Rafael Nadal's French Open Era Likely Ends with First-Round Defeat to Alexander Zverev

Posted : 28 May 2024

Rafael Nadal's legendary French Open career possibly came to an end as he suffered a surprising first-round defeat to Alexander Zverev. The 14-time champion, turning 38 soon, lost in straight sets, marking his first-ever opening-round loss at Roland Garros. Despite the defeat, Nadal remained uncertain about his future in tennis, acknowledging the emotional difficulty of potentially bidding farewell to the tournament he loves the most.


Despite his loss, Nadal expressed hopes of returning to Paris for the Olympics, indicating his continued motivation for the sport. Plagued by injuries and unseeded, Nadal's defeat raised questions about his future endeavors in tennis, especially with his ranking now at 275.


In another match, Italian Jannik Sinner showcased his recovery from injury issues with a comfortable victory over Christopher Eubanks, advancing to the second round. Sinner's win underlined his fitness despite recent setbacks, setting up a promising encounter with French veteran Richard Gasquet.


Elsewhere, Stefanos Tsitsipas cruised into the second round with a straight-sets win over Marton Fucsovics, while American Ben Shelton overcame Frenchman Hugo Gaston in a thrilling encounter, overcoming both rain interruptions and a vocal home crowd to secure victory.
