Eurosport expert Boris Becker on …
…Alexander Zverev: “Zverev is back where he needs to be to be one of the favorites in Paris. He has the chance to get further than the quarter-finals, which is his previous record in Roland-Garros. But then he also has matches win if he doesn’t play that well, because that will definitely happen in up to seven games over the course of a Grand Slam tournament. In the past he has lacked experience here and there and I hope he has learned from it. There are only minor details involved, but he needs faith to be able to beat Djokovic, for example. “
…Rafael Nadal: “Nadal will be 35 years old at the beginning of June. There is no tournament that is more physically demanding than Roland-Garros. Perhaps it is the first sign of the times that Nadal is half a step slower or getting tired a little faster than before Ultimately, you can see that in the results: He also had a hard time in Rome and Barcelona. You don’t know that from Nadal. “
… Roger Federer: “He can’t expect to be one of the favorites for Paris. He’s been injured for too long and hasn’t played for too long. He now has to get back to his top form. That can only be done through matches. His goal is it to win another Grand Slam tournament. I think he has the best chance at Wimbledon – and for that he has to play in Paris. “
…Novak Djokovic: “He’s changed the course of the tournament this year. The tournament in Belgrade is organized by his brother. Maybe it’s a kind of family support to play there – then I could understand. It’s still unusual because the top players are usually already in the The week before Roland-Garros are in Paris and prepare for the tournament on site. We will only see whether this unusual path was the right one when it has played the first round in Paris and hopefully won. “
