The 2016 women’s French Open for singles starts on Sunday, with qualifiers already under way. This year’s tournament will feature numerous past champions. However, among them, only Serena Williams appears to have a realistic chance at claiming another title.
Past champions that are in this year’s event are Williams, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Ana Ivanovic, and Francesca Schiavone. Other than Serena, no one expects the past champions to go far in the tournament. In addition, two-time champion Maria Sharapova won’t be in the event due to her ongoing banned-substance issues.
But Williams charges into Roland Garros this season behind a recent Italian Open title that broke a nine month winning drought.
