Rafael Nadal will go for one of the few titles that is missing from his showcase. And it looks like the draw gave him a wink. Yes, no finally the Masters 1000 in Paris has its path diagrammed though without spectators.
The Spanish will debut in the second round against the winner of the match between Filip Krajinovic and Feliciano López. To advance I would do it with Borna Coric and in the quarterfinals he would see David Goffin.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, second seeded, will make his exit to the central court before the winner of Ugo Humbert and Casper Ruud. In the eighth he could be seen with Felix Auger-Aliassime and in the quarters with Matteo Berrettini.
Further, Alexander Zverev will debut with Miomir Kecmanovic or John Millman, Daniil Medvedev with the winner of Kevin Anderson (executioner in Vienna) or a qualifier, Andrey Rublev with Hubert Hurkacz or a Qualy and Diego Schwartzman with Richard Gasquet or Taylor Fritz.
In big first-round matches, Auger-Aliassime will collide with Marin Cilic, Stan Wawrinka vs. Dan Evans, Alex De Miñaur vs Dusan Lajovic and Lorenzo Sonego (man of the week) vs. Alexander Bublik.
