Alcaraz won the quarter-finals encounter against 2021 French Open runner-up, Stefanos Tsitispas in a very convincing fashion. The match was a straight sets encounter where the Spaniard triumphed with the score line of 6-2, 6-1, 7-6. The Spaniard has lost only 1 set till now and has been impeccable lately.

The Spaniard is playing at the French Open in 2023 after having a good run in the ongoing clay court swing. The World No. 1 had won the Madrid Masters by defeating German Jan Lennard Struff in a 3-set encounter. However, Alcaraz lost in the third round of the Rome Masters, which was quite unexpected given his recent results. The 20-year-old made it to the quarterfinals of the tournament last year. With his current form, the 20-year-old has the chance to go to the final of the tournament.

Novak Djokovic has been flawless so far at Roland Garros. In the quarterfinals, Djokovic defeated Olympic silver medalist Karen Khachenov in a 4-set encounter. The score of the match was 4-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4. The 22-time grand slam champion is playing better tennis as the tournament progresses, and he would fancy his chances against the 2022 US Open champion.

The Serbian did not have a good build-up to the French Open as he was carrying an elbow injury. The aim was to get fit for the Roland Garros and it is now visible with his recent results.

Talking about head-to-head, the duo have met only once in the past where the Spaniard came out on top. They met at Madrid Masters in 2022 where Alcaraz won with the score line of 6-7, 7-5, 7-6.
