As of Tuesday, April 18th, the Roland Garros entry list has been confirmed. The tournament is still about five or six weeks away, at the time of writing. But already, the build-up to the 2023 French Open is well underway. I say that because the first of three clay court Masters 1000 events has recently been wrapped up in Monte Carlo. And naturally, this means that there are two more of these major events before the 2023 Roland Garros tournament.
Between these bigger events, there are a fair few 500 and 250 tournaments scheduled too. So it’s all hands on deck for the top players who are hoping for an impressive run in the French Capital. Anyway, I could talk about the build-up for the French Open all day. But rather than cover the many different topics that are up for discussion prior to the second Grand Slam of the year, here I want to talk about the confirmed entrants for Roland Garros 2023.
As mentioned above, the confirmed entrants were only released on Tuesday, April 18th. So this information is fresh out of the blocks, which is why I want to give you the scoop right now.
2023 French Open Entry List – All You Need to Know
In case you missed the news about the initial entry list for the French Open, I’m glad you are here. But just to reiterate, while the names I am about to run through are on the entry list, this doesn’t guarantee their participation. In fact, it just means that they have officially entered the tournament, which is still exciting enough, in my opinion. Therefore, without further ado, let me quickly run through some key information relating to the entry list for Roland Garros.
2023 Roland Garros – Confirmed Entrants
With the French Open being one of four Grand Slams on the ATP Tour, the biggest names in tennis have entered, of course. And following the official announcement of confirmed entrants, I can tell you that Nadal, Djokovic, and Alcaraz are the biggest names that are in. However, many other top names are in the mix too. These include Medvedev, Rublev, Rune, Tsitsipas, Sinner, and the runner-up from 2022, Casper Ruud.
With these names on the list, the 2023 French Open promises to be another fantastic tournament. Yet all eyes will no doubt be watching the inevitable battle among the top three contenders – Djokovic, Alcaraz, and Nadal. Two of these guys are trying to extend their record-breaking careers, and Alcaraz is trying to disrupt this dynamic duo.
Key Dates and Cut-off Points
If you are hoping to catch the action at Roland Garros this year, you should know the dates of the tournament. On that note, the 2023 French Open will run from May 28th to June 11th, which is when the men’s final will be played. As for the cut-off points, this is set at 98 in terms of the ATP rankings. And currently, this puts top guys like Fognini and Thiem out of the running for a main draw position.
This is something that I will be monitoring closely over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
