The 2022 French Open will burst into life next month as tennis’ top stars take to the hard courts of Roland Garros eyeing major glory.
Novak Djokovic has been cleared to defend his title after the country announced they will relax their vaccine passport rules last month.
The Serbian, who has opted against getting vaccinated for coronavirus, was prevented from competing in the Australian Open in January because of their COVID-19 rules.
But now Djokovic can compete in the second Grand Slam of the year as he looks to equal Rafael Nadal’s all-time record of 21 major titles.
Nadal has won at Roland Garros a staggering 13 times, however, the Spaniard did lose in last year’s semi-finals to the World number 1.

French Open 2022: What has been said?
Serena Williams is targeting a return to tennis in Roland Garros as she continues to hunt down Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slams.
The 23-time champion told CNN: “I should have been at like 30 or 32 (grand slam singles titles).”
“I should have had it (the record), really, I’ve had many opportunities to have it. But I’m not giving up.”
On the French Open, Williams added: “Paris is one of my favorite cities, and I actually love the clay. So we’ll see what happens.
“Hopefully if my body is holding up, then I’ll definitely be there.”
