0 13

Rafael Nadal is missing the French Open for the first time since 2005, but many superstars are still putting on a show at Roland Garros. Iga Swiatek is confidently working on defending her title. Meanwhile, on the men’s side, Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic have a chance to meet in the semi-finals.

Alcaraz entered this year’s French Open as the No. 1 seed — his first time as a No. 1 seed in a Grand Slam tournament. He recently replaced Djokovic as the No. 1 player in the world, and the two find themselves on the same side of the bracket. The last time they faced each other was when Alcaraz defeated Djokovic in the semifinals of the Madrid Open on May 7, 2022.

Djokovic and Nadal are currently tied for most men’s Grand Slam titles with 22 each. The Serbian star has a chance to win his 23rd prize in Paris.

Nadal has won the French Open 14 times, including last year. Earlier this month, the veteran announced that he was withdrawing from the competition due to an ongoing hip injury. In that news, he also said that he plans to retire after the 2024 season. Nick Kyrgios he will also skip this year’s French Open due to the same knee injury that kept him out of the Australian Open in January.

The tournament was upset when the world No. 172 Thiago Seyboth Wild down No. 2 Daniil Medvedev in five sets in the first round. In the second round, Daniel Altmaier defeated No. 8 Jannik Sinner 6-7 (0-7), 7-6 (9-7), 1-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5 in a battle that lasted nearly five and a half hours.

On the women’s side, defending champion and world No. 1 Swiatek came in as the top seed. She injured her leg two weeks ago in the third set of her quarterfinal match against Elena Rybakina in Rome. However, Swiatek took a few days off to recover and booked her ticket to Paris.

Last year was a breakout year for Swiatek as she won the US Open and the French Open. Before that, her only Grand Slam title was in 2020 at Roland Garros. In 2022, she won 37 games in a row.

A notable absence from the women’s side is Paula Badosa, who suffered a stress fracture in her back at the 2023 Italian Open earlier in May.

Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s tournament at Roland Garros:
