The match is widely considered the decisive match of the tournament, but Djokovic’s dominance could be a factor in the final result.

The 2017 French Open begins with a star-studded opening ceremony, the first of its kind to take place in the United States. The event will be played in three arenas throughout Paris, three of which have been modified from previous years. The Centre Court stadium seats 16,000 fans, with new seating and a retractable roof. The Roland Garros Court seats a record 18,000, with a retractable roof and a capacity of 20,000.

Stan Wawrinka has reached a career grand slam without getting a second-round bye at his first appearance since reaching the final at Wimbledon in 2011. In doing so, he becomes the only player in the Open era to have never received a second-round bye, according to the ATP and WTA Tours’ ranking databases.
