By India Today Sports Desk: Day 3 of the French Open 2023 promises exciting matches, featuring notable names such as defending champion Iga Swiatek, Rome winners Daniil Medvedev and Elina Rybakina, as well as rising star Holger Rune.

The women’s tournament has been dubbed “Iga vs the field,” with Swiatek’s exceptional comfort on clay. Meanwhile, Medvedev, once a skeptic of the red dirt, claimed his first clay title at the Italian Open.

Amidst the action, Gael Monfils, the French crowd favorite, is set to make his debut under the Court Philippe-Chatrier lights. Ranked No. 394 and seeking his first win of the season, the 36-year-old Monfils faces a tough challenge from the young Argentine Sebastian Baez, who pushed Alexander Zverev to the edge in a thrilling five-set match last year.

Another highly anticipated clash awaits between Victoria Azarenka and Bianca Andreescu. Despite both being Grand Slam champions, neither player has a strong past in Paris. Azarenka, known for her hard-charging baseline game, has only reached the Roland-Garros semi-finals once in her 13 appearances. Andreescu, currently ranked 42nd, aims to overcome her injury struggles and capitalize on her counter-punching style.

Additionally, returning French Open finalists Casper Ruud and Coco Gauff will hope to find magic in the City of Light. Both players, who finished as runners-up in the previous year, consider themselves outside favorites to claim the singles trophies. With exciting matches and the potential for upsets, Tuesday (May 30) promises to captivate tennis fans worldwide.

WHERE TO WATCH?

Viewers in India can watch the Roland Garros action on Sony Ten. Fans can also livestream the matches on SonyLIV.
