The year’s second grand slam, the 2022 Roland Garros, is on the way. The outdoor clay court tournament will begin on May 22 at the Stade Roland Garros. You will know when, where, and how to watch the tournament, along with the top seeds here.

Preview:

In the run-up to the French Open, defending champion Novak Djokovic has played in several tournaments, which has helped him improve his game. While competing in the Italian Open a week ago, he won his 1000th career match, bringing his total number of Masters titles to 38. The Serb will be bursting with self-assurance as a direct result of achieving that victory.

Because of his foot ailment, Rafael Nadal’s prospects of setting a new record by winning the French Open for a record-extending 14th time have been questioned. However, considering his track record as the player with the most victories in the competition’s entire existence, it would be foolish to rule him out.

After having surgery to repair a hernia, Daniil Medvedev made his comeback on the tennis court at the Geneva Open. In all of his matches leading up to the French Open, this was the only one on clay. He had not advanced beyond the first round of the Paris tournament in any of the previous four years, but in 2018, he made it to the quarterfinals.

Alexander Zverev represents the third seed in this match. He is now playing at a high level and made it to the semifinals of the French Open last year. Zverev will begin the tournament against a qualifier, and there is a possibility that he may play Sebastian Baez in the second round.

Carlos Alcaraz, still a teenager, has swiftly established himself as a player of the highest caliber this year. The only thing left for him to do is try his hand at becoming a major. He is in great form after winning back-to-back tournaments in Barcelona and Madrid. The young man will begin his campaign for his first Major title against a challenger from the qualifying round.
