Carlos Alcaraz bids to reach his first Roland Garros semi-final. To do that the top seed has to get past the fifth seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas. Doing so will then set up a last four match against either third seeded Novak Djokovic or Karen Khachanov who is the 11th seed at Roland Garros. Alcaraz missed the first Grand Slam of the year due to injury. If he can win this French Open, it'll be his second successive Grand Slam title after winning last year's US Open. He may have made a late start to this year but he's been in fantastic form since his return. Three clay court titles have been won and another final reached. That's taken him back to the number one spot in the world rankings. This tournament has seen him lose just one set in four matches. Taro Daniel took a set off him in the second round but no one has got close since. Alcaraz has won nine sets in which his opponent hasn't won more than two games. 17th seeded Lorenzo Musetti only took seven games off him in the last round.
Two years ago Stefanos Tsitsipas reached the Roland Garros final. He began this year's French Open ranked fifth and has risen a place in the live list. He's had a very consistent clay court season so far. One final has been reached and that saw him lose the Barcelona final to Alcaraz. That followed a failed attempt to win a third successive Monte Carlo Masters. He's consistent but still looking for his first clay court title of the year and his first win of a Grand Slam event. On his way to the last eight at Roland Garros he's dropped just one set. That was in his opening round match against Jir Vesely. It's not been too hard a draw for him and he is facing a seeded opponent for the first time in this tournament. He's never beaten Alcaraz with four straight defeats, two of them on clay. Our tip is for Alcaraz to win this in straight sets..
