BBC serves up French treat
Tim Henman
It will be Henman's first Grand Slam without a coach.
BBC Sport will be covering the French Open on Television and Radio. There will be extensive coverage by Sport Online.

The Roland Garros tournament from 30 May to 10 June is one of the highlights of the tennis season.

All the world's top players will be there to slug it out on the gruelling Parisian clay.

British stars Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski will also be in action and will be hoping for more success than in previous years.

Their record on clay this season does not offer much reason for hope but you can follow their progress through Iain Carter's regular updates on Radio Five Live 909&693 MW.

Sport Online will be offering you all the latest news, views and match reports as they happen at Roland Garros.

And when it gets to the business end of the tournament, BBC TV will also be there.

Live commentary

Grandstand and Sunday Grandstand have action at the midway point of the tournament on 2 and 3 June.

There will be coverage of the men's and women's singles final on BBC TV on 9 June on Grandstand and 10 June in Sunday Grandstand.

Radio Five Live will also provide live commentary during finals weekend in Sport on Five.

Last year, Gustavo Kuerten won the men's singles and many believe that he will retain his title this year.

But he will have to see off the challenge of a host of other contenders, including Andre Agassi, who won the first Grand Slam event of the season in Australia.

Women's champion Mary Pierce has had a poor year since winning the title last year.

There will be many hoping to snatch her crown, including Martina Hingis, who has never won the event.
