The French Open is underway, with the world’s best players taking centre stage in the second Grand Slam of the year.

Tennis’s biggest stars, including Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams, will all be competing on the clay courts of Paris during the next fortnight in what promises to be an exciting event.

Away from the matches, controversy is already threatening to boil to the surface amid Naomi Osaka’s press conference boycott.

The world No. 2 has been warned she could be booted out of the tournament, should she not reconsider her stance.

On the court, the Japanese star will do well to win the title. She has never been beyond the third round and faces stiff competition from the likes of Ash Barty and Iga Swiatek.
