Roger Federer gets his French Open campaign underway against Denis Istomin on Monday, and Express Sport has all the details on how to watch the showdown for free.

Federer appears to be facing a tough battle in progressing through the early rounds after a lengthy injury layoff kept him out of action for the vast majority of last year.

The Swiss icon has struggled to find his best form since making his long-awaited comeback at the Qatar Open in March.

Federer has also already admitted that he has little to no chance of wrapping up his first title at Roland Garros since 2009.

“How can I think of winning the French Open?” Federer told reporters in Geneva earlier this month.
