Barbora Krejcikova will be eager to make it back to back Roland Garros title triumphs on June 5 having won last year's tournament. 
Currently placed second on the Women's Tennis Association's (WTA) rankings, Krejcikova will be looking to consolidate her spot in the top two by winning the Roland Garros. 
Krejcikova is an eight-time Grand Slam champion, having won the 2021 French Open singles title, four women's doubles titles and three mixed doubles titles.

Looking at her performance at the 2021 Roland Garros, Krejcikova defeated 2018 finalist Sloane Stephens to reach her first Grand Slam singles quarter-final.
The Brno-born star overcame Coco Gauff in straight sets to set up a semi-final with Maria Sakkari, which she won in three sets, saving a match point en route.
Krejcikova, who is known for her strong serve and powerful groundstrokes, then beat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in three sets to claim her first Grand Slam singles title.
The 26-year-old has struggled with an elbow injury since the 2022 Doha Open in February and this injury has kept her out of the Miami Open, Stuttgart, Madrid, Rome, and Strasbourg tournaments.
However, Krejcikova is set to make a long-awaited return to action at Roland Garros and she will be decked out in the latest from Fila after signing with the apparel company.
"It is an honor to step onto the court and represent a brand with such an iconic history in the game," Krejcikova said on Wednesday. 
"I am grateful to Fila for the support and the opportunity to join the elite group of athletes who have worn the brand."
Prize money for the 2022 Roland Garros will total €43.6 million. The men's and women's singles champions in Paris will each receive €2.2 million.
