The tournament this year looks set to be one of the most open in years and we’re looking forward to covering every point from every court, from the first round of qualifying to the finals at Court Philippe Chatrier, while calling on the expertise of some of the sport’s greatest ever champions both on-site and in our local studios to take viewers closer to the action.

“We’re particularly excited to bring Grand Slam tennis to Max for the first time with streaming also available across discovery+ and curated television coverage on Eurosport for viewers across Europe to enjoy. And with the Olympics soon returning to Europe and the world’s best players back at Roland-Garros in their quest for medals in just two months, there is no greater live sports proposition to be found anywhere this summer.”
