The tournament’s first seed is world number one Novak Djokovic. He will enter the competition after winning the 2022 Italian Open. He missed the Australian Open owing to a vaccination issue, therefore this will be his first grand slam of the year. He had been away from the tennis court for a few weeks, but he is now back on track. He will do all to win his 21st grand slam at this competition.

Daniil Medvedev is the tournament’s second seed. He had been out of the game for a few weeks due to injury. He succeeded Djokovic as the ATP number one, but he was unable to hold the position for long. However, he will return to the court stronger this time and challenge for the Roland Garros championship.

The third seed in the competition is Alexander Zverev. In his most recent competition, the world number three reached the semi-finals of the Italian Open. He also reached the finals of the Madrid Open 2022 but was beaten by Alcaraz.

Rafael Nadal is the fourth seed and the favorite to win the Roland Garros in 2022. He created history by winning the Australian Open, the year’s first grand slam. He will attempt to make history in the French Open this time. We all know Rafa is a beast in the Clay court, which is why he is known as the King of Clay. However, his new injury will be the largest roadblock between him and the championship.
