The 2023 Roland-Garros Tournament
The 2023 Roland-Garros tournament has again provided its share of surprises. As every year, the Paris Grand Slam tournament is one of the events of the year in the world of tennis and all players dream of lifting the Musketeers Cup in the final. Unfortunately, the competition started with very bad news and the announcement of the withdrawal of the master of the house, Rafael Nadal.
Novak Djokovic Takes Advantage of the Absence of Rafael Nadal
Exit Rafael Nadal and place to Novak Djokovic, his eternal rival. Faced with the absence of the Spaniard, the Serb rubbed his hands and took advantage of it to pocket his third title on the Paris clay, but above all his 23rd Grand Slam title. A record never before achieved in men’s tennis and which further entrenches the 36-year-old tennis player in the legend of his sport. Easily victorious over Casper Ruud in the final, he passed his biggest test in the semi-final, where he faced the new gem of world tennis, Carlos Alcaraz.
Carlos Alcaraz: The Worthy Heir of Rafael Nadal
The 20-year-old Spaniard has already won the US Open once and many see him as the worthy heir of Rafael Nadal. Unfortunately, the one nicknamed Carlitos could only hold two sets against Djokovic, before completely running out of energy. Victim of cramps in all parts of his body, he was swept away by the Serb, who did not hesitate to make the young Spaniard run, who could no longer move forward. During a debate on the Super Moscato Show on RMC this Wednesday 14 June, Marion Bartoli returned to the problems of Carlos Alcaraz and for her the problem is not in the head. “I can’t say it’s a mental or psychological failure,” she explains, before indicating that the future star of tennis had “a physical failure”, caused by the heat that day and the pressure on his shoulders. A complicated Roland-Garros therefore for Carlos Alcaraz, who is only 20 years old and should have many more opportunities to win in the future!
