Roland-Garros 2022: discover the entry lists
Discover the list of entrants in the 2022 Roland-Garros tournament, which will take place from 16th May to 5th June.
Of the 104 players entered in the women’s draw, four have a protected ranking after time off due to injury (or pregnancy) and are therefore guaranteed a place in the draw. They include American player Sofia Kenin, who was runner-up in 2020 and is now world No.148. Her countrywoman Taylor Townsend is also expected at the Porte d’Auteuil. The winner of the US Open in 2019, Bianca Andreescu, will also be in the running. Finally, Tatjana Maria, who gave birth to her second child in April 2021 and has just clinched the second title of her career by winning the WTA250 in Bogota last week, also benefits from a protected ranking, meaning she goes straight into the draw.
In the men’s, Aljaz Bedene, Borna Coric, Jérémy Chardy, Stan Wawrinka and Attila Balazs are also using their protected ranking to enter the main draw. First on the waiting list, France’s Quentin Halys has a good chance of being awarded a place in the main draw if any other players drop out, after the official withdrawals of Kei Nishikori and Roger Federer.
