the live draw, towards a clash Djokovic-Nadal in the quarters

What to remember from this draw for the 2022 women’s edition

– Undefeated for 28 games, the world number one Iga Swiatek launches an assault on this 2022 edition of Roland-Garros. In her part of the table, she could find Simona Halp in the round of 16, Karolina Pliskova in the quarters and Paula Badosa or even Aryna Sabalenka in the semi-finals. On the other side, Ons Jabeur and Maria Sakkari could face each other in the quarter-finals.

– Among the shocks of the first round, Naomi Osaka, who forfeited in full edition last year, will have to fight against the American Amanda Anisimova (n ° 27), semi-finalist of the 2019 edition.

– The worst draw or almost for the French. In the first round, Diane Parry will face world number two and outgoing winner Barbora Krejcikova, Fiona Ferro against Paula Badosa (n°3), Chloé Paquet against Aryna Sabalenka (n°7), Clara Burel against Maria Sakkari (n° 4). Finally, Kristina Mladenovic will have to get rid of Leylah Fernandez (n°17), finalist of the last US Open.

What to remember from this draw for the 2022 men’s edition

– Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz are all at the top of the table. The Serbian and the Spaniard could meet in the quarter-finals, while the 19-year-old Spanish prodigy, if he defeats Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals, could challenge one of the two tennis legends in the semi-finals .

– On the French side, Jo-Wilfied Tsonga was not spared. For his last Roland-Garros, he will have to beat Kasper Ruud, seeded number 8, so as not to see his adventure stop in the first round. Ditto for Gilles Simon, who will retire at the end of the season, against Pablo Carreno Busta (n°16). Manuel Guinard will face Cameron Norrie (n°10) in the first round. John Isner (n°23) will be on the road to Quentin Halys. Corentin Moutet will also be entitled to a nice shock against Stan Wawrinka.

The French public looks gray before the start of the draw for the main draw of this 2022 edition of Roland-Garros. With the announced package of Gaël Monfils, injured in the right heel, no tricolor player will be seeded Porte d’Auteuil. A first in the 21st century.

Ugo Humbert (45th), Benjamin Bonzi (53rd) and Arthur Rinderknech (65th) will be the three highest ranked Frenchmen at ATP before attacking Roland-Garros. And it’s not much better on the women’s circuit with Alizé Cornet (40th), Caroline Garcia (73rd) or Océane Dodin (94th) also pointing far in the WTA rankings. It remains to be seen if they (and if they) will be spared at the time of the draw.
