2022 French Open Predictions

Intro: Spring is in the air, which also means the clay court season for the ATP and WTA tours has begun. The second grand slam of the year, the French Open (aka Roland Garros), will be held in Paris from May 22 to June 5, 2022. 

Favorites for the Men’s Draw: Rafael Nadal won his 21st grand slam title at the Australian Open earlier this year, has an astounding 105-3 win/loss record at Roland Garros, and has won the French Open a record 13 times. However, he is coming off a stress fracture to his rib suffered at Indian Wells. It is not 100% clear whether world number one Novak Djokovic will be allowed to play in France due to the country’s strict vaccination policies and new restrictions that could arise should the virus situation worsen before the tournament. Young phenom Carlos Alcaraz has momentum on his side, having won his first ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Miami and hoisting the title in Barcelona. World number five Stefanos Tsitsipas recently defended his ATP 1000 Masters title at Monte Carlo and reached the finals of the French Open in 2021.

My pick: The French Open is still his to lose for the king of clay, Rafael Nadal. Until someone can convincingly knock him off on his favorite surface, Nadal is still the odds on favorite to win Roland Garros for a 14th time. He seems to bring out his best when faced with adversity, and his mental fortitude is second to none. 

Favorites of the Women’s Draw: With Ash Barty having sadly retired and abdicated her throne, Iga Swiatek has claimed the world number one in women’s tennis. She won the French Open in 2020, and won the “Sunshine Double” (back-to-back WTA 1000 titles in Indian Wells and Miami) in 2022. Her aggressive, all-court style of play is well suited for the red clay courts of Roland Garros. Maria Sakkari, who is currently number five in the world, made the semifinals of the French Open and U.S. Open in 2021. She can go as far as her strong serve can take her. Barbora Krejcikova is the defending French Open champion, and is actually an eight-time grand slam winner (seven in women’s and mixed doubles).

My pick: Her talent is undeniable, and Swiatek has all the confidence in the world right now. She is on a hot streak, having won 23 matches in a row, and adding the WTA 500 level event in Stuttgart earlier this month.
