Hypothetical semifinals with the Italian Jannik Sinner or the American taylor fritzbecause a priori there is no Norwegian Casper Ruud to reach that.

and finish against Carlos Alcarazaccording to the order of the world. This will be the revenge of the ‘semis’ in Paris, the fight for number 1, the fight of the ‘Big 3’ against the new generation. “The main favorite is Djokovic”, said the Murcian before starting his third participation, on Tuesday against the Frenchman Jeremy Chardy.

“I’m ready, as well as pressure Djokovic,” said the recent winner of the ATP on grass from Queen’s, facing a table that promised more complications. In the second round, another Frenchman, Alexandre Muller or Arthur Rinderknech. Third round with the Chilean Nicholas Jarry.
