Three Azzurri out of the nine present will play today. First, Lorenzo Musetti who will face the Swede Mikael Ymer, then it will be the turn of Sara Errani and Camila Giorgi
Starts today, Sunday 28 May, the Roland Garros. The first round is scheduled with nine Italian players who have had access to the main draw. The blues, in the absence of Matthew BerrettiniI am Jannik Sinner, Lorenzo Musetti, Lorenzo Sonego, Fabio Fognini, Marco Cecchinato, Giulio Zeppieri, Matteo Arnaldi, Andrea Vavassori and Flavio Cobolli.
Hopes are obviously different between those who will try to be great protagonists, especially Sinner and Musetti, and those who, on the other hand, as if they had already won with access to the scoreboard like Cobolli (who on Monday 29 May will face Carlos Alcarazdraw not easy at all) or vavassors. Three blues out of nine will play today. First of all, Lorenzo Musetti who will face the Swede Mikael Ymer, who three days ago became the protagonist of a madness in the match against Arthur Fils at the ATP 250 in Lyon. After a disputed ball and the break immediately, Ymer destroyed his racket on the judge's chair. Immediate disqualification for him after the intervention of the supervisor. In the draw, however, Lorenzo Sonego picked the American in the first round Ben Shelton, who compete for the second time in their career (the American won last August in Cincinnati). The Atlanta boy's serve and forehand could be put to the test by Sonego's grit. Finally, Arnaldi drew Daniel Elahi Galan, number 90 in the world.
It should be remembered that in the 122nd edition of the French slam the great absentee will be Rafa Nadal, reigning champion and winner of 14 editions). Spotlights on Carlos Alcaraz, who returned to the top of the ATP ranking last Monday, but also on Novak Djokovic who is hunting for 23 Grand Slams to detach Nadal in the all-time rankings. Among the expected protagonists also Daniil Medvedev, winner of the Masters 1000 in Rome, and Jannik Sinner who never went beyond the quarterfinals in Paris. As for the women's draw, two Italians are on the field today: Sara Errani and Camila Giorgi, who will challenge respectively the Swiss Jil Teichmann and the French Alize Cornet. Roland Garros will be a Discovery exclusive. The reference channels on the Sky bouquet will be 210 and 211, i.e. Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2, streaming on Discovery Plus and Dazn.
