French Open 2016’s clay courts are all ready for the highly anticipated second leg of the Grand Slam tour.

The competing players have already taken their draws last Friday, May 20. Andy Murray, fresh from his first Rome Masters win, has a chance to battle it out with Novak Djokovic, if both parties win their respective scheduled plays.

Djokovic is a must-watch athlete as he tries again for his first Roland Garros title. The French Open may have Roger Federer backing out to fully recover but at least they have a reformed Rafael Nadal seeking his place at the top.

Serena Williams, World No 1, seeks to defend her title while Simona Halep gets first serve at the French Open.
