Preview

Due to his immunization status, the Serb was unable to compete in the Australian Open, Indian Wells, and Miami earlier this year. He lost out on being the first man to win 21 Grand Slams. Djokovic started his season at the Dubai Tennis Championships. He got off to a fantastic start, winning his first two matches, but was defeated 6-4, 7-6(4) in the quarterfinals by Jiri Vesely.

On Thursday, world number one Novak Djokovic easily dispatched old opponent Stan Wawrinka, defeating the returning former world number three in straight sets. Djokovic, 34, is poised to play his final tournament before turning 35 later this month, and he will enter Roland-Garros as the reigning champion after defeating Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals and Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final last season. Djokovic has won the Italian Open five times, although he finished runner-up last season in a three-set thriller against Nadal.

Felix Auger-Aliassime had a strong start to the year, assisting Canada in winning the ATP Cup. The Canadian won his first ATP title in Rotterdam after taking Daniil Medvedev to five sets in Melbourne. Following a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Lorenzo Musetti at the Monte-Carlo Masters, the Canadian advanced to the quarterfinals in each of his previous three tournaments.

But he has lost in three of them: against Diego Schwartzman in Barcelona, Sebastian Korda in Estoril, and Alexander Zverev in Madrid this time last week. Auger-Aliassime won his maiden ATP championship at the Rotterdam Open in February, but his greatest accomplishment yet is reaching the US Open semi-finals last season.

Djokovic vs Auger-Aliassime Prediction:

Since the beginning of the clay-court season in Monte Carlo, Novak Djokovic has gradually increased his performance. The Serb was particularly impressive in his loss to Carlos Alcatraz last week in Madrid. Djokovic’s serve yielded a high proportion of free points, and his movement appeared to be the best it has been in 2022. This week, the world number one has defeated Aslan Karatsev and Stan Wawrinka.

Felix Auger Aliassime has had an outstanding start to the season. The Canadian was a member of Canada’s ATP Cup-winning team. Auger Aliassime then advanced to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. Auger Aliassime earned his first ATP title earlier this season in Rotterdam, following his triumph in Australia. However, the Canadian has not regularly played his best tennis since reaching the final in Marseille the following week. However, trips to the quarterfinals in Madrid last week and Rome this week indicate that Auger Aliassime will be at his best for Roland Garros.

I believe this will be a tight race. Djokovic, on the other hand, is the most consistent of the two, particularly on serve. In a three-set showdown, I believe Djokovic will prevail.

Prediction: Djokovic will win in 3 straight sets.
