Carlos Alcaraz drawn in the same half as Novak Djokovic in the French Open
Take a look at the potential draw of Carlos Alcaraz in Roland Garros this year.
Spanish World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz was handed a tricky draw at the French Open 2023 as he might have to face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals and Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals. Playing in his best form on clay and Rafael Nadal not in the draw, Alcaraz will be fancying his chances this year despite a comparatively tough draw.
This year, after skipping the Australian Open due to a muscle injury, he came back strong and defeated Daniil Medvedev in the Indian Wells Masters final. He was also able to retain the titles in Madrid and Barcelona. Buenos Aires is the other title he had this year.
While considering the absence of Rafael Nadal in the clay court swing till now and the struggles of Novak Djokovic to get into a rhythm, Carlos Alcaraz has a real shot at the biggest prize in Roland Garros this year.
