The first round round matchups are set as the men’s and women’s singles draws for the French Open were announced on Thursday. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz are all on the same side of the bracket. If things work out as expected, the top seed and defending champion Djokovic could face Nadal in the quarterfinal round. This would be a good opportunity for Nadal — a 13-time French Open champion — to make Djokovic pay for defeating him in last year’s semifinals. 

Whoever advances could be taking on Carlos Alcaraz in the following round, that is if he can take care of Alexander Zverev in their own quarterfinal match. Alcaraz beat both Nadal and Djokovic in consecutive matches and went on to win the Madrid Open earlier in May. 

On the women’s side, world No.1 Iga Swiatek will entered the competition with a 28-match winning streak and the No. 1 seed and her path to a second French Open title got a little clearer after some big names fell in the first round including defending champion Barbora Krejcikova (2), Anett Kontaveit (5), Ons Jabeur (6), Garbine Muguruza (10) and unseeded Naomi Osaka who made her return to Roland Garros after withdrawing from the 2021 even to focus on her mental health.

Serena Williams will not be playing in the French Open for first time since 2017. She has not played since last June when she suffered an ankle injury at Wimbledon.
