Andy Murray has been drawn to play Japan’s Tatsuma Ito in the first round of the French Open.

Assuming the Scot gets past the world number 69, who he has never faced before in competition, a potentially challenging path opens up for Murray as he continues his quest for a first grand slam title.

A tricky second-round tie against either Jarkoo Niemenen or Igor Andreev would follow and further down the line the British number one could face some difficult opponents.

Australian teenager Bernard Tomic is a potential third round opponent, followed by Ukranian Alexandr Dolgopolov in the fourth round.

Of the potential draws in the fourth round, David Ferrer would prove dangerous and Rafael Nadal is more than likely to lie in wait in the semi-finals.
