Novak Djokovic’s form coming into the tournament
Defending champion, Novak Djokovic will be chasing a record 21st Grand Slam in Paris.
Novak Djokovic boosted his preparations for the French Open by winning his first title of the year at the Italian Open in Rome last week. The World No.1 will be one of the favorites as he chases a record-equaling 21st Grand Slam at the French Open. The Serbian has had a dismal 2023 so far and the win at the Italian Open acts as a great confidence booster for him going into the second Grand Slam of the year.
Djokovic is happy to be back in winning ways. The Serbian is confident of putting up a strong title challenge in the Roland Garros. “I could not ask for a better lead-up to Roland Garros. I’m going to Paris with confidence and good feelings about my chances there“, said Djokovic after his win in Rome.

The World No.94 from Japan has not been in ideal touch coming into the French Open. Nishioka has lost in the very first round of qualifying in his previous three tournaments – the Lyon Open, the Italian Open, and the Madrid Open.
