What does this mean for the Brits?

The best British result in recent years was Johanna Konta’s run to the semi-final in 2019, and the British number one and current US Open champion Raducanu is still (literally) finding her feet on the clay.

Andy Murray’s best performance was to reach the final in 2016, and best hopes lie with Norrie who us currently making up for a slow start with a decent run in Lyon, to reach the final.

Cameron Norrie [10] – Path to the Final

  • R1: Manuel Guinard [W] | H2H: First Meeting
  • R2: Denis Kudla | H2H: Tied at 1-1 (tour level)
  • R3: Karen Khachanov [21] | H2H: Norrie leads 3-2
  • R4: Carlos Alcaraz [6] | H2H: Alcaraz leads 3-0
  • QF: Alexander Zverev [3] H2H: Zverev leads 3-0 (tour level)
  • SF: Novak Djokovic [1] | H2H: Djokovic leads 1-0
  • F: Daniil Medvedev [2] | H2H: Medvedev leads 1-0

A spot in the second week for the British No. 1 could be tricky – as Carlos Alcaraz is arguably the man to watch over this next fortnight.

Emma Raducanu [12] – Path to Final

  • R1: Qualifier | H2H:
  • R2: Aliaksandra Sasnovich | H2H: Sasnovich leads 1-0
  • R3: Angelique Kerber [21] | H2H: First Meeting
  • R4: Ons Jabeur [6] | H2H: First Meeting
  • QF: Maria Sakkari [4] | H2H: Raducanu leads 1-0
  • SF: Barbora Krejcikova [2] | H2H: First Meeting
  • F: Iga Swiatek [1] | H2H: Swiatek leads 1-0

From winning her first senior match on clay to embarking on a couple of confidence building runs in Stuttgart, it is still effectively a free hit for British No. 1 Raducanu.

The build up of niggling injuries for someone in their first full tour season is to be expected – but here’s hoping Raducanu can pick up a few wins before moving on to the grass.

Dan Evans [29] – Path to Final

  • R1: Francisco Cerundolo | H2H: First Meeting
  • R2: James Duckworth | H2H: Evans leads 1-0 (Challenger)
  • R3: Stefanos Tsitsipas [4] | H2H: Tsitsipas leads 3-0
  • R4: Denis Shapovalov [14] | H2H: Evans leads 2-1(tour level)
  • QF: Casper Ruud [8] | H2H: Ruud leads 1-0
  • SF: Daniil Medvedev [2] | H2H: Medvedev leads 1-0
  • F: Novak Djokovic [1] | H2H: Evans leads 1-0

Last year was a remarkable year for Evans on the clay – not necessarily a surface you would say is his best. Still – if he makes it past last year’s finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas, et al, he has the knowledge that he has beaten defending Novak Djokovic – on clay!

Heather Watson – Path to Final

  • R1: Elsa Jacquemot [W] | H2H: First Meeting
  • R2: Angelique Kerber [21] | H2H: Kerber leads 3-0
  • R3: Emma Raducanu [12] | H2H: Watson leads 2-0 (Battle of the Brits)
  • R4: Ons Jabeur [6] | H2H: Jabeur leads 2-1
  • QF: Maria Sakkari [4] | H2H: Sakkari leads 2-0
  • SF: Barbora Krejcikova [2] | H2H: First Meeting
  • F: Iga Swiatek [1] | H2H: Swiatek leads 2-0

It continues to be a tough grind for Watson, who is hunting for some consistency, and faces an uphill task, in a quarter that contains all the women’s British interest.

Harriet Dart – Path to Final

  • R1: Martina Trevisan [W] | H2H: First Meeting
  • R2: Ons Jabeur [6] | H2H: Jabeur leads 1-0
  • R3: Petra Kvitova [32] | H2H: First Meeting
  • R4: Emma Raducanu [12] | H2H: Dart leads 1-0 (tour level)
  • QF: Maria Sakkari [4] | H2H: Sakkari leads 1-0 (ITF)
  • SF: Barbora Krejcikova [2] | H2H: First Meeting
  • F: Iga Swiatek [1] | H2H: Swiatek leads 1-0

Dart, along with Evans, has arguably the hardest draw from the Brits but she will better her previous best of going out in the qualifying rounds.


Roland Garros takes place between 22 May – 5 June.
