The Men’s Big Three Roll On In Paris

Jun 3, 2019

The first week of the 2019 Roland Garros French Open Championships has now been completed and we are down to the last eight in the respective men’s and women’s singles championships, as is normally the case in major events there has been a number of upsets throughout the first week in Paris, one thing that is yet to change however is the dominance of the big three in men’s tennis, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have steamrolled their way through the men’s draw thus far and all three players look likely to progress to the final four at RG, Nadal and Federer could be on course for a semi-final showdown if the seeds hold.

The men’s quarter-final line-up includes six of the top eight seeded players in the tournament, while the women’s draw has produced far more upsets with only three of the top eight seeded players remaining, defending champion Simona Halep is in fact the only seeded player among the top four women’s seeds still alive in the event, the women’s draw also includes two unseeded players (Amanda Anisimova & Marketa Vondrousova) in the last eight unlike the men’s championships where all eight players are seeded, Karen Khachanov (10) and Stan Wawrinka (24) are the only two men’s players seeded outside the top eight.

Djokovic, Nadal and Federer continue to amaze tennis fans around the world with their dominance in such a highly competitive sport, father time will eventually catch up with all three men, but each time their expected fall from grace is mentioned they always seem to come back from adversity and produce stunning results, it’s a given that their dominance won’t continue forever, but the trio have been so dominant over many many years it almost seems like most tennis fans just expect it to continue, who would bet against one of the famous trio lifting the La Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy on Championship Sunday, not too many I would suggest.
