Britain’s Emma Raducanu and Polish professional Iga Swiatek will each face qualifiers in their first-round matches at the 2022 French Open.
19-year-old US Open champion, Emma Raducanu, who is seeded 12th at Roland Garros, will then take on either Aliaksandra Sasnovich or Wang Xinyu in the second round if she can progress through her opening challenge in Paris.
20-year-old Iga Swiatek, who has won her past five tournaments in a row and is favourite for a second French Open triumph, could face Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals if she continues her sensational current form as she looks to take back the title she won in 2020 in hugely impressive fashion.
Recall that Naomi Osaka was handed a very challenging opening encounter with the in-form Amanda Anisimova, who beat the Japanese star in the third round of the Australian Open earlier this year.
As for former champion Simona Halep, who is now working with Serena Williams’ coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, the Romanian could take on Swiatek in a mouthwatering fourth-round clash.
The French Open begins on Sunday.
