While the recently concluded U.S. Open barred fans from attending, the French Open will allow 5,000 spectators per day. That is less than half of the 11,500 the French tennis federation initially announced it was planning for. The number was reduced last week.US Open 2020 champion Dominic Thiem doesn’t see himself as the number 1 candidate for winning the French Open 2020.
“Nadal and Djokovic are also the absolute favorites in Paris,” said the World No.3 Thiem in a recent interview.Thiem admitted that irrespective of form, Nadal is not someone who can be neglected, especially when it comes to playing on clay. The 34-year-old Spaniard recently lost to Argentine Diego Schwartzman in the quarters of the Italian Open 2020. It will be the first time in 12 years that the World No.2 Nadal will play the French Open without having won a title on clay.He (Nadal) had no hardships with the New York trip, he trained on the sand the whole time. He’s the best player of all time on clay,” said the US Open 2020 winner.
Thiem had faced Nadal in the last two finals of the French Open. Nadal won on both occasions. However, Thiem was able to breach Nadal’s fortress at the Australian Open 2020, in the quarters of the tournament. He was later defeated in the final by Novak Djokovic.
Rafael Nadal holds the record for winning the most number of French Open titles. If he wins this time too, it will be a hat-trick for him, and increase his tally to 13. However, Djokovic’s unbeaten run in 2020 and thiem’s excellent form could prove to be a barrier for him this time.
Nadal hasn’t played a Grand Slam match since January 2020, as he decided not to play at the US Open 2020. So the question is will Nadal be able to turn the tables once again at the French Open 2020?These two have been long-time rivals, and this is their 12th H2H meeting. Halep has the most wins, but Pliskova dominated in their most recent matchups. This 6-0, 2-1 victory also marks Halep’s second straight title since tennis tournaments resumed after the hiatus.
Moreover, this is Halep’s first Italian Open title, after she failed to convert either of her final appearances in 2017 and 2018. But now, the tournament’s #1 seed played great tennis throughout, excelling every opponent she faced.The Italian Open victory is the perfect confidence booster Halep needs ahead of Roland Garros. Moreover, she is on a 14-game winning streak and looks unstoppable at the moment.
Though the magnitude of competing in Paris is quite different than other tournaments, Simona Halep does not want to add any stress on herself. “It’s just another tournament,” Halep said, talking about the 2020 French Open. “I’m not going to put pressure on myself. I’ve played really well this year with three titles already.”
“I’ve played so much on clay, so I feel confident and happy that I’ll have a chance to play another Grand Slam this year. I’m not going to let myself be bothered by things like the weather. I’ll just be happy to take positives from this tournament and go there smiling,” she further added.
“It’s a dream for everyone to win the Grand Slam tournament from the first day, so it’s my dream as well, but I’m not thinking that far,” Halep continued. “I just want to go there, get used to the courts and the atmosphere, and try to win every match I play. Every match is a battle, so I’ll be ready for it.”
The 2018 Roland Garros champion does not want to get ahead of herself with Italian Open victory. Moreover, she wants to enter the French Open with a calm mind, with no external or internal pressure. Will we see her recreate her magic from two years ago?
Halep takes a cheeky dig at Pliskova over her victory at Rome last year
The Halep-Pliskova rivalry has been a thrilling watch over the years. Their first professional meeting was back in 2015, a game in which Halep emerged victorious. Since then, there have been eleven other occasions where these two have clashed.
The Romanian registered an emphatic win in Rome, but in the 2019 edition of the Italian Open, it was Karolina Pliskova who took home the title. Thus, after the finals game, Halep mentioned how great Pliskova’s game is, and moreover mentioned the reason why her Czech opponent might have cruised to victory last year.
“She has a strong serve, her forehand and backhand are unbelievable. She has all the shots, and the courts here are maybe a little faster than other clay courts, so that’s why she won last year and is feeling so good,” Halep mentioned.
