Mumbai: In the lead up to Roland Garros 2021, Star Sports, India’s leading sports broadcaster, unveiled its official promo ahead of the tournament that is all set to air from May 30th, 2021, 2.30 PM onwards exclusively on Star Sports Select and Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Capitalizing on the rugged format of the red clay-court tournament, the broadcaster epitomized the sporting excellence with emphasis on the journey of individual players, who have created a name for themselves in the history of the fabled event.

The ‘King of Clay’ Rafael Nadal has sounded a warning signal two weeks from the defense of his Roland Garros crown defeating Novak Djokovic to win a 10th Italian Open title on Sunday. Nadal, who enters Roland Garros as the hot favourite, will be chasing a record 21st Grand Slam title. Meanwhile, Roger Federer resumes his injury comeback and will enter Paris after playing at the Geneva Open this week in a bid to build up his fitness. In the women’s field, reigning champion Iga Swiatek looks confident to defend her crown after her crushing 6-0, 6-0 win over Karolina Pliskova in the Italian Open final.
