The French Open tennis championship is held every year in Paris, organized by the country's tennis association. Roland Garros (this is the more well-known name of the event) is one of the Grand Slam tournaments, it is on the list of the most prestigious and grandiose international competitions.

Matches can be watched both from the stands of the courts and live on a huge screen installed in Paris on the square in front of the City Hall. The screening is free, and there are not many seats in front of the screen, so the audience lands anywhere: on benches, fences, platforms and on the ground. Dates: 05/30/2021 - 06/13/2021

In total, five titles will be played on the courts of the Roland Garros tennis center:

  • men's singles;
  • women's singles;
  • men's doubles;
  • women's doubles;
  • mixed doubles.

Singles are the most popular among fans. In the men's part of the tournament, the most titled participant in the tournament is Rafael Nadal, who already has 11 titles in the French Grand Slam. In women's tennis, everything is less predictable: over the past five years, not a single tennis player has managed to become the champion of the French Open twice. Who will win Roland Garros 2022? Should we expect sensations? Will any of the favorites disappoint? Let's try to figure it out!

2022 French Open schedule

Roland Garros 2022 qualification matches will begin on May 10 and will be held in three rounds. The main tournament starts on May 16 and will last for two weeks. The women's final will take place on June 4, while the men will face each other in the main match on June 5. On the way to the title, the future champion will have to overcome seven rounds.

2022 French Open favorites for men

The most titled tennis player in Roland Garros is Rafael Nadal, who has already won 13 titles in France. In Nadal's 16-year history at the French Open, he has suffered only three defeats: in 2009, a surprise victory was won by Swede Robin Soderling, and in 2015 and 2021, Nadal was knocked out by Novak Djokovic. Since 2005, there has only been another champion four times: in 2009, in the final, Roger Federer beat the same Robin Soderling, in 2015, Stanislas Wawrinka defeated Novak Djokovic, and a year later, Djokovic himself turned out to be stronger than Andy Murray. And in 2021, Djokovic was able to put the squeeze on Stefanos Tsitsipas, losing the first two sets.

Of course, the main favorite after Rafael Nadal is the only person among the current athletes who managed to beat the Spaniard twice on the courts of Roland Garros. Novak Djokovic was able to overcome the most difficult segment of his career, during which he was worried about an elbow injury. Starting in 2018, the Serb did not just begin to resemble his former self and even established himself as the best tennis player in the world, taking eight Grand Slams in less than four years.

Other contenders for high places include primarily Stefanos Tsitsipas, who last season made very serious progress in the game on clay and even reached the final of last year's Slam in Paris. A month before Roland Garros, the Greek almost stopped Nadal in Barcelona, ​​losing in a dramatic game in three games.

In addition to the Greek, it is worth noting Dominic Thiem, the winner of the US Open-2020 and the finalist of Roland Garros-2019, who fell under the hand of Rafa. Although last year the Austrian performed more successfully on hard. In the last two draws of this tournament, Diego Schwartzman announced himself, having lost twice to Nadal in the later stages. The last time the Argentine was able to take the game from the titled Spaniard.

Alexander Zverev is increasingly reaching the later stages of big tournaments, including Roland Garros. So last year he almost reached the final, losing to his direct competitor Stefanos Tsitsipas in five games. It seems that NextGen is on the heels of the Djokovic-Nadal-Federer trio.

Tennis, unlike all team sports, is very subject to unpredictability. The result of the meeting does not depend on the whole team of players, where the result is the sum of the actions of all the elements of the team, but on one athlete, who at any moment can get injured or an ordinary illness, which will lead to his defeat.

French Open 2022 Women's Favorites

The women's part of the Roland Garros tournament is famous for its unpredictability. So last year, the unseeded Czech tennis player Barbora Kreychikova became the winner of the French Open, defeating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final - 6:1, 2:6, 6:4.

As for the world elite, even the legendary Serena Williams won only three titles in France, while she has seven trophies in Australia and the UK, and six in the USA. The main favorites for the 2022 French Open are the winners of 2018 and 2019, Romanian tennis player Simona Halep and Australian Ashleigh Barty, who won Wimbledon last season.

