Preview:

Novak Djokovic, the world’s number 1, is the first seed in the tournament. He will be joining the tournament after winning the Italian Open 2022. This will be his first grand slam of the year, as he couldn’t participate in the Australian Open due to a vaccination issue. He was out of the tennis court for a few weeks, and now he is back on his track again. He will try his best to grab his 21st grand slam through this tournament.

Daniil Medvedev is the second seed in the tournament. Due to injury, he was out of court for the last couple of weeks. He replaced Djokovic as the number ATP number 1, but he couldn’t retain the position for a long time. But this time, he will return stronger court and compete for the French Open title.

Alexander Zverev is the third seed in the tournament. The world’s number three reached the semi-final of the Italian Open in his most recent tournament. He also played in the finals of the Madrid Open 2022 but eventually was defeated but Alcaraz there.

Rafael Nadal is the fourth seed and the favorite player for the French Open 2022. He won the Australian Open, the first grand slam of the year, and made history. This time, he will try to make history in the French Open. We all know that Rafa is a beast in the Clay court, and that’s why he is called the king of the clay. But his recent suffering from the injury will be the biggest obstacle between him and the trophy.

Another Youngster, Carlos Alcaraz Garcia, is a hot favorite for the title run. He has shown the world that he can defeat anyone in the court. He defeated Rafael Nadal in the Madrid Open quarter-final and Novak Djokovic in the semi-final and eventually won the trophy by defeating Zverev in the final. This has been a dream year for the 20 years old Spaniard, and he will try to win his first grand slam at the French Open in 2022.
