The last few days before a Grand Slam are always slow to pass by for tennis fans. However, on Friday, May 25th, fans planning on analyzing the 2012 French Open will finally be able to.
Finding the draw event streamed online for free in all parts of the world isn't easy, and I'm not aware of where to go for that service. However, if you want to get information as quickly as possible as to who plays who in the draws, then one option you have is to follow the draw on the Facebook page for the event.
The draw is to begin at 11:30 a.m. Paris time, and that's equal to 5:30 a.m. ET (Toronto/New York). Here's your link: 2012 French Open draw.
If the presentation is anything like what I've seen in the past, there will not be video footage. However, when seeds are announced in Paris, names will be filled into a draw that tennis fans can see. Besides actually being at the tournament, this is the fastest way to stay informed that I know of.
Tennis fans who have not been following the news this week should be advised to not be surprised if they don't see Mardy Fish, Robin Soderling, Kei Nishikori or Gael Monfils in the draw. All four of those players announced that they would be missing the tournament in recent days. Monfils in particular cited a problem with his right knee following his early exit at ATP Nice, according to The ATP World Tour Twitter feed.
