The French Open fourth round concludes on Monday and, by the close of play, we’ll know the eight men and eight women making up the quarter-finalists at Roland Garros.
Women’s world No 1 Iga Swiatek will look to continue her serene progress in defence of the title she won last year, with Ukraine’s Lesia Tsurenko standing in her way at the last-16 juncture. Sixth and seventh seeds Coco Gauff and Ons Jabeur will be also competing in the two women’s matches on Court Philippe Chatrier as they look to lay down a marker in pursuit of their first grand slam titles.
After a brief hiatus to put a women’s match as the night-session contest on Chatrier on Sunday (Aryna Sabalenka vs Sloane Stephens), the French Open organisers have reverted to type with another men’s contest slated for the evening slot on Monday – Grigor Dimitrov vs Alexander Zverev being given the honour. Scandinavian duo Casper Ruud (fourth seed) and Holger Rune (sixth seed) are among the other men trying to book a spot in the last eight earlier in the day.
They’ll be aiming to join the likes of Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz in the quarter-finals after the pair moved ever closer to a blockbuster semi-final match-up by easing through their fourth-round matches on Sunday. Djokovic surpassed Rafael Nadal’s all-time record by reaching his 17th French Open quarter-final with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 thrashing of Juan Pablo Varillas, while Alcaraz continued to look every inch a potential champion in a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory overLorenzo Musetti.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Day 9 of the French Open.
