Rafael Nadal is the great candidate to win Roland Garros, after having achieved it 12 times. If it did, it would also reach the mark of 20 titles of Grand slam of Roger Federer. To achieve such a feat, the current world number one still has a few games left and, this time, he will have a tough rival in front of him: Sebastian Korda.
The duel between the multi-champion of major tournaments and the young man of barely twenty will take place in the first turn of the Philippe Chatrier stadium and you can enjoy it at ESPN AND ESPNplay.com.
Far from the problems he had had with the new balls, the Spaniard will face a player who has him as his greatest idol but who will not give any advantage in what is probably the most important game of his young career.
Korda, currently 213rd in the world rankings, is the son of Czech Petr, former Australian Open champion and finalist at Roland Garros 28 years ago.
