Novak Djokovic (1st) and Rafael Nadal (3rd) they will go for a pass to the grand final of Roland Garros after beating Matteo Berrettini (9th) and Diego Schwartzman (10th) respectively. It will be the ninth crossing between the two in Paris.
The one from Manacor and the Serbian will play in the second turn of the Philippe-Chatrier. The match will be played no earlier than 12:30 pm (Argentina time) and can be seen on the ESPN2 and ESPN Play screen.
The last game that saw them as protagonists was the final of the Masters 1000 in Rome with a victory for Nadal. Furthermore, the Spaniard already knows what it is to beat Djokovic at Roland Garros: out of eight crosses he beat him in seven. The general record has a slight advantage for the Serbian of 29 wins against 28 of the Spanish, but of the last eight he only won three: Wimbledon 2018, Australian Open 2019 and ATP Cup 2020.
