The 2011 French Open is on and the red clay of Roland Garros is ready to take over the television screens of tennis fans everywhere. The first of the summer Grand Slam series, the French Open has historically been a wide open affair as the clay court specialists took advantage of their skills against the hard court players. Domination from the likes of Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal in recent years changed all that and this season it's Serbian Novak Djokovic who brings an incredible winning streak to 40 matches.
Monday is the second day of the 2011 French Open and will see many of the top seeds on the court. Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki, and Vera Zvonareva will all be in action with the broadcast in the US on the Tennis Channel, ESPN2, and NBC . Monday's matchups are only available on The Tennis Channel, and not on ESPN2 as they will be on Tuesday.
For those who want to watch at work, the Tennis Channel provides an live online stream. You never know when a high-seed will be upset.
