Two-time finalist Dominic Thiem missed a French Open wildcard on Tuesday, leaving the former US Open champion to battle through qualifying to reach the main draw at Roland Garros. The 30-year-old Austrian announced last week that he was retiring at the end of the season after a career blighted by a long-running wrist injury. 2018 French Open women's champion Simona Halep and 2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu of Britain were also ignored by the French Tennis Federation.

Those on the wildcard list also include Alexander Muller, who was beaten by a qualifier in the fourth round of the Rome Open on Tuesday, and Alize Cornet in what will be the French veteran's final tournament.

Also on the list were American Nicholas Moreno de Alboran and Australia's Adam Walton.

The second Grand Slam of the season starts on 26 May.