Serena Williams cannot be discounted, who in the very first season after returning to big-time sports was able to reach the final of the US Open. There is every reason to believe that in the upcoming season she will be able to return to her former unstoppable level and compete with her young rivals.

Novak Djokovic to miss French Open 2022? ATP sets a marker and informs players about mandatory vaccinations for Roland Garros

Novak Djokovic was unable to defend his title at the Australian Open in Melbourne as he was sent home. The Serb's visa was canceled twice and his second appeal was rejected. The 34-year-old athlete is not vaccinated, so he even risks competing at the 2022 French Open.

Now the ATP, the leading organization in men's tennis, has set a marker and informed players that they need to be vaccinated to participate in Roland Garros, which will take place in May-June. An email sent to ATP players reported that the subject of the email read: "IMPORTANT: Vaccination requirements in France."

The statement adds that in order to compete in the 2022 French Open, players must be vaccinated and only a medical exception due to an adverse reaction to the vaccine can be considered. However, the final requirements will soon be available to all players.

French Open 2022 requires vaccination against COVID-19

It was thought that the French Open could be the only Grand Slam where Novak Djokovic could compete without being vaccinated. However, according to the latest letter from the ATP, the Serb must get the jab if he is going to compete in Paris.

“The French Tennis Federation has informed us that the French government will soon pass a law banning unvaccinated athletes from participating in any sporting events. The law is awaiting final adoption, but is likely to come into force in the coming days." read the letter.

The letter also added that the rules are expected to be in place indefinitely and further clarification is pending. French tennis hopes to avoid the confusion created by Tennis Australia, the Australian government and the Victorian government's bad communication that led to the Novak Djokovic visa fiasco.

According to World Health Organization, as of today, March 26, 2020, the UK reported 8.077 coronavirus cases and 422 deaths while across the globe, the number of confirmed cases tops 458,662 cases with over 20.801 deaths.  


Among those people who have been tested positive is Queen Elizabeth II's son and the heir to the British throne – Price Charles.


Prince Charles, who is 71, said to only have mild symptoms and is otherwise in good health, Clearance House said in a statement. At the moment of writing, no one knows how he got the virus or if he was in contact recently with Queen Elizabeth II. The most likely version is that he caught the virus because of this recent busy schedule of public event.


Both Charles and Camilla are now self-isolating at Balmoral.


As the Queen is reported to meet with her son last time on the 12th of March, appropriate actions have been taken to make sure that the Queen is in good health, the Buckingham Palace said. She now appears to be “in good health”.


The coronavirus incubation period is usually around five to seven days, with a maximum number of days close to 12. According to a royal source, Prince Charles started showing symptoms last weekend, which means that potentially, he could have been exposed before he saw the Queen on the 12th of March.


According to a source close to CNN, he was tested on Monday and received the results on Tuesday.


While trying to receive an official statement from Price Charles office, they said: "It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks,"


Following his last public event where he attended along with the Queen, Prince Charles has had a number of private meetings with many individuals, all of whom have been made aware of the situation.


Now, everyone will focus their attention on the Queen – as she is in her mid-90s, it is know that people at that age are more vulnerable against Coronavirus. Until the moment of writing the article, it is not known if she has been tested.


However, as a precaution, the palace said the Queen was canceling public events and was moving from the Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle beyond the Easter period, sources say.

Bitcoin has grown by more than 7% and is trading at over $ 15,000, the highest level in three years, as interest in cryptocurrencies rises and the US dollar declines, CNN reports.


The value of a bitcoin has doubled in 2020. Earnings have been dramatic in recent weeks, with bitcoin rising 40% since early October.


If electronic money continues to grow, it may not be long before it reaches an all-time low of just under $ 20,000 in December 2017.


In addition to the weakening dollar, Bitcoin has benefited from the support of several companies, such as PayPal and Square, which accept cryptocurrencies as viable payment and investment options.


Bitcoin, along with gold, can become attractive to investors who want to take advantage of the continuing weakness of the dollar. Gold prices, which hit a record $ 2,000 an ounce earlier this year, are set to rise by about 30% in 2020.


The growth of bitcoin this year is all the more remarkable given that it had fallen below $ 5,000 in mid-March.
