With qualification rounds for the men's and women's singles almost done, players will be eager to find out who they will face in each section of the draw.

The draw is set to take place at 7 pm local time today (5 pm GMT, 10.30 pm IST) and the ceremony will be telecast live for fans on YouTube via Roland Garros' official handle.
