2021 Roland Garros ATP Final Preview: Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas were the two best tennis players in the past 13 days and on day 14 of the Roland Garros they will contest the final. Everything is known about these tennis players. Djokovic is one of the best to ever do it while Tsitsipas is slowly making steps to become a great one to do it. For Djokovic, this final comes after an impressive and historic win over Rafael Nadal.
He has the chance to become the first tennis player in the Open Era to win at each Grand Slam at least twice. He has a chance to increase his tally to 19 coming one shy of Nadal and Federer. All of that is very important to Djokovic which is why this match is significant.
For Tsitsipas it holds immense value as well. Often lauded as the first real threat to the big 3 he has a chance to prove it. A win over Djokovic in the French Open final will be something none of the next-gen players achieved. It would be his first Grand Slam final which is an important milestone for many great tennis players. But it will be tough.
He has a negative 2-5 H2H against Djokovic with their final match coming not even a month ago in Rome. Tsitsipas could have easily won that match and should have won that match. If he did he would have something to fall back on ahead of this match. This way Djokovic has all the mental fortitude on his own side.
The final should be a great one. Djokovic is the absolute favourite but the Greek will have his chances. If he plays the way he can and if he catches Djokovic on an average day he can win his first Grand Slam. Come back later to find out in our report.
2021 Roland-Garros Schedule of Play:
Sunday, June 13th:
15:00 Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
Saturday, June 12th:
Two women that have never contested a Grand Slam final will contest the final of Roland Garros today at 15:00 CET. It has been an amazing week for both Krejcikova and Pavlyuchenkova. Krejcikova reached the final by playing amazing tennis and defeating some stellar opposition along the way.
Pliskova, Alexandrova, Svitolina, Stephens, Gauff and Sakkari all fell en route to her first singles grnad slam finals. Krejcikova is a 2x French Open winner in doubles and today she will look to add another one to her tally. Her opponent Pavlyuchenkova also never played in a Grand Slam final before.
The Russian is enjoying a resurgent year at 29-years old showcasing some of her best tennis yet. She has always been a steady performer but in Paris these past two weeks things finally clicked. McHale, Tomljanovic, Sabalenka, Azarenka, Rybakina and Zidansek fell en route to her first Roalnd Garros final.
This will be a fascinating final as either play realistically could win. They are separated by very little and it will come down to the wire. Krejcikova is slightly favoured as she has enjoyed a breakout year in 2021 and her level at times has been top-10 worthy. She will need to bring it today because if she does not play her best Nastia will be crowned the winner.
15:00 Krejcikova vs Pavlyuchenkova
Friday, June 11th:
It's the men's semifinals day at Roland Garros and we will see two interesting matches which will determine who goes to the final. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will once again square off in a very important match for both players. It's a sort of legacy match with Nadal as the favourite.
Djokovic is not without chance as the Serbian has high confidence but similar to Nadal, he too has shown weakness in his game. Nadal has a 16-10 H2H in grand slam matches and it's really hard to see how he could lose this match.
The 2nd semifinal will feature Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev. Both of them played extremely good tennis to reach the semifinals and both of them will try really hard to reach that final. Tsitsipas is the slightly better clay-court player but Zverev is hard to beat.
The H2H favours Tsitsipas with 5-2 but their lone 2021 match was won by Zverev in the final of Acapulco. They played once on clay (Madrid, 2019) and despite Zverev loving the conditions there, he was not able to win the match.
14:50 Zverev A. (Ger) - Tsitsipas S. (Gre)
17:30 Djokovic N. (Srb) - Nadal R. (Esp)
Thursday, June 10th:
Day 12 at Roland Garros will not feature any ATP matches with the schedule of play officially split by days. We will have two WTA matches, the semifinals, determining who will play in the final. It's a curious year as neither play is ranked in the top 10 but it will be great nonetheless.
The first one will feature Pavlyuchenkova and Zidansek. The Russian has been a steady performer for years but never quite got the big break. Today she will have the chance against Zidansek who is mostly known for her clay-court prowess. The Slovenian did well to survive many close situations but against Nastia she will need her best.
