The French Open 2023 is set to commence on May 28 with the best Tennis players battling for the Grand Slam title on clay. Defending champion and 14-time winner Rafael Nadal is missing the tournament due to an injury for the first time since his debut in 2005. Three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray has also withdrawn his name but fans will definitely witness the action for two weeks with the likes of Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, and Carlos Alcaraz clashing in the second major title of the year.
With Nadal not in the picture, Djokovic is touted favorite to win in Paris and bag a record 23rd Grand Slam title. He is seeded at no.3 after failing to reach the finals of the Monte-Carlo Masters and most recently Italian Open. Current no.1 Carlos Alcaraz lost in the second round in last year's Roland-Garros but is tipped to win his maiden Grand Slam title on June 11.
World no.2 Daniil Medvedev bagged the Italian Open to display his improvement on clay and will target his maiden French Open title. In women's singles, the reigning champion Iga Swiatek enters the tournament as a world no.1 for the second consecutive year. The Polish youngster has won two French Open titles (2020, 2022) and enters this edition as a clear favorite, despite her injury troubles in Italian Open.
