Two major stars from the Women’s game will be missing the 124th French Open however, with reigning champ Ashleigh Barty opting to pull out citing concerns over the coronavirus, while US Open champion Naomi Osaka has been sidelined after suffering a hamstring injury.

The Spaniard’s primary competition is top-ranked Novak Djokovic, the 2016 French Open champion whose only defeat in 2020 was a U.S. Open default for hitting a ball that struck a linesperson in the throat.
Williams bids again to match the overall Grand Slam singles mark of 24 held by Australian Margaret Court. Williams, a three-time French Open champion, lost in the third and fourth round the last two years and is coming off a U.S. Open semifinal exit.