15:00 Pavlyuchenkova A. (Rus) - Zidansek T. (Slo)
16:30 Krejcikova B. (Cze) - Sakkari M. (Gre)
The 2nd semifinal will feature Krejcikova and Sakkari. Both of these players have played sensationally all week long. Krejcikova is playing the tennis of her life and breezed her way into the semifinals. On the other hand, Sakkari has been long overdue for such a result and her win over Swiatek was brilliant.
Both players have equal chances as they play great all week long but Krejcikvova's poise in key moments can lift her over Sakkari who can play far too erratic at times. She will need to control her emotions feel because if she doesn't she will be in trouble.
Wednesday, June 9th:
The 2nd batch of quarterfinals is today and we will find out which remaining 4 players will be part of the men's and women's semifinal. The programme will start at 11:00 CET with a great matchup between Krejcikova and Gauff. They never played before but Barbora Krejcikova has been the standout performer at the event with Gauff on a tear as of late. At 12:30 we will see Iga Swiatek take on Maria Sakkari.
Both players play aggressively so it should be a spectacular match filled with great rallies. Swiatek has been here before so she should have the advantage but Sakkari can beat anyone on her day. The 3rd match of the day will feature Nadal taking on Diego Schwartzman. It's a familiar matchup as these players played numerous times with Nadal dominating the H2H.
Schwartzman has played solid in Paris but it's hard to see how he can beat Nadal on clay. He did beat him once in his career and took a set of him in Paris as well but this should be all Nadal. The final match of the day is between Djokovic and Berrettini.
The Italian did not play in the last round as Federer withdrew so he will be a bit rusty. He will fancy his chances against Djokovic whose weakness were well used by Musetti. Still, Djokovic is the favourite and will most likely win the match.
14:00 Nadal R. (Esp) - Schwartzman D. (Arg)
20:00 Djokovic N. (Srb) - Berrettini M. (Ita)
11:00 Gauff C. (Usa) - Krejcikova B. (Cze)
12:30 Sakkari M. (Gre) - Swiatek I. (Pol)
Tuesday, June 8th:
Day 10 at the Roland Garros brings us the first two pairs of quarterfinals at the event. We will find out which players in the ATP draw and the WTA will reach the semifinal. On the ATP side of things, we have a proper delight as Medvedev will take on Tstisipas. The Russian holds a 6-1 H2H against the Greek but the Greek is the far better clay player.
Both played great at this event and both will have equal chances to move on with the damper conditions in the event probably favouring Tsitsipas a bit more. The 2nd ATP match will be between Zverev and Fokina. Zverev holds a 2-0 H2H and he will be heavily favoured in this one as well.
On the WTA side of things, we won't see any big names play today but we will see good tennis nonetheless. Zidansek and Badosa have never been so deep at the Grand Slam but both of them earned it. They are one the best clay performers playing today and it will be a great match.
The 2nd quarterfinal will feature Rybakina and Pavlyuchenkova who did extremely well to go this deep. They know each other's game well and actually play doubles together here as well. It will be an interesting match with either having good chances to advance.
15:00 Zverev A. (Ger) - Davidovich Fokina A. (Esp)
17:00 Tsitsipas S. (Gre) - Medvedev D. (Rus)
12:00 Zidansek T. (Slo) - Badosa G. P. (Esp)
13:30 Rybakina E. (Kaz) - Pavlyuchenkova A. (Rus)
Monday, June 7th:
Day 9 at Roland Garros brings us 7 interesting matches, 3 on the ATP side and 4 on the WTA side. Roger Federer withdraw from Roland Garros which sent Matteo Berrettini directly into the quarterfinal. The first ATP match today will be between Schwartzman and Struff. Both players did well to reach this stage but Struff has been far more impressive.
Novak Djokovic will also play today and he will take on Musetti. Djokovic spoke highly of Musetti ahead of their match saying how much he liked his game. The Italian is a tricky player to beat especially on clay but Novak is far more experienced. Another clash between a legend and an Italian will follow as Nadal takes on Sinner. They played twice on clay and Nadal won both matches with ease.
On the WTA side of things, we should see much more drama. We have 4 matches and the first one is Stephens vs Krejcikova. Not many players have played better tennis than Krejcikova lately and she will be favoured here. After that match, we will see Jabeur take on Gauff. The rise of the American phenom has been a joy to watch and this is a brilliant opportunity for her to take it even further.
