Who to go to the last square? This Tuesday, the level may go up a notch on the courts of Roland-Garros. For this first day of the quarter-finals, the Parisian public may attend big fights. If Novak Djokovic will enter the first in the dance in the men by facing the Russian Karen Khachanov, the eyes will necessarily be turned to the Philippe Chatrier who will be the arena of the big poster between the world number 1 Carlos Alcaraz and the Greek Stéfanos Tsitsipàs (5th). An opposition that could extend into the night.
