Last year, to get his ticket to the last Grand Slam match played at the Porte d’Auteuil in Paris, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic won the semi-final against Spain’s Rafael Nadal. For his part, the Greek Stefano Tsitsipás had the German Alexander Zverev. On Sunday, on the Philippe-Chatrier clay court, Djokovic lifted the Musketeers’ Cup after knocking down Tsitsipás in five rounds. A men’s final watched by 4.4 million spectators (7.6 million during the match point) on France 2. In the women’s field, the French Open crowned Barbora Krejcíková. The Czech player won her first Grand Slam tournament this time by beating Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. This year, the women’s and men’s tables seem especially open. As for women, Ashleigh Barty retired earlier this year. Poland’s Iga Swiatek is ranked No. 1 in the world and will try to do better than her quarterfinals in 2021. Miami Spring winner Naomi Osaka, former WTA No. 1, will do better than its third tower reached in 2016, 2018 and 2019? In men, what will be the course of Gaël Monfils, Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev, who have been injured by injuries in recent weeks? Will Carlos Alcaraz answer that? This year, watching the matches should be especially exciting.
