The 125th edition of Roland Garros begins in Paris this Sunday, with every match from every court of the year’s second Grand Slam tournament streaming ad-free, live and on demand on Stan Sport.

Stan Sport’s live streaming coverage begins from 6.50PM AEST on Sunday night, with select matches from the tournament also broadcast on 9Gem and Channel Nine.

Australia will be eagerly watching as world No. 1, Ash Barty, returns to Roland Garros for the first time since winning in 2019. Following a strong performance at the Australian Open and a great season on clay, Barty is after her second Grand Slam title.

Calling the action will be Roz Kelly, Todd Woodbridge, Sam Groth, Jelena Dokic, Brett Phillips and Clint Stanaway.

Second-highest ranked female Aussie, Ajla Tomljanović, will be joined by Astra Sharma, a wildcard entry, in her third consecutive year at Roland Garros.

The hallowed outdoor clay courts of Roland Garros will also see the long-awaited return of Roger Federer, hoping to deny defending champion Rafael Nadal from securing his 14th French Grand Slam title. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will also be looking to dethrone Nadal at this year’s tournament.

Serena Williams is set to play after a three-month hiatus since the Australian Open. The 23-time Grand Slam and three-time Roland Garros champion will continue her quest for a 24th major title.

The Australian men will be out in force, headed by Alex de Minaur and John Millman, both of whom are ranked in the world’s Top 50.

The youngest Aussie in the draw, 21-year-old Alexei Popyrin (No. 62), is coming off a fine performance at the Australian Open where he upset world No. 13 David Goffin in the first round.

Jordan Thompson and James Duckworth round out Australia’s men’s contingent, joined by wildcard entry Chris O’Connell.

Stan Sport’s live streaming coverage of the Roland Garros tournament begins from 6.50PM AEST this Sunday, with every match from every court streaming ad-free, live and on demand.

Stan’s add-on sport package is available for $10 a month and consumers can subscribe now to get a free trial. Subscribing is as simple as visiting: Stan.com.au/sport

Every match from every court of the Roland Garros tournament will stream ad-free, live and on demand on Stan Sport.
