It’s Roland around again – the French Open – one of the Grand Slam tennis tournaments, is getting underway in the Hexagon (France, if that wasn’t clear enough). Second best to only Wimbledon in terms of prestige, the French Open is serving up fierce competition with no love lost. Taking place on the traditional clay courts, the Roland Garros is set to get underway for another year, but how can you watch it in Australia? Find out in this Canstar Blue guide.
