Viewers will be able to watch tennis superstars Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray – awarded a wildcard entry for the competition – in action once it gets underway.

Eurosport’s live 4K HDR coverage will be available on each day of the two-week long tournament on all matches that appear on Phillipe Chatrier court.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “Virgin Media has provided unprecedented coverage of Roland-Garros over the past few years and we continue this proud tradition with 4K and HDR viewing available to our customers once more.”
