The French Open began on 16th May, Monday, and will continue till 5th June, Sunday. Currently, twelve games are played, and today on 20th May, will be the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth match.
Djokovic, Nadal, and Alcaraz will supposedly meet as early as the quarter-finals if they can beat their upcoming competitors. It will be an epic showdown as Carlos has previously defeated the world champions. Novak Djokovic will play his first match on 22nd May against Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka.

It would be a tough match as all three of them are in their best form.
Djokovic said, “ I am very motivated to play my best tennis. In Paris, I always play very strong. Previous year it was the toughest major that I had won.” He defeated Nadal last year for a title and would repeat the same.
