The past 10 days of competition at the 2022 French Open have been nothing short of a thrill.

En route to the semifinals, there have been a plethora of upsets on both the men’s and women’s sides.

In the men’s tournament, tennis fans in Paris saw No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic, No. 2 Daniil Medvedev and No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas dispatched from the draw early on. In the women’s tournament, No. 2 Barbora Krejčíková, No. 3 Paula Badosa and No. 4 Maria Sakkari were all ousted from singles play in week 1.

For fans in the U.S., there is a lone American player left in the draw – Coco Gauff. The impressive 18-year-old has all the tricks up her sleeve and celebrated her high school graduation in Paris right before the Grand Slam started.

Another exciting storyline is No. 1 Iga Świątek, who has won 34 consecutive matches this year. The 21-year-old dropped one set earlier in the tournament but is showing no signs of being stopped in Paris.

 

Lastly, Rafael Nadal, the “King of Clay” dominated No. 1 Djokovic in the quarterfinal on Tuesday night, becoming one set closer to his 14th French Open title and 22nd slam overall. The Spaniard showed true comfort on the slow, red clay surface and looked as fit as ever.
