garros as a Frenchwoman, having been naturalized.

Fingers crossed!
