The 2020 French Open starts at Roland Garros on Sunday. The iconic clay court tournament is the second Grand Slam of the year.
Rafael Nadal is aiming for his 14th singles title but could have to get past Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals. Stefanos Tsitsipas has reached two of the last three Grand Slam semi-finals he has contested and is poised to reach the final.
Men’s 2021 French Open Tips
Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer all find themselves in the top half of the draw. Djokovic has won the French Open once in 2016, Federer lifting the title once in 2009 with Nadal winning 11 titles in Paris.
Nadal recently beat Djokovic in the Rome Masters final and beat Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Barcelona Open final. Both finals went the distance which shows Nadal won’t have it easy if he reaches the latter stages at Roland Garros.
Roger Federer is coming back from injury and not expected to go the distance in Paris. With Rafael Nadal having an easier road to the semi-finals, I expect a Djokovic vs Nadal semi-final.
The bottom half of the draw sees Alexander Zverev, Casper Ruud and Dominic Thiem all drawn in the third quarter. Two of those three should reach the quarter-finals with the chance to take on Tsitsipas in the semi-finals.
Stefanos Tsitsipas stand out for me. The Greek recently won the Monte Carlo Masters, reached the final in Barcelona and won the Lyon Open.
The World No.5 reached the French Open semi-finals last year and I see him going one better and reaching the final in 2020.
Stefanos Tsitsipas comes into the French Open in great form and has a favourable draw. I am backing the World No.5 to meet Rafael Nadal in the final where he can win his first Grand Slam.
