World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is scheduled to play Potito Starace third on Court Phillippe Chatrier on Monday after women's No. 1 Victoria Azarenka and defending champion Li Na play their opening matches against Alberta Brianti and Sorana Cirstea respectively.

Roger Federer is second on Court Suzanne Lenglen when he takes on Tobias Kamke, while Britain's Laura Robson, who was handed a place in the main draw as a lucky loser, is first on Court 6 against Anabel Medina Garrigues.

British pair Anne Keothavong and Heather Watson are also scheduled to play on Tuesday, while Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will all kick off their French Open campaigns on Day Three.
