World No. 1 Novak Djokovic survived a five-set battle against Lorenzo Musetti to advance to the fourth round of the French Open, continuing his chase for a record-extending 25th Grand Slam trophy. After a rain delay, Djokovic pulled off a 7-5, 6-7(6-9), 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 win over Musetti at 3 a.m. local time Sunday in Paris. 

Another title is not the only thing on the line for the Serbian veteran, who is set to take on Francisco Cerundolo during Monday’s fourth round. Djokovic, last year’s French Open winner, has to at least reach the semifinals for a chance to keep his world No. 1 ranking, otherwise Italian star Jannik Sinner can dethrone him. Sinner already punched his ticket to the fourth round with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win over Pavel Kotovic on Friday. He will be facing Corentin Moutet on Sunday,

This tournament has historically belonged to Rafael Nadal. However, the Spanish legend saw an early exit with a first-round loss to Alexander Zverev and might have played at Roland Garros for the last time. Spain would not be left without a star, as 21-year-old Spanish star Carlos Alcaraz has been making a name for himself. He is one of the favorites to with the French Open and has already earned a spot in the quarterfinals, where he will take on Stefanos Tsitsipas.

On the women’s tournament, world No. 1 Iga Swiatek almost got upset by Naomi Osaka in the second round, but she used that as a wakeup call and beat her next two opponents in straight sets. Swiatek was not lost at Roland Garros since the 2021 quarterfinals and is currently riding an 18-match win streak at the French Open. She has also won 16 consecutive clay matches with victories in Madrid and Rome.

Swiatek will be taking on No. 5 seed Marketa Vondrousova during Tuesday’s quarterfinal. Vondrousova has not made it to the French Open final since 2019, but she made a statement last season when she became the first unseeded woman to win Wimbledon. She followed that up by reaching the US Open quarterfinals.
