with the abandonment of Roger Federer, there are only three games in the men's chart on the program of this Monday in Roland-Garros. Among the posters, we find Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Yet it is the duel between Diego Schwartzman and Jan-Lennard Struff who will be by far the most interesting to admire.Because Schwartzman finds his best Level had left Argentine in the semi-finals of Roland-Garros in the fall of 2020, helpless and overwhelmed by Rafael Nadal. Since then, the current Tenth Global Player at ATP has been discreet and chained early defeats, whether at the Open of Australia, Miami, Monte-Carlo, Madrid, Rome, and even Lyon more recently . A catastrophic series interspersed with an enchanted parenthesis in Buenos Aires where he won at home the fourth title of his career. But since the beginning of Roland-Garros, the little Diego is back to business and has sent his first three rounds with a lot of authority, even if his opponents were not tours of the circuit (read, Bedene and Kohlschreiber), neither the dirt battered. Because Struffe Quotes Funhuième-de-Finalist Porte d'Auteuil Two years ago, Jan-Lennard Struff has already equaled his best result in a single chople tournament. At 31, German found a certain stability in its ranking and manages to regularly reproduce very interesting performances. Winner of Andrey Rubible in the first round, one of the big outsiders of this 2021 edition of the Parisian tournament, the world's 42nd chained without shaking against Facundo Bagnis, classified beyond the Top 100, and the young sepite Carlos Alcaraz (18 years), 94th world player, but promised a great future and already author of some shots. It is never too late for Struff to assert and slam a small feat by rallying the quarter-finals of a major for the first time in his career, twelve years after his professional debut.Because the opposition of Style is entrelishing one side, an Argentine lilt that culminates at 1.70 meters, known for its rallies being well anchored on its line of background and its foolproof endurance that make it a real poison in the matches in five sets . On the other, a German giant whose measurement reaches the 196 centimeters, which capitalizes on a big first bullet and aggression in its strikes, while not hesitating to ride the net to conclude the points. Suffice to say that the meeting that awaits us on the Court Suzanne-Lenglen should be explosive and no doubt that the fight could lie throughout the summer afternoon that will sail the international people of France. Both players have been confronted twice since the beginning of their career, Schwartzman flying over the first dual on the mounted Monte-Carlo earth four years ago (6-3 6-0), before Struffe Rebalance Debates on an indoor in Cup Davis (6-3 7-6). Because Djokovic and Nadal will rinse Italian youth with Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal in Roland-Garros, it's the assurance of spending a very complicated moment and in general quite short on the Parisian deaten land. And if Italy can rejoice to have two young nuggets in the second week (plus another already in the quarter-finals in the person of Matteo Berrettini), the future for them seems to be scattered very fine. 76th World, Lorenzo Musetti will discover the joys (or not) to face the number one Serb that rises quietly from the first round. As for Jannik Sinner, find Rafael Nadal will be an opportunity for the 19-year-old Translambin to do better than quarter-finals of the 2020 edition, where Rafa had given a lesson to the kid (7-6, 6-4, 6-1). Because Federer has declared a must certainly have been the biggest thrill of pleasure for a week. Two years after his semifinal lost against Nadal, Roger Federer was back on the Parisian ocher. Winner in the boss in the first two rounds, with a convincing and reassuring victory against Čilić, Switzerland experienced a third round extremely complicated against Dominik Köpfer. In Night Session, the balese had to play four very tight sets and three Tie-breaks to impose it, spending a large amount of energy. Necessarily, see you soon 40 and with about five games in the legs, the physique is still fragile and the former world issue has preferred to impasse on its eighth finale against Matteo Berrettini to recover, preserve and Focus on its main objective: Wimbledon. And it may not be worse, because no one wanted to see Roger take 3-0 by the Italian.
