Novak Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 02.06.2023
World number 3 Novak Djokovic is looking to make history with a record 23rd Grand Slam title here at the French Open 2023. He already won at Roland Garros twice in previous years, but this year he has not won any tournament on clay. In the first and second rounds of this tournament, he dismissed Aleksandar Kovačević and Marton Fucovićs, though not as dominantly as expected. He will be facing a seeded player for the first time in this round so a tougher test is expected.
Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina may be the underdog going into this match, but he will be inspired by the fact that he beat Djokovic the last time the two met last year in Monte Carlo. Despite being one of the most promising grounders on the Tour in recent years, he is yet to win a title. In this year’s French Open, he already defeated two French teenagers Luca Van Assche and Arthur Fils to reach the third round of the tournament for the first time in his career.
Djokovic is seen as favorite here, but his slow starts in recent matches give the energetic Fokina a good chance in the opening rounds. As such, we expect some serious, well-balanced contests in the opening exchanges, leading to over 18.5 games in the first two sets.
