Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic learn paths to French Open final

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

Italian Lorenzo Sonego will be Roger Federer’s first French Open opponent since 2015 when the tournament gets underway next week, although the Swiss will have the go through Rafael Nadal if he is to reach the final.

The 37-year-old is making his comeback to Roland Garros and will be relatively pleased with the draw he has been handed.

However, things will get significantly tougher for him at the quarter-final stage onward, where both Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas could lay in wait.

The draw has been kinder to Nadal, who will face qualifiers early on before a potential quarter-fina match-up with Kei Nishikori.

Novak Djokovic’s quest for a second ‘Novak Slam’ will begin with meeting with Hubert Hurkacz.

The world number one will hold all four Grand Slams at the same time should he win at Roland Garros, and he has been drawn in the same quarter as Alexander Zverev, who he may face in the last eight.
