Conquering the only Grand Slam title missing from his record, the World No. 1 is struggling for his first shots of racket at Porte d’Auteuil against David Goffin. The young Belgian was the revelation of Roland Garros last year.
Guest of the tournament, he reached the second round before being eliminated by Roger Federer. The two men will compete on the Philippe Chatrie court, if the weather permits.
We will also follow the output of French Benoit Paire. After his brilliant tournament in Masters 1000, Rome (editor’s note, eliminated in the semifinals by Federer), the 26th worldwide is cited as one of the Tricolor best chances.
In the women’s draw, the French Marion Bartoli is favorite against the Belarusian Olga Govortsova.
