Djokovic has won two French Opens, including last year with plenty of great moments and highlights over the years:
This year has not started off in an ideal fashion for Djokovic, not being able to participate in the Australian Open and only winning one of the five tournaments that he has participated in so far.
Nonetheless, he is still the top-ranked player in the world and has the opportunity to win his third French Open major title and tie Rafael Nadal with 22 total major wins this week.
Last year Djokovic was tested with wins over Matteo Berrettini, Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas between the quarterfinals and finals to capture his second French Open title.
This is the third match between the two with Djokovic 2-0 in those matches, winning with absolute dominance in straight sets both times and by a total score of 30-10 in sets.
The French Open is a grueling summer major on clay that tests the stamina, endurance and skill of every tennis player that has been dominated by Nadal over the years, which could set up a monster collision of the two titans of tennis in the finals again this year.
The first round will conclude tomorrow, with the start of doubles play as well.
