The French Open returns to its spring spot on the calendar. Once again, Rafael Nadal is the leading storyline, going for his 14th Coupe des Mousquetaires at Roland Garros and to break the record for most men’s Grand Slam singles titles. Keep reading this article for Roland Garros live stream, TV coverage info, schedule, and more.

Tournament preview:

The usual suspects and some bright new faces dazzled at last year’s French Open, so expectations at Stade Roland Garros are sky-high this fortnight.

This year’s French Open gets underway with two of the greatest ever tennis players under pressure: Roger Federer having skipped the past three majors through injury, and Serena Williams looking for her first grand slam title since 2017.

Clay specialist Rafael Nadal won every set en route to equalling Federer’s record of 20 grand slam singles titles here last year, but Iga Swiatek stole the show. The Polish youngster came out of nowhere to secure the Suzanne-Lenglen Cup – also without dropping a set – thrashing Simona Halep and Sofia Kenin along the way.

Men’s world No. 1 Novak Djokovic has only won one French Open but always looks tip-top, and he started this season in typically menacing fashion by winning February’s Australian Open.

Naomi Osaka missed last year’s French Open through injury but looked unstoppable at the US and Australian Opens. However, it’s Ashleigh Barty who enters as the top seed, in her first grand slam tournament appearance outside Australia since the 2019 US Open.

How to Live Stream Roland Garros Tennis 2021?

The Roland Garros live stream is available via ESPN Plus. The Parisian Grand Slam has also signed several new broadcast agreements, with Australia, Brazil, and the USA to the fore.

Australia: One of Australia’s largest media groups, Channel Nine is, as of this year, an exclusive Roland-Garros broadcaster. It will provide extensive coverage of the tournament through its free-to-view channels Channel Nine, 9Go, and 9GEM, its on-demand service 9Now, and its OTT platform Stan. Channel Nine now broadcasts three Grand Slam tournaments: the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and Roland-Garros.

Brazil: The FFT has also strengthened its ties with Brazil by signing agreements with Globo and BandSports. BandSports, which has broadcast the tournament since 2013, will once again be showing it this year. Meanwhile, Globo, Brazil’s leading TV network – covering nearly 2,000 sporting events a year – will show matches from Roland-Garros on SporTV, the country’s leading pay channel.
