The 2022 French Open live streams have reached the quarter-final stage and every game from here on is well worth watching.
In fact, today (Tuesday, May 31) sees one of the biggest games yet — namely Djokovic vs Nadal. So read on and we’ll show you how to watch French Open live streams from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab), potentially for FREE.
Yes, there’s no question what the highlight of today’s French Open 2022 action will be: Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal. But the 59th meeting between two of the world’s best ever players is far from the only big game.
There’s also the small matter of Alexander Zverev vs Carlos Alcaraz — AKA the third seed vs the sixth seed. The men’s tournament is now looking very top-heavy, after second seed Daniil Medvedev and fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas both lost yesterday. That’s left us with a strange situation in which the two quarter finals in the top half feature four of the top six seeds, while the bottom half has just numbers seven and eight.
The women’s draw is even more lopsided. Iga Swiatek marched on again yesterday, and will face 11th seed Jessica Pegula next. But otherwise, the top seeds are numbers 17 and 18.
They’re both in action today, with the Cori Gauff vs Sloane Stephens match seeing an all-American clash in the women’s singles, while Leylah Fernandez, the 17th seed, meets Martina Trevisan of Italy.
You’ll find the full listings for today’s games below. Read on and we’ll show you how to watch the French Open live streams from Roland-Garros, wherever you are.
FREE French Open live streams
How to watch French Open live streams for FREE in 2022
If you’re lucky enough to live in Australia, France or Austria then you can look forward to FREE French Open live streams from Roland-Garros in 2022.
That’s because the free-to-air Channel 9 and its 9Now (opens in new tab) streaming service in Australia, France.TV (opens in new tab) in France and ServusTV (opens in new tab) in Austria all have rights to the action.
But what if you’re usually based in one of those countries but aren’t at home for a particular French Open live stream? Maybe you’re on holiday and don’t want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you’d usually be able to watch for free at home?
Don’t worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. We’ll show you how to do that below.
French Open live streams around the world
How to watch the 2022 French Open live streams from Roland-Garros anywhere with a VPN
It’s natural that you might want to watch the 2022 French Open live streams from your home country, but what if you’re not there when it’s on?
Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you’re surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you’re in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
For instance, an Australian who’s currently in the U.S. could watch the French Open live streams on 9Now (opens in new tab), even though they’re not in Australia.
They’re totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We’ve tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It’s fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we’ve said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you’re in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you’d select Australia from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to 9Now or another website and watch the tennis.
How to watch French Open live streams in the US
If you’re in the U.S. you have lots of options to watch a 2022 French Open live stream from Roland-Garros.
Viewers can watch all the tennis action on NBC and the Tennis Channel, plus selected Bally Sports regional networks. NBC can be accessed with one of the best TV antennas, while the Tennis Channel is available in some cable packages.
If you’ve cut the cord and don’t have cable, you can watch the French Open via several live TV services, including NBC’s own Peacock (opens in new tab), plus Sling TV and Fubo.TV.
Of these options, we recommend Peacock: it costs just $4.99/month with ads, or $9.99 without, and includes lots more great content as well as the French Open live streams from Roland-Garros.
If you go the SlingTV route, you’ll want Sling Blue, which is $35 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including NBC (in select regions). It also includes the Tennis Channel as part of its Sports Extra package, for an extra $11/month. On the plus side, right now Sling is offering 50% off the first month (opens in new tab).
Fubo.TV, meanwhile, costs $70 per month for 121 channels. Sports fans will find a number of niche sports channels among its lineup.
If you already use those services but aren’t in the U.S. right now, you can watch the French Open live streams by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
And if, for whatever reason, you can’t get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN (opens in new tab), which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark (opens in new tab) which offers 24 hour assistance.
Also, can Golden State sweep in the Warriors vs Mavericks live stream? In other news, the first Mission: Impossible 7 trailer is amazing, you’ve gotta see Tom Cruise’s latest wild stunt. We’ve also got all the things you need to know about the Stranger Things season 4 release date and time (including the first eight minutes of the new season).
How to watch the 2022 French Open live streams in the UK
British tennis lovers also have a couple of options to watch the 2022 French Open live streams from Roland-Garros, but the situation isn’t quite as good as in previous years.
This year, the tournament won’t be available to watch on free-to-air channels, whereas last year it was on ITV.
Instead, Discovery Plus (opens in new tab) and Eurosport (opens in new tab) have the rights to the French Open live streams. Don’t worry about the fact that there are two channels listed; Eurosport is being rolled into Discovery Plus, so it won’t matter which you subscribe to.
Discovery Plus is available for £6.99/month or £59.99/year. You can sign up for Discovery Plus here (opens in new tab), or access the service via Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab) — and here you can get a seven-day free trial of the service. Plus, if you don’t already have Amazon Prime itself, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of that at the same time.
Going on holiday this week or next? Sign up to ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) or another VPN service and you’ll be able to use the services you already subscribe to.
How to watch the 2022 French Open live streams in Canada
Canadians can get all the French Open action on TSN (in English) or RSN (in French), as part of a cable TV package. If they’ve cut the cord, they can sign up for TSN (opens in new tab) or RDS (opens in new tab) streaming accounts for $7.99 (CAD) a day or $19.99 per month.
Not at home right now? Use ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) or another VPN service to trick your device into thinking you’re still in Canada.
How to watch the 2022 French Open live streams in Australia
Aussies can again watch the 2022 French Open live stream on Channel Nine this year, after they cut a deal for exclusive coverage from Roland-Garros that also saw them broadcast last year’s tournament.
The big games will air on the free-to-view 9Gem and 9Go channels and via the on-demand service 9Now (opens in new tab), but to watch every game, ad-free and in up to 4K, you’ll need a subscription to Stan Sport (opens in new tab).
Stan can be accessed via a wide variety of devices including many smart TVs, iOS and Android phones, Chromecast, Apple TV and more — plus it costs a very reasonable $20 AUD per month ($10 for a standard subscription and $10 for the Sport add-on). A 30-day FREE trial gives you a taste of the platform — and the good news is that the Sport add-on also has a 7-day FREE trial.
You’ll need to pay extra to access HD or 4K streams and to increase the number of devices you watch on, but even if you go for the full-fat Premium sub with the Sport add-on, you’d still only be looking at $29/month.
As well as the French Open live streams, Stan also has tennis action from Wimbledon, Champions League 21/22 live streams, Europa League coverage plus a huge amount of live Rugby.
Not in Australia right now? You can simply use a VPN, such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), to watch all the action on your Stan account, as if you were back home.
