Number two tennis player in the world Roger Federer will be kicking off Day one at the 2015 French Open going against Alejandro Falla. The Swiss Maestro chose a rather lucky draw and won’t be seeing any of his super three: Rafeal Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray until further on in the open.

This is Federer’s 62nd successive Grand Slam and it will be the opening draw on Sunday at Roland Garros.

Federer’s compatriot and eighth seed Stan Wawrinka faces Turkey’s Marsel Ilhan while Japan’s fifth seed, Kei Nishikori, plays Paul-Henri Mathieu.

Romanian Simona Halep opens the women’s singles with Russia’s Evgeniya Rodina.

And seventh seed Ana Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open winner, faces world number 65 Yaroslava Shvedova, of Kazakhstan.

Britain’s Andy Murray will begin his tournament against Argentine qualifier Facundo Arguello on Monday.

Federer cannot meet Murray, Spaniard Rafael Nadal or top seed and world number one Novak Djokovic until the final as they are all in the other half of the draw. He suffered losses to each of them at the semi-final stages in Grand Slams during 2013 and 2014.

“There is a chance to go very deep,” said Federer, who has won 17 Grand Slams in his career. “How deep remains to be seen depending on the level of play.”

Federer lost in the fourth round at Roland Garros last year to Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis, but has a record so far of 25 wins and just five losses in 2015.

On clay, he lost the Italian Open final in Rome to Serbian Djokovic after claiming an 85th career title in Istanbul.

“I feel like I have had a great last 12 months,” he added.

“I’ve just got to make sure I adjust my game according to the playing conditions here, and then we will see how far it takes me.”

Spanish sixth seed Rafael Nadal, aiming for his 10th French Open title, faces French wildcard Quentin Halys in the first round after the weekend.
