The Roland Garros 2023 will have many tennis players at the starting line who will want to be protagonists and be in the fight for the prestigious title. In addition to the three big favourites, the Serbian Novak Djokovic and the Spaniards Rafael Nadal (still in doubt) and Carlos Alcaraz, the former US player Chris Evert took stock of who the others might be worrying the Bigs.
One of the names pronounced by the former world number one in the WTA ranking was that of the Italian Jannik Sinner, indicated as a possible outsider. “Working with coach Darren Cahill and Simone Vagnozzi has made him much more professional and physically strong, he has already come face to face with Alcaraz a couple of times,” she underlined on the Italian, who last year due to a of the many physical problems he missed the opportunity to reach the final of the tournament.
Great consideration also on the Dane Holger Rune: “Lately he really impressed me, I think he’s very dangerous. I don’t know if he’ll be able to win the tournament, but I think he could eliminate a top player. He’s already number 7 in the world, he’s physically strong and he has a lot of determination
I would also consider Taylor Fritz‘s name,” she added in the interview with Discovery Sport.
Evert also talks about Dominic Thiem
The American also decided to comment on Dominic Thiem’s current momentum: “He needs to win a lot of good games, he’s been doing it lately and well.
It’s difficult to stop for a year and immediately move forward in competitions. It’s not easy to even accept everything that comes, he definitely has to work a lot but I’ve heard that he’s still willing to do it. Until the US Open he will probably continue to improve even more.
He’s been missed a lot, he’s a great talent and it’s good for tennis to have a person and a player like Dominic.” Before the appointment in Paris, the main players, with the exception of Rafael Nadal, will meet at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia for a new intense Master 1000.
