Program for Friday 9 June

After women, place for men. On Friday, June 9, the final four singles players will battle it out for their place in the Roland Garros final.

There is no time for an aperitif, the afternoon will open with the long-awaited choc fra Carlos Alcaraz AND Novac Djokovic – not before 14:45 Difficult to identify a favorite between the young Spaniard, number one in the world, impressive since the beginning of the fortnight, and the Serbian (3ᵉ) who is aiming for a 23rd Grand Slam title. The two men have faced each other only once, last year in Madrid (Spain), with a victory for the youngest in three sets (6-7[5]7-5, 7-6[5]) and 3h35 of play.

It will then be the turn of the two “ghosts” Casper Ruud (4ᵉ) e Alexander Zverev (22ᵉ) to fight (not before 17:30). The Norwegian, a finalist in 2022 against Rafael Nadal, had had a disappointing season so far while the German, who returned after his injury against the Spaniard last year, arrived without too many points of reference. Both have rediscovered the Porte d’Auteuil colours, where they will face each other for the first time on clay.
