The French Open returns to its spring spot on the calendar with daily live coverage among NBC Sports, Peacock and Tennis Channel.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Barbora Krejcikova, ranked Nos. 32 and 33 in the world, meet in Saturday’s women’s final.

One of the unlikeliest Grand Slam final pairings airs live on NBC, NBCSports.com/live and the NBC sports app at 9 a.m. ET.

Novak Djokovic gets fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the men’s final, live on NBC, NBCSports.com/live and the NBC sports app at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday.

FRENCH OPEN DRAWS: Men | Women

Rafael Nadal was the leading storyline, going for his 14th Coupe des Mousquetaires at Roland Garros and to break the record for most men’s Grand Slam singles titles.

But Djokovic ousted him in the semifinals. Now Djokovic can become the first man in the Open Era to win all four majors twice. He can win his 19th career Slam, moving one shy of the record shared by Nadal and Roger Federer.

The French Open women’s singles draw produced the greatest variety of recent champions of the four Grand Slams — seven different players the last seven years. That includes Serena Williams, a three-time champ whose last title in Paris came in 2015.

An eighth different champion will be crowned in as many years after all four semifinalists reached that stage of a Grand Slam for the first time in their careers.

Williams lost in the fourth round to No. 21 seed Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan. Williams remains on 23 career Grand Slam singles titles, an Open Era record and one shy of Margaret Court‘s all-time mark. However, most of Court’s wins came before the Open Era and some at the Australian Open before the world’s top players participated.

Defending champion Iga Swiatek was the overwhelming favorite before she lost in the quarterfinals. The world’s top four women all bowed out before the fourth round — No. 1 Ash Barty (injury), No. 2 Naomi Osaka (mental health), No. 3 Simona Halep (injury before the tournament) and No. 4 Aryna Sabalenka (third-round loss).
