Defending champion Rafael Nadal begins his Roland Garros 2015 campaign on Tuesday by taking on unseeded Quentin Halys of France.

Nadal's slump in form will  be a matter of concern, as he has been seeded 6th for French Open 2015. Nadal will want regain his form as soon as possible in order to make it count in his favourite tournament again.

Nadal has been the undisputed king of the French Open, becoming the first player to win it five times in a row. He also holds the record of winning the French Open title nine times.

Top seeded Novak Djokovic too begins his French Open 2015 campaign on Tuesday. He will be up against Jarkko Nieminen from Finland, who is an unseeded player. Djokovic came very close to winning the Roland Garros title last year, but bowed down to Rafael Nadal in the end. Djokovic will be looking to add another Grand Slam to his name, by taking advantage of Nadal's recent dip in form. 

Women's top seed Serena Williams will play her first match of French Open 2015 on Tuesday as well. The American world number one will not want to lose her first match like her sister Venus Williams did on Monday.

Day 2 of the French Open saw a couple of upsets. Venus Williams, Agnieszka Radwanska, Feliciano Lopez crashed out of the Roland Garros 2015 tournament after losing their very first matches. Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych, though, cruised to Round 2 by registering wins over their first round opponents. 

The tournament has began on an exciting note and one can expect an interesting Day 3 of French Open 2015 as the big guns take centre-stage on Tuesday.
