The 2014 French Open gets underway on Sunday in Paris with the start of the first round.

The second tennis Grand Slam event of the year arrives with the 2014 French Open set to begin at Roland Garros on Sunday. With the start of the first round, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams will officially begin their respective defenses of last year's titles. Both players will attempt to repeat as champion starting from the top, as they are the No. 1 seeds in the men's and women's draws.

Williams will headline the women's singles action on Sunday when she takes on Alize Lim in the first round. No. 3 seed Agnieszka Radwanska and No. 8 seed Angelique Kerber will also be in action on Sunday. Radwanska will face Shuai Zhang, while Kerber will play against Katarzyna Piter. Nadal won't be in action on Sunday, with No. 4 Roger Federer the highest-seeded player on the schedule. No. 6 Thomas Berdych, No. 8 Milos Raonic and No. 10 John Isner will also take to the court.