2020 finalist Sofia Kenin will have to play Maria Sakkari. It should be a great match with fireworks as Sakkari does not know how to play timid tennis while Kenin has picked up some form in Paris. The final match of the day will be the night match between 2020 champion Swiatek and Marta Kostyuk.
12:30 Schwartzman D. (Arg) - Struff J-L. (Ger)
13:30 Djokovic N. (Srb) - Musetti L. (Ita)
16:00 Nadal R. (Esp) - Sinner J. (Ita)
11:00 Stephens S. (Usa) - Krejcikova B. (Cze)
12:00 Jabeur O. (Tun) - Gauff C. (Usa)
14:30 Kenin S. (Usa) - Sakkari M. (Gre)
21:00 Kostyuk M. (Ukr) Swiatek I. (Pol)
Sunday, June 6th:
Day 8 at the Roland Garros is the first day of the 2nd week which means we are getting closer to the quarterfinals. We have 8 matches today and all matches will give us the first quarterfinalist of this year's French Open. As always it will start at 11:00 CET as Cirstea takes on Zidansek. Neither player usually goes this deep in an event so this is a golden opportunity for both.
After them, we will see Azarenka take on Pavlyuchenkova. Both players played well so far and Azarenka in particular is very motivated to do good at an event she usually did not. Former finalist Vondrousova is back to playing good at the French Open and she will face off against the in-form Badosa. The final WTA match of the day will be played in the early evening hours as Serena Williams takes on Elena Rybakina.
On the ATP side of things, we will get underway at 14:00 CET with Garin taking on Medvedev. The Russian is playing great but Garin is the best clay courter he has faced this year and it will be a proper test. At the same time, Tsitsipas will play Carreno Busta. The Spaniard is very hard to beat and usually does not throw away matches so it should be fun.
Two players that will cherish this opportunity for a place in the quarterfinal are Davidovich Fokina and Delbonis, Fokina played a marathon match in the previous round so his stamina will be key. Today's night match is reserved for Alexander Zverev and Kei Nishikori who have played twice on clay in 2021 with the score being 1-1.
14:00 Garin C. (Chi) - Medvedev D. (Rus)
14:00 Tsitsipas S. (Gre) - Carreno-Busta P. (Esp)
16:00 Davidovich Fokina A. (Esp) - Delbonis F. (Arg)
21:00 Zverev A. (Ger) - Nishikori K. (Jpn)
11:00 Zidansek T. (Slo) - Cirstea S. (Rou)

12:30 Vondrousova M. (Cze) - Badosa G. P. (Esp)
17:45 Williams S. (Usa) - Rybakina E. (Kaz)
Saturday, June 5th:
Day 7 at the Roland Garros will bring us some of the best to evet do it as Djokovic, Nadal and Federer will all be playing today. The programme starts at 11:00 CET as always and on the ATP side of things it will kick off with an Italian clash. Musetti will play Cecchinato in a clash of present and future. Schwartzman will take on Kohlschreiber at the same time.
A bit later we will see Spanish phenom Alcaraz take on Struff while Sinner will play Ymer. Novak Djokovic will step out at 13:30 to take on Berankins while a bit after that Rafael Nadal will take on Cameron Norrie. Berrettini will play Kwon while the day will be closed out by Roger Federer who will play Dominik Koepfer.
On the WTA side of things, we will quite a bit of tennis as well. Kicking us off at 11:00, it will be Muchova vs Stephens while at noon Krejcikova will play Svitolina. 2020 Finalist Sofia Kenin will take on Pegula at 13:00 while Kostyuk will play Gracheva after that.
Ons Jabeur will play vs Linette while a proper banger will follow as Sakkari takes on Mertens. Konteveit will have to play defending champion Iga Swiatek in another great match with the programme being closed out by Coco Gauff and Jennifer Brady.

Jannik Sinner will also play and his opponent will be his compatriot Mager. Lloyd Harris and Cameron Norrie will play another polarizing matchup where either player could take the win.

Djokovic will be the first one to play and he will take on Cuevas. A bit later we will see Roger Federer take on Marin Cilic. They usually play in Grand Slam finals but this still should be a great match. The night match is reserved for Rafael Nadal who will take on Richard Gasquet.

Play will start at 11:00 CET and it will start with a couple of interesting matches such as Isner vs Querrey and Sinner vs Herbert.
