The match

Alexander Zverev will on Saturday take on 12th seed Frances Tiafoe in the third round at the French Open. Despite winning his two rounds, Zverev has lost 630 ranking points and plummeted 28 places to 55th in the live ranking. This has been the story of the German’s season as before arriving in Paris he had also dropped about 40 places. Struggles with his fitness after an injury-riddled 2022 season are to blame for most of this. Having reached the semifinals here in the last two seasons, Zverev will aim at equaling this and reclaim those points. Having won six of seven encounters with Tiafoe, will be confident of getting past this round. Zverev overcame the challenge of Alex Molcan in the last round, and is yet to drop a set at Roland Garros.

Frances Tiafoe has dropped one set in Paris which was against the qualifier Aslan Karatsev in the second round. Forced to come back from losing the first set, Tiafoe won 3-1 and should have the adrenaline for his toughest match yet. The American has been in fine form on clay where his only title so far has come. He won in Houston for his second career tour title and first on clay. Before this season, Tiafoe had only managed one main draw win at Roland Garros. He has since won twice and has set a new personal record by advancing to this round. His win over Karatsev added 45 points to his ranking tally. If he manages another win, he will move up one place to 12th in the live ranking.
