After years of false starts, men’s tennis finally has a proper war between the generations. Besides chasing the Grand Slam, Djokovic was aiming to extinguish the dreams of another heralded upstart challenging his hold on the game, which, so far, has amounted to 23 Grand Slam tournament titles. Alcaraz won the U.S. Open last year in thrilling, acrobatic fashion, serving notice that men’s tennis was going to be shaken up by an unusual talent. This year, he withdrew from the Australian Open to nurse an injury and was defeated by Djokovic in the semifinals at the French Open. “It’s great for the new generation,” Alcaraz said, “to see me beating him and making them think that they are capable to do it.”

While praising Alcaraz for his “great” performance, Tsitsipas says he was hampered by his own preparation and disrupted sleep cycle. “One thing that I’m going to try to avoid in the future is to have melatonin pills [sleeping pills] and naps before matches because it clearly doesn’t seem to be working,” Tsitsipas told reporters. Like the US Open and Australian Open, Roland-Garros has regularly featured night sessions which, despite generating a great atmosphere under the lights, means matches can finish past midnight. So it’s gonna be a great match for me.”
