Switzerland’s veteran tennis star Stan Wawrinka has labelled the world number one Novak Djokovic amongst the favourites for the upcoming French Open 2024. The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest players in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles.
Djokovic is going through rather rough time in the ongoing season where he is yet to play in the final of any event. His most recent appearance came at the Rome Open where he was knocked out after losing in the round of 32 to Alejandro Tabilo in straight sets with a score of 6-2, 6-3.
The second Grand Slam of the year is set to be played from May 26th to June 09 in the French capital city of Paris. Despite that, Wawrinka, recently quoted in a report, labelled Djokovic as one of the favourites to lift the title at the Roland Garros. ”I think it’s still like, of course he didn’t have the results he wanted the last few weeks but we know how he can push his level and the way he always finds a way to play the best tennis in Grand Slams, especially in five sets also. Of course, I still put him as the favourite at the French Open," he said.
