Live in Photographer | Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Carlos Alcaraz kick off the French Open

Will Novak Djokovic defend his title, Rafael Nadal win the title for the 14th time, beat teenager Carlos Alcaraz, or will Alexander Zverev win a Grand Slam for the first time?

There will be special French openings this year. Not only because of the stars, but also because of the new regulations.

In the future, she will play the tiebreak to ten points in Paris as well as at Wimbledon, in the US Open and the Australian Open with a score of 6:6 in the final round.

However, co-candidates Zverev and Alcaraz will do everything today (here’s Sunday’s schedule) to ensure that the fifth group is not in the first place.

  • right Now: Sloane Stephens (USA) – Julie Niemeyer (Germany) – 5:7
  • right Now: Hugo Delane (BOL) – Dominic Thiem (Australia). 63
  • right Now: Sorona Cersta (ROU/26) – Tatiana Maria (Germany) – 63 ,

  • About 6:00 pm: Juan Ignacio Londero (Argentina) – Carlos Alcaraz (ESP/6)

12:11 p.m. – Dylan – Tim – 6:3, 3:1

This does not look good for Tim at the moment. The Austrian also had to give up a service match in the second set. But of course nothing is lost here.

12:06 pm – Altmaier – Munnar – 1:6, 1:3

But so far, things haven’t gone according to plan with Daniel Altmaier. The German not only lost the first set to Jaume Munnar of Spain 1:6, but he also fell behind in the second set.

12:00 noon. Stevens Niemeyer 5-7

There is a winning group for Niemeyer! The German remains patient during the race and turns the second set ball for her with a fine shot to pass to make it 7:5.

11:57 AM Stephens Niemeyer 5-7

Julie Niemeyer smells the combination she won. The German actually worked to win the set with a score of 5:4, but then conceded in the second half. Now she has another chance with another break against Sloane Stephens at 6:5. At 30:30 she got the set ball with a big forehand winner. But she forgives it with a quick mistake. It’s about debuting.

11:55 a.m. – Dylan – Tim – 6:3

Dellien serves to win the group. With a solidly proven backhand, Tim sets the point at 30:30. But then Dylan shines with a very good backline and gets the set ball. Tim’s mistake follows in the cross to 6:3 for Dylan.

11:48 am – Kirstia – Maria – 6:3

The first group finished in sixth place. Tatiana Maria has to give up the role against Romanian Sorana Cerstia with a score of 3: 6.

11:47 AM – Dylan – Tim – 5:2

The transmission is one of Dylan’s best weapons to date. The first service so far was over 90 per cent. And while he doesn’t put it particularly difficult, he puts it in such a way that Tim has a hard time getting the ball into the opponent’s court. So Dylan often scored even with tighter points. 5:2 for Bolivia.

11:38AM – Dylan – Tim – 4:1

Now Tim inhale re-break. With the winner in the net, Vienna makes the point 40:40 when his opponent sends. But Dylan holds his dispatch. With the game ball, Tim cleverly lured into the net by stopping him and turning with the pass ball.

11:33 a.m. – Dylan – Tim – 3:1

Tim’s long rope is attached to the edge of the net. Three break points for Dylan. And in the third, Tim completely bypasses the backhand from half the field and the ball flies away. 3:1 for Dylan. It was in the air.

11:28 AM – Dylan – Tim – 2:1

Tim stayed calm and won his match to make the score 2-1. In general, Dellien gives a slightly more aggressive impression at the initial stage. Tim remains negative. But that’s no wonder considering his negative streak since his comeback. For him, it’s also about finding the rhythm of the game.

11:19 am – Dylan – Tim – 1:0

Tim struggled equally in his first service match. With his win with a forehand at the net, Dylan makes the point 40:40. Then Thiem missed the long streak and the Austrian broke the ball against him. The previous final qualifiers blocked it strongly from half the field.

11:11 am – Dylan – Tim – 1:0

Work begins at Roland-Garros. Dylan just won his first service match against Tim. A guy from Bolivia can be a very treacherous opponent, especially on the sand.

INFO – Germans on the first day

Four Germans are already working today. From a German point of view, the focus is on Olympic champion Alexander Zverev’s appearance against Sebastian Offner of Austria. The match should start in the late afternoon. But Jules Niemeyer, Tatjana Maria and Daniel Altmaier were already on duty at 11:00 AM.

Thiem fights negative series

Things get serious for Dominic Tim at 11:00 AM. The two-time French Open champion and former US Open champion has only suffered defeats since returning at the end of March – six defeats in total. At Roland-Garros, he now wants to break the curse and meet Bolivian Hugo Dellien in the first round.

EXCLUSIVE: Misha Zverev on Alex Zverev’s fortunes

Misha Zverev reveals on the Eurosport podcast Das Gelbee Foam Ball that the role of the favorite was controversially discussed at a joint dinner at Zverev’s camp. “Sasha said the bookmakers expect that Alcaraz will have the best chance of winning the French Open,” said Misha Zverev. But the fact that the star meteor from Murcia is now being treated as a promising candidate to win the Mosquier Cup upsets the Olympic champion. Then he said: ‘You know, when it was Nadal or Djokovic at that time, everything was fine. Now Alcaraz – no!’ Misha quotes his brother.
