Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the French Open 2018!

09:49 (GMT)29 MAY 2018

Rohan Bopanna and Edouard Roger-Vasselin are seeded 13th this time around and they will be going face-to-face with the American pair of Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe, who are unseeded.

The French player, Edouard has bonded well with the Indian, and they have been on a good run. They reached the semi-finals in Monte Carlo and the quarter-finals in Barcelona. 

Rohan entered 2017 French Open with Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski, and they defied all odds by winning the Grand Slam.

This will certainly be an interesting match. However, Indo-French duo will be the favourites. 

If Bopanna and Edouard manage to win this and their next tie, a tough challenge awaits them in Round 3 in the form of top seeds and 2017 Wimbledon champions Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo. The duo will try and keep their game spot on to reach till there and must bring out their best in every match.
