Rafael Nadal: What the Spaniard is playing tennis again these days is simply unbelievable. Every now and then it seems to be another sport practiced by the 13-times Paris champion at Roland Garros. The 35-year-old hasn’t dropped a set this year and recently gave a lesson to rookie Jannik Sinner. It’s hard to imagine Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman could stop Nadal.
Novak Djokovic: The Serbian was challenged in the round of 16 by young Italian Lorenzo Musseti and lost the first two sets. Now the Australian Open champion is facing an Italian again. Quarter-final opponent Matteo Berrettini entered the match relieved that Roger Federer did not appear in his second round. Since the curfew in Paris begins at 11 pm only, 5,000 spectators are allowed to be present at the Central Court.
Alexander Zverev: The German top seed is really where Nadal and Djokovic still want to go. After beating Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, who was finally safe, Zverev wants to train properly on Wednesday. “My tank is not really empty yet and I won’t play again until Friday,” Zverev said. Otherwise, treatment and a traditional visit to the snow booth are included in the programme.
Women’s: Tuesday’s two quarter-final matches were exciting, and in some cases also top class. Wednesday’s duels also promise a lot. Only 17-year-old American Corey Gauff plays against Barbora Krejsikova of the Czech Republic, who last won the tournament in Strasbourg. Then he will meet defending champion Iga Swatik of Poland with Greek Maria Sakkari. The Polish woman is now the number one contender for the title after several candidates were eliminated.
