24 May 2023 - Grand Slam tennis is back on Stan Sport, with the greatest players in the world descending on Paris for the 2023 Roland-Garros tournament, the 127th iteration of the prestigious French Open event, commencing this Sunday night from 7:00pm AEST on the home of Grand Slam tennis, Stan Sport.

The great Novak Djokovic (world no.3) will be gunning for his record 23rd Grand Slam title, which would pull him away from Rafael Nadal (world no.15) with whom he is currently tied, but another Spanish superstar in the form of 20-year-old world number one Carlos Alcaraz will be hunting Grand Slam glory, after missing out on the Australian Open through injury. Daniil Medvedev (world no.2) will also be hoping to spoil the party and claim his second Grand Slam trophy.

Polish women's world no.1 Iga Świątek returns to defend her crown, having won Roland-Garros in 2020 and 2022. She will face a stern test from rising Belarusian star Aryna Sabalenka (world no.2), fresh off her 2023 Australian Open victory, and gritty American Jessica Pegula (world no.3).

The Australian contingent will be spearheaded by 'The Demon' Alex De Minaur (world no.19)who will be looking to better his fourth round finish in Melbourne Park earlier this year, and three-time Grand Slam quarter-finalist Ajla Tomljanovic (no.46), who returns from knee surgery which caused her to miss the past four months of tennis.

Other players flying the Aussie flag include Max Purcell (world no.67), Jason Kubler (world no.68), Jordan Thompson (world no.71), Alexei Popyrin (world no.82), Chris O’Connell (world no.85), plus the wildcards Thanasi Kokkinakis (world no.107) and Kimberly Birrell (world no.111)

For all the Roland-Garros headlines, talking points and highlights, watch Grand Slam Daily, available every morning of the tournament on Stan Sport, and hosted by Chris Stubbs with renowned Australian player, coach and commentator Wally Masur. They will cross regularly over the course of the tournament to Duncan McKenzie-McHarg on the ground in Paris, who will be chatting with some of the biggest names in world tennis.

Grand Slam Daily begins this Friday afternoon with a special preview edition of the show, as Chris and Wally analyse the key matchups heading into the tournament and share their predictions. 

With every match streaming ad-free, live and on-demand on Stan Sport, and with four courts in stunning 4K UHD, tennis has never looked better.
