French Open live stream: How to watch Roland Garros 2022 online and on TV
The French Open is back with the second Grand Slam of the season.
The French Open airs live on NBC Sports, Peacock Premium and Tennis Channel through championships points at Roland Garros in Paris.
NBC and Peacock air live coverage on Memorial Day weekend, then the women’s and men’s singles semifinals and finals next week.
Rafael Nadal, a record 13-time French Open champion, did not enter as the clear men’s favorite after not winning a clay-court lead-up tournament for the first time since 2015, not including the pandemic-shortened 2020 year. The 35-year-old has also dealt with persistent foot pain.
The men’s singles is wide open with Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and the Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz all hotly-tipped, though Stefanos Tsitsipas has enjoyed a kind draw, which boosts his chances.
In the women’s singles, look no further than Iga Swiatek, who is on a fine run of form and looks well-placed to add a second French Open crownd after triumphing in 2020.
Follow live updates from the French Open as round one continues on the third day of play at Roland Garros. Daniil Medvedev has opened his campaign with a comfortable victory against Facundo Bagnis, who looked to be struggling with a calf injury. The US Open champion and Australian Open finalist has the chance to regain his spot at World No 1 if he advances further than Novak Djokovic in Paris, and now has his first victory since returning from hernia surgery.
Later on, last year’s French Open finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas should face a tougher first-round match against 20-year-old Italian Lorenzo Musetti, while Paula Badosa, Aryna Sabalenka and Simona Halep star on the women’s side of the draw. Home favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will also look to upset the No 8 seed Casper Ruud on what is set to be his final appearance at the French Open.

Roland Garros is the center of the tennis world in late May and early June, with the action beginning early on Sunday morning. The 2022 French Open features intriguing draws on both the men's and women's side, with an unclear structure at the top of the men's game. No such dynamic exists for the women's draw, with No. 1 ranked Iga Swiatek operating as the clear betting favorite. She enters on a 28-match winning streak, leaving some of the game's best players in an unfamiliar position as big tournament underdogs.
At Caesars Sportsbook, Swiatek is listed at -120 (risk $120 to win $100) to win the tournament, underscoring her perceived dominance. 2018 French Open winner Simona Halep is next at +900 to claim the title. She is followed by Paula Badosa and Ons Jabeur at +1400, with Maria Sakkari entering at +1600 in the latest French Open 2022 odds. Before making any 2022 French Open picks, be sure to check out the latest tennis predictions from SportsLine's Gavin Mair.
Mair is the international women's tennis expert who called unseeded Jelena Ostapenko (80-1) winning the 2017 French Open, Osaka (32-1) winning the 2018 U.S. Open, Bianca Andreescu (20-1) winning the 2019 U.S. Open, plus many other prescient calls. He also correctly backed Barbora Krejcikova in the 2021 French Open final.
Now, Mair has broken down the latest 2022 French Open women's odds from Caesars and released his coveted best bets. He's sharing all of his expert tennis picks and analysis at SportsLine.
One of Mair's surprising 2022 French Open picks is that he likes the value of Bianca Andreescu at 20-1. Andreescu showed flashes at the Italian Open earlier this month, ultimately losing to top-ranked Iga Swiatek in a way that many others have. Still, she has shown improvement in each match since returning to top-tier tennis action in Stuttgart earlier this year, and Andreescu owns a recent straight-set win over a top-10 player in Danielle Collins.
From there, Andreescu has pedigree as the 2019 U.S. Open champion, and she won that event in her first appearance, toppling Serena Williams in the final. Andreescu is extremely versatile and multi-talented and, even without lofty height, she covers ground quite well and has the ability to produce powerful strokes that keep her opponents on their heels. Andreescu is also well-rested and healthy after a recent break, and according to her public comments, she appears to be refreshed and reinvigorated in advance of the 2022 French Open.
The first round round matchups are set as the men's and women's singles draws for the French Open were announced on Thursday. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz are all on the same side of the bracket. If things work out as expected, the top seed and defending champion Djokovic could face Nadal in the quarterfinal round. This would be a good opportunity for Nadal -- a 13-time French Open champion -- to make Djokovic pay for defeating him in last year's semifinals.
Mair has locked in his best bets, and they include a 35-1 long shot who would bring huge returns. Mair says this long shot has "an incredible character and winning mindset." You can only find out who it is, and see the rest of Mair's picks and analysis at SportsLine.
So who wins the French Open 2022? And which long shots could take the crown? Visit SportsLine now to see Gavin Mair's bets for the 2022 French Open, all from the tennis expert who has called long shot winners of three grand slam women's titles since 2017, and find out
