Jelena Ostapenko completed a stunning run to her maiden grand slam title and now the 2017 French Open concludes on Sunday with Rafael Nadal chasing a record 10th Roland Garros title when he faces 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka: French Open 2017 tennis live from Roland Garros until Sunday 11 June!

Stan Wawrinka has never lost a Grand Slam final and Rafael Nadal has never lost a French Open final – but something’s got to give when the two of them face off on Sunday for the Coupe des Mousquetaires.

French Open 2017 tournament schedule

Who is playing the French Open in 2017?

The second Grand Slam of the year welcomes all the best of the tennis world to Roland Garros once more when the 2017 French Open begins on Sunday 28 May.

Having come so close to surmounting the colossal Nadal in his Roland Garros empire in previous years, Novak Djokovic finally conquered the French Open in 2016, but what followed was a bizarre loss of form which ended with him losing his number one ranking to Andy Murray. The battles between the two for the top spot and the sport's biggest prizes were expected to dominate the 2017 season - instead both have struggled during the early stretches, with early defeats at the Australian Open for both, injuries and some surprise losses. Last year's French Open champion and finalist still occupy the top two spots in the rankings: Will they find form on the clay, and will we see Murray and Djokovic storming through the draw in Paris once more?

Then there's Rafael Nadal. His resurgence has played second fiddle to that of Federer in 2017, with Federer suddenly having apparently solved the riddle of how to beat his long-time nemesis, but that all changed when the King of Clay starts getting his feet dirty again. Nadal claimed the Monte-Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open and Madrid Masters titles, putting together a 17-match winning streak before defeat in the Rome quarterfinals. Runner-up at the Australian Open, Rafa has ruled Roland Garros like nobody else has ever managed to and he comes in to this year's major in formidable form. Is it Rafa's title to lose?

Don't forget about 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka, either, who has rounded into form in Geneva just in time for Roland Garros and who leads a chasing pack that includes Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov, established stars still looking for their first Grand Slam title; the brilliant French talents of men's tennis, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Richard Gasquet and Lucas Pouille; and the young guns of men's tennis, Nick Kyrgios, Madrid runner-up Dominic Thiem (the only man to beat Nadal on clay in the run-up to Roland Garros) and Alexander Zverev, the young German who captured a first Masters 1000 Series title in stunning style in Rome.

On the women's side, the 2017 French Open is even less predictable. Ever since Justine Henin's dominant spell of three successive titles between 2005 and 2007, the French Open has thrown up seven different champions in nine years, with Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova being the only two-time winners in that time frame - and neither is playing at this year's event, with Victoria Azarenka also absent. The field is led by Angelique Kerber and Karolina Pliskova, both of whom know how to make Grand Slam finals, but neither woman is particularly comfortable on clay, sos there is opportunity aplenty.

Will it be Simona Halep's moment? The Madrid champion ruled the run-up to Roland Garros, where she was runner-up in 2014, and could be poised to claim a maiden Grand Slam title - but a torn ligament sustained in the Rome final could cast a cloud over Halep's campaign and hand the advantage to the woman who beat Halep in that Rome final, Elina Svitolina, the rising young Ukrainian who is due to meet Halep in the quarterfinals.

And then there's defending champion Garbine Muguruza, who stormed her way to a maiden Grand Slam title in stunning style in 2016 when she defeated Williams in straight sets in the final - but has struggled since. Can the Spanish starlet find her best, unstoppable form in Paris again? She warmed up nicely with a semifinal run in Rome, but faces a tough draw - she opens against former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, out to prove a point in her retirement year, and evergreen veteran Venus Williams, runner-up at the 2017 Australian Open, is in her quarter as well as Kristina Mladenovic, the Madrid and Stuttgart runner-up whose devastating forehand has been wreaking havoc on the WTA Tour in 2017 and who could, buoyed by the crowds, do something spectacular in Paris. 

The stage is set for an unpredictable, thrilling fortnight - don't miss a minute of the action broadcast live from Paris for the second Grand Slam of the year when the 2017 French Open begins on Sunday 28 May.

About the French Open

The second Grand Slam of the year is one of the most gruelling and demanding of the tennis season – if not the most demanding for the men, who must compete in best-of-five set matches for a fortnight on the most endurance-requiring surface in the game.

The French Open – otherwise known as Roland Garros, named after the Stade Roland Garros, where the tournament has been held since 1928 – has a long and complicated history. This has seen the tournament change locations and identities multiple times since its founding in 1891. Before 1925, the tournament was open to members of French tennis clubs only, and named the Championnat de France. Originating as a men's event alone, a women's tournament was added for the first time in 1897 – with doubles tournaments beginning to be added in 1902. 

As the Championnat de France, the event changed both location and surface several times over. Initially, it was contested in Puteaux, and played on sand laid out on rubble. In moving on the the Racing Club of France, Paris, it changed surfaces to clay, and remained as such throughout periods of time spent in Bordeaux and Auteuil (Paris.)

After a couple more venue changes, the tournament finally came to rest at the Roland Garros stadium in 1928 – the year it officially became a Grand Slam tournament.

The tournament's history can be divided up into three stages: Before 1925 (the French club members only event), 1925-1967, and the Open Era - which is 1968 and beyond. It was only at the beginning of the Open Era that the tournament dropped its title of the 'French Championships' and adopted the major title of the French Open.

In the 1925-1967 era, France's own Henry Cochet won the most editions of the French Open, achieving four (1926, 1928, 1930, 1932). Bjorn Borg of the Open Era bested this record with six titles (1974-75, 1978-81), a tally which nobody expected would be broken. Nevertheless, Rafael Nadal – still an active player – has gone above and beyond with his current all-time record of nine Roland Garros trophies (2005-08, 2010-14.) The Spaniard also holds the record for most consecutive titles won with his five from 2010 to 2014. This also translates into an all-time record, as Frank Parker, Jaroslav Drobny, Tony Trabert and Nicola Pietrangeli of the pre-Open Era only scored two consecutive victories each.

Over with the women, the legendary Suzanne Lenglen won the most titles before the Open Era, triumphing six times (1920-23, 1925-26.) Chris Evert's seven title victories hold the record from 1968 onwards (1974-75, 1979-80, 1983, 1985-86.) Lenglen also holds the pre-Open Era record for most consecutive titles – four – and shares that status with fellow Frenchwoman Jeanne Matthey (1909-12.) In the Open Era, Monica Seles (1990-92) and Justine Henin (2005-07) share the status.

In recent years, the reign of Rafael Nadal, which saw him win nine of ten years between 2005 and 2014 (the exception being 2009 when he suffered a shock defeat to Robin Soderling, creating an opening for Roger Federer to finally complete his career Grand Slam), has been ended - or at least suspended - with titles for Stan Wawrinka in 2015 and Novak Djokovic in 2016. On the women's side, recent years have seen Maria Sharapova (2012, 2014) and Serena WIlliams (2013, 2015) ending a string of one-time champions which included Ana Ivanovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Francesca Schiavone and Li Na, while Garbine Muguruza became the first Spanish woman since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1998 to lift the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen when she claimed her maiden Grand Slam title at the 2016 French Open.
