2024 French Open Roland Garros Tuesday Schedule and Preview including Alcaraz-Tsitsipas, Dimitrov-Sinner, Swiatek and Gauff

Tuesday, 04 June 2024 at 02:27
The schedule has been confirmed for Tuesday at the 2024 French Open with the Quarter-Finals taking centre stage and we will get our first four semi-finalists during this year's tournament in Paris.
Carlos Alcaraz will take Centre Stage in the Night Session in yet another top tie as he faces off against Stefanos Tsitsipas for a spot in the semi-finals. Jannik Sinner, Iga Swiatek and Coco Gauff are all in action also as we reach a pivotal juncture in proceedings.

Gauff and Swiatek take Day Session spots

Rather oddly given that she is in one of the ties of the day, Coco Gauff will play in the first match of the day. Odd because it is during the night in the United States so those who want to tune in will be asleep when she plays. Compared to perhaps shoehorning her into the Night Session instead and helping those in the US as a captive audience to watch it.
She faces Ons Jabeur in the opening Quarter-Final. It is a match with history as Gauff has won 4 out of 6 meetings with the Tunisian. She defeated her at the WTA Finals and also in 2021 at Roland Garros 6-3, 6-1. Both are different since then though and aren't really easy to suss out. Jabeur has spent most of the season injured and truthfully a shadow of her former self some would say. But she has ignited something on the clay and looks to be heading back towards something like her best. Which is good ahead of the grass court season.
Gauff just does what she does. She is always there or thereabouts and usually plays in this time slot winning within an hour. She usually spends more time doing press commitments in reality than playing on court. But of course Jabeur is her biggest test yet and is likely to be the closest of the WTA matches all day.
Iga Swiatek will aim to continue her brilliance into the Quarter-Finals.
Iga Swiatek will aim to continue her brilliance into the Quarter-Finals.
That is due to the second one featuring the best player this tournament in Iga Swiatek in a match that will be billed as a multiple champion v former finalist. But Marketa Vondrousova has not been the same since winning Wimbledon. She has had a myriad of injuries and perhaps might string it together against Swiatek but it is more likely to be a statement win for the World No.1. Especially given that Swiatek has a 3-0 Head to Head with the last win coming 7-6, 6-0 at the 2023 WTA Finals. Will Swiatek continue her rampage or will Vondrousova make it interesting?

Dimitrov-Sinner and Tsitsipas-Alcaraz set for mouthwatering ATP line-up

While the ATP is a truly delicious line-up as Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz aim to reach the semi-finals in a tournament they potentially weren't set to play.
Sinner is third up and ends the Day Session. He faces Grigor Dimitrov for a spot in the semi-finals. Head to Head wise it favours the Italian. This is despite Dimitrov upping it in recent months. He has been one of the most consistent players in the sport for the past 10 months and has been truly superb.
But this has also coincided with the rise of Jannik Sinner who holds a 3-1 lead over Dimitrov. All of which have come during his rise to the top of the sport. Starting last year in Miami, he also defeated him during the infamous sick in the bin tournament in Beijing. The sick that started it all. He went on to become the all conquering Sinner and bookended that with a thrashing in the Miami final this season. He has continued to look even better throughout the tournament and will aim to continue that on towards his best again after recent injury woes.
Carlos Alcaraz holds a 5-0 record over Tsitsipas in Head to Head.
Carlos Alcaraz holds a 5-0 record over Tsitsipas in Head to Head.
Similar can be said for Alcaraz who holds an even better record against one Stefanos Tsitsipas who he faces in the Quarter-Finals. He is 5-0 up on the Greek. Among the record includes a rampant win on clay in Barcelona twice as well as last year's Quarter-FInal at Roland Garros in three sets. Will it be the same result this time? Book end 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 in your diary.
