Follow the draw as it happens
The draw is always a pivotal event in the tournament, enabling fans and players alike to work out possible permutations for the second week as well as inevitably throwing up some mouth-watering ties as early as the first round. Reigning champions Rafael Nadal and Francesca Schiavone (depending on how far she progresses at the tournament in Brussels this week), will be the ones pulling the numbers out of the hat.
As is traditional, it will be ladies first with the women's singles draw getting things under way. The non-seeded players will first be allocated their slots electronically, before Nadal draws out the 32 seeds to be added. The men's singles draw will then follow, using the same method, and you can keep abreast of all the action on the Roland Garros Twitter accounts.
