The second Grand Slam of the tennis season is among us, as the best players in the world will gather at Roland Garros for the 2014 French Open. As detailed in an LA Times report on May 20, dates for Les Internationaux de France de Tennis, TV schedule, live stream information, draws, odds and predictions are now available.

The 113th edition of the French Open is scheduled to get underway Sunday, May 25 and culminates with the men’s singles finals on Sunday, June 8 in Paris, France. With eight Roland Garros titles to his name, four-time defending champion Rafael Nadal will lead the way as the top seed in the men’s draw, while Serena Williams – a two-time winner who will be defending her crown in 2014 – will be the one to beat on the ladies’ side.

The official French Open 2014 draws will be announced on Friday, May 23 at 5:30 a.m. ET (2:30 a.m. PT). Tennis fans around the world can watch the proceedings via free live stream at Roland Garros TV.

As far as TV scheduling and live streaming information for the actual matches are concerned, a TV By The Numbers report indicates that ESPN will have continuous coverage of this year’s clay Grand Slam from Round 1. As usual, DirecTV customers will have the ability to experience the French Open on a larger scale with in-depth coverage (channels 701-707).

Meanwhile, the best way to watch this event live online is to stream the matches on ESPN's live streaming page. For more TV and live streaming information please visit Watch-ESPN and’s TV programming schedule.

Tennis oddsmakers are certainly not taking any chances when it pertains to listing their early betting favorites. Days before opening day, the top two seeds are favored to repeat as Roland Garros champs. Rafael Nadal currently leads the men’s draw at +130 odds, while Serena Williams sits atop the women’s field at +120.

From a personal standpoint, while one would find it very hard to argue against Williams, if this year’s clay-court season has proven anything, it is that “Rafa” is simply not at his best. Therefore, taking Novak Djokovic +150 seems like a smarter decision to make in best-of-five set matches.
