On May 12th, the tournament Management released the list of wild cards for the men and women's singles at the 2005 French Open. The eighth and final wild card for the men's tournament will be given out at a later date.
The men's wild cards were awarded to the French players Thierry Ascione, Julien Benneteau, Arnaud Clément, Gaël Monfils, Florent Serra and Gilles Simon, as well as to the Australian Peter Luczak (as a result of an agreement with the Australian Tennis Federation, a wild card is granted in both the men and women's singles to an Australian player).
In the women's singles, the wild cards have been awarded to the French players Maïlyne Andrieux, Alizé Cornet, Youlia Fedossova, Mathilde Johansson, Pauline Parmentier, Camille Pin and Aravane Rezai. Like Luczak, her fellow-Australian, Sophie Ferguson benefited from the agreement between the Australian and French federations.
