French Open 2022 qualification results, schedule and wildcards: who will compete at Roland-Garros?

The 2022 French Open is just around the corner and all eyes are now on who will compete at Roland-Garros.

A total of 128 men and women will compete for singles titles, with Novak Djokovic and Barbora Krejcikova looking to defend their crowns.

While the road to the French Open is easy for some players, it is not so easy for others.

How does qualifying for the French Open work?

The top 104 men and women who register for the French Open automatically qualify for the Grand Slam.

Players can also qualify based on the proprietary ranking system, which ensures that previous high placement is honored even if a player is out due to injury or inactivity. For example, Stan Wawrinka will compete using this method in 2022, although his ranking dropped to 246 in early May.

For those who do not have a good enough ranking or protected ranking, the next best players wishing to participate in the event will be placed in qualifying rounds with 16 places to be won.

Players will be divided into 16 groups of eight, with whoever wins three straight games in their section securing their place at the French Open. Sometimes finalists known as “lucky losers” also get a qualifying spot.

After that, eight other players will be given a place at the French Open as wild cards.

These wild cards are chosen at the discretion of the tournament organizers, with local players and returning big names who were unable to qualify outright often being selected.

In 2021, seven out of eight French Open wildcards for both the men’s and women’s singles draws were players from France.

When do you qualify for the French Open?

The 2022 French Open qualifiers begin on May 16th and end four days later on May 20th.

The French Open officially begins on May 22, giving qualifiers a short time to prepare for the Grand Slam once they’ve booked their seat.

Has a qualifier ever won a Grand Slam?

Emma Raducanu became the first qualifier in the Open Era to win a Grand Slam title when she triumphed at the 2021 US Open.

Remarkably, the British teenager didn’t drop a set during qualifying or the tournament, showing that qualifiers are capable of creating a stir at Grand Slams.

At the 2021 French Open, no qualifier made it to the fourth round, but both Carlos Alcaraz and Henri Laaksonen made it to the third round in men’s singles.
