Seventh seed Johanna Konta will play world number 109 Hsieh Su-wei from Chinese Taipei in the opening round of the French Open.

The path to the last 32 looks fairly smooth for the British number one, despite Konta not being a natural clay-courter or having ever previously won a match at Roland Garros.

Should she beat Hsieh, her second-round opponent would be either American Taylor Townsend or a qualifier, with a potential third-round meeting against France's Caroline Garcia.

That is where things could start to get tricky for Konta, 26, although Garcia has never made it past the second round in her home grand slam event.

Should the Briton progress, she could potentially meet ninth seed Agnieszka Radwanska.

The Pole holds a 2-1 lifetime head-to-head record advantage over her but Konta won their last meeting at the final of the Sydney Open in January.

Defending champion Garbine Muguruza was handed a tough first-round match against 2010 champion Francesca Schiavone while top-ranked Angelique Kerber will be up against 40th-ranked Ekaterina Makarova when the tournament gets under way on Sunday.
