Nadal, Djokovic, Alcaraz and the rising Frenchwoman aka Diane Parry.

The program is rich this Friday for the continuation and end of the third round at Roland-Garros with perhaps some nice surprises.

The poster of the day

For tennis fans, it's a duel that speaks.

From 11 a.m. on the Simonne Mathieu court, Gregor Dimitrov will challenge Diego Schwartzman.

A fine duel between the Bulgarian who has been walking on water since the start of the tournament and the Argentinian, semi-finalist of the tournament in 2020 and in the top 8 last year, who qualified in 5 sets and in the difficulty in the previous round.

A good match to find out what Dimitrov really has in his stomach after a dazzling debut.

Today's favorites

It will be very heavy this Friday in the men's draw with no less than four big headliners.

Djokovic will open the ball of the favorites on the center against the Slovenian Bedene.

Nadal will follow on the Lenglen with a duel against the Dutchman Van de Zandschulp.

Just after the clay boss, still on the Lenglen, it will be the turn of Alexander Zverev, miraculous in the second round, to enter the track.

Finally, another miracle in the person of Carlos Alcaraz is scheduled this Friday for a night session against the American Sebastian Korda.

French of the day

A little sensation at the start of the tournament, we'll see if Diane Parry takes a new step this Friday.

Scheduled on the central, the only French player of the day will try to create a surprise against Sloane Stephens.

Roland-Garros finalist in 2018 and winner of the US Open in 2017, the American, who has fallen to 64th place in the world, has been much less in style lately;

After hitting the world number 2 in the first round, Diane Parry is no longer one feat away from reaching the round of 16 of the tournament.

Today's weather

Still no rain but still not crazy weather either.

Grisaille and 13 degrees in the morning for a good 22 degrees in the afternoon with beautiful clearings.

Fortunately, the sun will take its full place at the end of the day.

The daring tip of the day

And if it was already the end for Carlos Alcaraz?

Passed very close to the precipice on Wednesday after having had a match point against him, the Spaniard should have a hard time this Friday in a night session against Sebastian Korda.

The Czech is the only one to have hit the 19-year-old prodigy this year on clay.

It was in the first round of Monte Carlo in mid-April (7-6, 6-7, 6-3).

Bis repetita at Roland-Garros?

In any case, we believe in it.
