It is that time of the year again when old rivalries will resume, new ones will emerge, and eventually the player who holds his or her nerves better over the fortnight will be crowned the champion. Yes, tennis returns with its second Grand Slam of the year, the French Open 2023, and it is promised to be more intense, historic, and iconic than ever.
Scheduled from May 28 to June 11, 2023, the tournament at Roland Garros will witness the participation of some of the most famous stars in the arena. On the men’s singles side, current World No. 1 Carlos Alcatraz is the favorite to lift the coveted trophy for the first time in his career, despite the presence of Serbian legend Novak Djokovic, the King of Clay, and the greatest clay player tennis has ever produced, Rafael Nadal.
Both players share a whopping 44 Grand Slams among them, however, it is not Djokovic’s favorite surface, while Nadal is nursing a hip injury and hasn’t taken part at all in this year’s clay court season.
On the other hand, World No. 1 and 2, Iga Swiatek and Aruna Sabalenka, will lead the women’s challenge. Swiatek is a 2-time winner at Roland Garros and, from the current generation, the best clay court female player, while Sabalenka is fresh from winning the Australian Open this year and will look to carry on the momentum.
However, the biggest surprise from the women’s section could be home favorite Caroline Garcia, who is in the form of her life and can go all the way to clinch her first singles major and become the first French woman to do so after Marion Bartoli did it a decade ago in 2013.
