Roland-Garros: Nadal-Djokovic, a clash of titans from the quarter-finals

This Tuesday evening, spectators at the Philippe-Chatrier court will have the privilege of attending a legendary quarter-final between the two best players on the current circuit: Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. For this meeting, scheduled in the evening but broadcast free of charge, the Serb leaves with an advantage against the doubtful physique of the Spaniard.

This is the poster of the day in tennis: the quarter-final between Rafael Nadal, 13 times winner of Roland-Garros, and defending champion Novak Djokovic. A meeting which will be broadcast in the evening on Prime Video, but free of charge, after the intervention of Amélie Mauresmo, the tournament director. It’s a clash of titans ahead, especially following last year’s spectacular semi-final win by the Serb. The reunion takes place this time in the quarter-finals, but with questions about the form of Rafael Nadal.

“It’s going to be a monumental effort to win”

While his opponent has been in steamroller mode since the start of the competition, the Spaniard’s body creaks more and more. He was not far from the defeat on Sunday against the young and talented Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime: “Rafael, he comes here to win the tournament anyway, so I wish him the best. It’s true that it’s going to be a monumental effort to win, but as they have always done Novak and him, they will give everything until the end and it will be a beautiful fight”, analyzes the world number 9.

The last game of Nadal’s career?

This fight has become a classic of current tennis, often even the best meeting on the circuit. At Roland-Garros, it will be the tenth time they have faced each other and perhaps the final one. Indeed, Rafael Nadal explains that each match he plays here is perhaps his last at Roland-Garros and even of his tennis career.
