The 2014 French Open started at Roland Garros earlier this week, players such as Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams are playing in the famous tennis open.
Andy Murray is hoping to make it to the final this year where he could potentially come up against last year’s winner, Rafael Nadal. So far he has made it through to the second round and he stated that ‘I didn’t play spectacular tennis but conditions didn’t really allow that...It was good enough to win the match.’
The French Open is being covered by a variety of channels including BBC, ITV and Sky Sports and for those travelling it can also be found on BBC Radio 5 Live. John Inverdale is presenting the coverage for ITV alongside former French Open Women’s Singles winner Marion Bartoli. The pair are working together following the media frenzy caused by John making a comment about Marion on Radio 5 Live last summer.
Another former French Open Women’s Singles winner, Mary Pierce is covering the Open for Radio 5 Live. BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Jonathan Overend is also commentating on the French Open.
We will be watching in the hope that Andy Murray can win his third Grand Slam title. If you are looking to book a sports speaker or presenter for a corporate event, call 02076077070.
