Coverage: Selected radio and text commentaries on BBC Radio 5 Live and the BBC Sport website, plus daily reports and analysis

Andy Murray will meet fellow three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in the French Open first round – the man who the Briton played in his last match on the Paris clay in 2017.

British women’s number one Johanna Konta, seeded ninth, has been handed an eye-catching opener against American teenager Coco Gauff.

Dan Evans – the nation’s top-ranked man – meets Japan’s Kei Nishikori.

However, British number two Kyle Edmund has pulled out of the tournament.

Edmund’s withdrawal means there will be six British players taking part in the singles, which starts at Roland Garros in Paris on Sunday.

The first-round matches in the men’s and women’s singles take place across the first three days.

The fortnight-long tournament is usually held at the end of May and the start of June but was postponed to this new date because of the coronavirus pandemic.
