Roland Garros, the scoreboards: Jannik Sinner's opponent, unlucky blues and an incredible first round

It begins with American Christopher Eubanks, world number 43, Jannik Sinner&#39s path to Roland Garros. The draw for the men’s draw of the Paris Slam reserved for the blue, world No. 2, the lower part as per seeding.

In the first round, a crazy crossroads for Rafa Nadal, who will meet German Alexander Zverev, just victorious in Rome and who two years ago in Paris and precisely against the Mallorcan was forced to withdraw due to a very serious injury in the semifinals. On this side of the scoreboard the likely semifinal è against the number 1, Novak Djokovic, while on Sinner’s side it would be against Carlos Alcaraz.

For the rest of the blue patrol, at the top of the scoreboard Fabio Fognini draws the Dutchman Botic Van de Zandschulp and Lorenzo Musetti draws Colombian Diego Galan. Moving down the board, Luciano Darderi will face the Australian Rinky Hijikata, Flavio Cobolli a qualifier. Then for the other Italians a trio of Frenchmen: Luca Nardi against Alexandre Muller, Matteo Arnaldi against Arthur Fils and Lorenzo Sonego against Ugo Humbert.

Four, on the other hand, are the Italians on the court at Roland Garros, and the draw for the women’s draw was not lucky for Lucia Bronzetti: the number 48 in the WTA ranking will have to face in the first round with former world No. 1, Naomi Osaka, now down to 134 after recovering from a one-and-a-half year stop.

Then in the second round, the Italian would find Poland&#39s Iga Swiatek, queen of world tennis and triumphant in Paris in 2020, 2022 and 2023. Elisabetta Cocciaretto finds Brazil&#39s Beatriz Haddad Maia, Jasmine Paolini the Australian Daria Saville, better known by her maiden name, Gavrilova, while Martina Trevisan waits to know the name of her opponent from the qualifiers.
