Stefanos Tsitsipas starts his quest for redemption at the French Open with a tough First Round clash against Lorenzo Musetti at Roland Garros on Tuesday.
Tsitsipas was left to rue what could have been on his last visit to Roland Garros, squandering a two-set lead in the final to Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic continues to be a nemesis for the Greek star – who was once again denied in the final of the Italian Open last week, though he has secured back-to-back titles at the Monte-Carlo Masters.
The world number four remains in search of an elusive maiden major, having lost in the Semi-Finals of the Australian Open earlier this year.
This, however, could perhaps represent Tsitsipas’ best chance of ending the drought given that he is situated in the opposite half of the draw to Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Alexander Zverev and Carlos Alcaraz.
His only First Round defeat at the French Open came on debut in 2017, but the 23-year-old has been handed a tricky opener this time around in the shape of world number 51 Musetti.
Musetti reached the Fourth Round of the French Open last year – his best run in a Grand Slam to date – and like Tsitsipas, let a two-set lead slip to eventual champion Djokovic for what would have been the biggest win of his career so far.
The Italian made the Third Round of both the Monte-Carlo Masters and Madrid Open and is now vying for a first win over Tsitsipas at the third attempt.
Either Lucas Pouille or Zdeněk Kolář will await the winner in the Second Round later in the week.
Musetti v Tsitsipas is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 7.45pm BST.
