Tennis, Roland Garros – Draw of the draw: Djokovic, Alcaraz and Nadal on the same side!

There was a lot of expectation to know where Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz would end up. If together, if opposite… Well, the draw for the men’s draw at Roland Garros 2022 was very tough: The two Spaniards are not only on the same side, they also end up on Novak Djokovic’s side. A very hard and devastating top.. In addition to the top 3 favorites for the title, in fact, there is also Alexander Zverev here. Therefore, Djokovic-Nadal could be a match already in the quarterfinals, just like Zverev-Alcaraz.

It’s much better for the underdogs, No.2-seeded Daniil Medvedev, as well as Andrey Rublev. But above all to the finalist of the last edition Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek finished in the lower part and will debut against Lorenzo Musetti; in the eventual room, on paper, with Ruud. At the bottom are also 4 of the 6 Italians in the main draw. Sinner will challenge a qualified player at the start. Below also Cecchinato-Andújar and Sonego-Gojowczyk. More unlucky in general terms Fabio Fognini, who ends up at the top impossible: the Ligurian will open with Popyrin.

Giluio Zeppieri must also be added to this blues: coming from the qualifications, we will only know his place on the scoreboard later, whose tournament ends tomorrow (Friday, May 20, ed). THE MALE BOARD

In the women’s scoreboard, also in this case, the upper part seems the most unbalanced. In fact, the current world No. 1 and Iga Swiatek were drawn here in a streak of 28 consecutive matches. Along with her also Sabalenka, Collins, Badosa and Pliskova. Here, at the top, also 3 of the 4 Italians present: Giorgi-Zhang, Bronzetti-Ostapenko, and Paolini-Begu the blues first round matches. Swiatek, who is aiming for a title already conquered here in 2020, will ultimately have to look at an uncomfortable client in the third round: 25th-seeded Liudmila Samsonova was the only player so far able to unsettle the Pole in this yours. 28-game winning streak. In short, a good match could come out on matchday 3.

Finish under current champion Krejcikova. The Czech, out for a long time due to injuries but despite this remains the world No. 2, will try to defend the title starting with Frenchman Parry. In the lower part there is also Martina Trevisan, who will start her campaign by challenging the English Dart. At the bottom also Ons Jabeur: winner in Madrid and finalist in Rome, the Tunisian will start by challenging the Polish Linette, and finally, a second round just against Trevisan-dart.
