French Open 2023 Preview

This year, the tournament will take place from Sunday, May 28 until Sunday, June 11.

Spain’s Rafael Nadal won the Open last year, but for the first time since he made his debut in the event in 2005, the reigning champ won’t compete. With Nadal out, that leaves Carlos Alcaraz and veteran Novak Djokovic as the potential favorites to win the men’s singles title.

Djokovic and Nadal have both won 22 Grand Slam titles, and American tennis great John McEnroe believes Nadal’s absence could give the 36-year-old Nakak additional motivation.

“It’s his quest to be the best ever and win the most majors so right now it looks like he’s the only guy left who could break more records,” McEnroe said, via Eurosport. “He’s tied with Rafa so this is an opening. He’s had a tough year and a half in a lot of ways and he’s also done some incredible things. Novak, he’s always looking for some inspiration, some fuel, and he’s got some now and he’s got a great chance.”

On the women’s side, world No.1 Iga Swiatek defeated Coco Gauff 6-1, 6-3, to win the women’s singles championship last year. Swiatek’s top competitors include Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina and Barbora Krejcikova.

The 21-year-old Swiatek has been battling through a thigh injury in recent weeks, but she says it’s nothing to be concerned about heading into the tournament.

“Luckily nothing serious happened, so I had a couple of days off,” Swiatek said at Media Day in Paris, via WTA Tennis. “I’m still recovering from the thigh injury, but I’ll be good for my first round. That’s the most important thing for me. … I just love coming back here no matter what my ranking is or no matter what my previous results are.”

In men’s doubles, Rohan Bopanna and his partner, Matthew Ebden, are among the favorites, as are Yuki Bhambri and Saketh Myneni. In women’s doubles,  Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova and Americans Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula should be the top contenders.
