Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer have all found themselves in the same part of the men's draw at the 2021 French Open, while Naomi Osaka could take on Serena Williams in the semi-finals of the women's.
The draw looks particularly exciting for Dominic Thiem, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev with the quartet not having to face any of the 'Big Three' until the final at least.
A mouth-watering projected quarter-final line up could see Djokovic v Federer, Nadal v Andrey Rublev, Zverev v Thiem and Tsitsipas v Medvedev.

On the women's side there are a number of fascinating early encounters and routes to the final stages.
Defending champion Iga Swiatek will start her campaign against Kaja Juvan, while last year's runner-up Sofia Kenin takes on 2017 champion Jelena Ostapenko. Swiatek and Kenin could face off in the quarter-finals.
Second seed and Australian Open champion Osaka - who said she would not speak to the media throughout the tournament for mental health reasons - will make her comeback against Maria Patricia Tig.
