Murray and Wawrinka challenges

In 2017, Murray and Wawrinka both flew high and challenged the Coupe des Mousquetaires. After two operations, they are now back to their peak state.

Wawrinka performed well in Paris last year, beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals. In those four games, he played against Roger Federer .

Since Novak Djokovic defeated Juan Carlos Ferrero at Wimbledon in 2012, this will be the first face-off of a Grand Slam champion in the first round of a Grand Slam.

The other men’s games on the first day are expected to be a breakthrough between the 2017 Nitto ATP Finals runner-up David Goffin and the next-generation ATP Finals champion Jannik Sinner at the Court Philippe-Chatrier Stadium.

The sixth seed Alexander Zverev will play his first match since the US Open final against Austrian Dennis Novak.

The German reached the quarter-finals in this competition, but he must remain sharp in the first clay court game of the year. Dominic Thiem’s ​​close friend Novak will make his debut in the Roland Garros main draw. If given the opportunity, he will be happy to attack actively in the rally.

Two clay court players will also meet at the Simone Mathieu Stadium: No. 12 seed Diego Schwarzman and Kitzbuhel champion Miomir Komanovic. They have not met before, but they will definitely attend interesting baseline gatherings. Schwartzman defeated Rafael Nadal with the utmost courage in the first Masters 1000 final of Inter Milan BNL d’Italia. However, if he is not in the best condition, Kecmanovic will be ready to take advantage.
