Novak Djokovic who is the favorite going in to the French Open this week, will face former U.S Open champion Juan Martin del Potro when they meet on Friday.
This is only the third round, but it should be good for spectators to see a star-studded match so early in the tournament. The Argentine has won the Estoril Open a couple of weeks ago but had to withdraw from the Madrid Masters due to a hip injury. He only made the decision to play in Paris in the last week before the tournament and so far has defeated Ivo Karlovic of Croatia and Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia. Let’s hope we will see a good match from these two great champions and that we won’t be disappointed in the end by the on-court action.
You can catch the action on the Tennis Channel from 5 AM (EST) to 12 PM, and also on ESPN2 from 12 PM to 6:30 PM (EST). In Europe, the tennis will be shown on Eurosport.
