Djokovic, Nadal & Federer Lead Top 10 Seeds To Perfect 30 At Roland Garros

Top 10 seeds through to major Round of 16 for third time in Open Era

History has been made in the first week at Roland Garros. You can say that the Top 10 seeds have been a ‘Perfect 10’.

The Top 10 seeds of the singles draw are into the Round of 16 at a Grand Slam for just the third time in the Open Era. It is the first time this has occurred since the 1970 Australian Open, which was a 48-player draw. The only other time the Top 10 seeds were perfect through three rounds was 50 years ago at 1969 Roland Garros.

Top seed Novak Djokovic, 11-time champion Rafael Nadal and 2009 titlist Roger Federer have led the pack on the Parisian terre battue, winning 27 of 28 sets played between them.

“It's pretty unique,” 2018 finalist and fourth seed Thiem said of the Top 10 seeds going 30-0 through three rounds. “[It’s just the] third time in the Open Era, which surprises me a lot, actually.

“Many of the guys who are Top 10 seeds, they had tough matches and of course some of them were also lucky to be in the fourth round,” Thiem said. “Maybe some balls here and there are different and it wouldn't be the case. But it's of course nice for the history books.”

Of the 16 players remaining, five of them are into the Round of 16 at Roland Garros for the first time, led by World No. 6 and reigning Next Gen ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas. The other four are World No. 38 Benoit Paire, No. 45 Jan-Lennard Struff, No. 68 Leonardo Mayer and No. 78 Juan Ignacio Londero.
