Zverev has been in good form recently as he was the last man standing in the Madrid Open. He had beaten the 8th seed, Matteo Berrettini in the finals in 3 sets with the score line of 6-7, 6-4, 6-3. After winning in Madrid, the world number 6 bowed out in the quarter finals to the eventual champion, Rafael Nadal. Interestingly, the German had won 3 consecutive matches against Nadal before losing to him with the score line of 3-6, 4-6. He would be looking to make a deep run in this year’s Roland Garros as he was only able to make till the round of 16 in the last year’s French Open.

Oscar Otte is coming into the first round after playing 3 rounds of qualifying matches. He was unseeded in the qualifying draw but still managed to make it to the main draw. He had also beaten Indian, Prajnesh Gunneswaran in the 1st round of the qualifying tournament with the score line of 6-2, 6-2. The world number 155 has been playing ATP Challengers regulary and has performed decently in the recent past. He made it to the final of the ATP Challenger in Prague which was played on 9th May. His best performance at the French Open was in 2019 where he reached the second round.
