Athletistic/Tennis. The world’s first racket, 24-time winner of Grand Slam tournaments, Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic shared his expectations for the performance of competitors at Roland Garros 2024. According to him, if Rafael Nadal participates in Roland-Garros, he cannot not be excluded from the number of big favorites, despite the health problems and successful performances of young tennis players.

“Speaking of the younger generation, Casper Ruud is definitely one of the five winning candidates. Then there is Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, all of whom have won major tournaments on clay this year. But when it comes to Roland Garros, I still think Nadal is the big favorite. Considering all his exploits on these courts, the number of titles, it is normal to consider him a leader, despite his injuries. Obviously, his level of play has changed a little now… But it’s Roland Garros and there it’s Nadal. They are inseparable,” Djokovic was quoted as saying by First Post.
