2023 Roland Garros Day Five Preview/Schedule including Swiatek, Jabeur, Rybakina, Gauff, Zverev and Fritz

It is Day Five at 2023 Roland Garros with the second round taking place including defending champion, Iga Swiatek on the women's side of the draw. The schedule is now confirmed and we have a preview of the action.

As well as Swiatek, Ons Jabeur, Holger Rune, Coco Gauff and Elena Rybakina are all in action over the show courts providing multiple storylines in the Matches to Watch.

Matches to Watch

Iga Swiatek v Claire Liu

Swiatek enjoyed a good birthday with the World Number One not having to play but the now 22-year-old will hope that another year older means another Roland Garros title.

She faces American, Claire Liu second up on Court Phillippe Chatrier. A player who she has faced twice times previously.

She holds a flawless record all the way back to the start of her playing days in 2018 with another meeting at Indian Wells meaning that they haven't played on clay yet.

Holger Rune v Gael Monfils

The night session game could feature another session of Monfils Magic in one of the most highly anticipated games of the second round.

Holger Rune who is also gaining a reputation as an entertainer similar to Monfils will be the opponent for the Frenchman. Used to playing with the crowd on his back, it is a situation that Rune will likely relish.

Expect true entertainment and likely more than three sets in this one.

*Note this has now been removed due to Monfils withdrawing from the tournament due to a wrist injury

Elena Rybakina v Linda Noskova

Another top WTA name continuing their campaign is Elena Rybakina who faces Linda Noskova in the next in line of the promising Czech talent.

It is another first time meeting between the pair. Noskova has shown promise this season reaching the final of Adelaide and having multiple other runs but has failed to reproduce that yet.

It is likely a step up though from Rybakina's opener against Brenda Fruhvirtova and will be one that could see the Kazakh tested.

Ruud, Jabeur, Zverev, Gauff, Fritz and Andreeva all in action

In other players to watch, Casper Ruud opens Chatrier against Guilio Zeppieri. While Jabeur plays in between Swiatek and Rune against Oceane Dodin.

On other show courts, Jannik Sinner, Coco Gauff, Taylor Fritz, Alexander Zverev and a certain 16-year-old prodigy, Mirra Andreeva all headline a must watch day of action on the clay courts of Paris.
