The 2024 Roland Garros will get international coverage, with the tournament recently announcing the list of major broadcasters.

The second Grand Slam of the season will be played in Paris and exclusively on clay from May 26th to June 9th. The tournament will be televised in more than 150 countries worldwide.

Some pundits expect the men's tournament to be the most open for years, given the lack of clarity on the main favorites. However, in the women's tournament, defending champion Iga Swiatek will be the woman to beat.

On that note, let us break down all the relevant information regarding the 2024 French Open, including the tournament schedule, entry list, prize money, and list of broadcasters.

The Roland Garros qualifying tournament will begin on Monday, May 20th, and run through Friday, May 24th. A total of 16 men and women will navigate three rounds during the week to reach the main draw.

Official main draw play will begin on Sunday, May 26th, with first-round action and run until Sunday, June 9th, when the men's singles final will be held.

Who Is Playing The 2024 Roland Garos?

As the draw ceremony is fast approaching, significant withdrawals could occur in the men's entry list. 14-time record champion Rafael Nadal has not revealed his decision on whether to play.

Second seed Jannik Sinner recently returned to practice after recovering from a hip injury. Third-seed and tournament favorite Carlos Alcaraz has also hit the practice courts in Spain ahead of his long-anticipated comeback.

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic seeks additional court time in Geneva before traveling to Paris. He is the defending champion and the tournament's top seed. Djokovic could win a fourth career Grand Slam.
