We will return for more tennis coverage from the ATP Tour when we head to Germany for the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, live on Sky Sports Arena from 11am on Monday, 18 June.
Former world No 1 Williams, now ranked a lowly 453, is playing a Grand Slam for the first time since she won her 23rd major at the 2017 Australian Open, after which she stepped off the tour to give birth to her daughter in September.
Williams has played just four matches on the tour in 2018, not featuring at all since Miami in March. She will take on Pliskova, who is the twin sister of world No 6 Karolina, and has never won a main draw match at Roland Garros.
