Nadal & Tsitsipas Among Stars Training At Roland Garros
Nadal practised on Court Philippe Chatrier Wednesday with fellow Spaniard Jaume Munar, who trains at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar. Tsitsipas also had time on the stadium court, where he greeted the 13-time champion.
Nadal will try to extend his record of Grand Slam titles and Roland Garros trophies to 22 and 14, respectively, over the coming fortnight. The lefty is 105-3 at the event, where last year he lost in the semi-finals against eventual champion Novak Djokovic.
Tsitsipas is back at the site of his greatest heartbreak. In last year's championship match on the Paris clay, the Greek led Djokovic 7-6(6), 6-2 before falling in five sets. That was Tsitsipas' first major final.
Others firing up in Paris include two-time Nitto ATP Finals champion Alexander Zverev, Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime and Italian Jannik Sinner. They will learn their path through the field on Thursday evening, when the singles draw will be made.
