Nadal is joined by 20-time Grand Slam singles champion and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who looks to defend his 2021 Roland-Garros title, and World No. 2 and reigning U.S. Open champion Daniil Medvedev. World No. 3 Alexander Zverev, World No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas, who lost to Djokovic in last year’s Roland-Garros final, and World No. 6 Carlos Alcaraz also remain in contention. American John Isner won his second-round match over Grégoire Barrère on Wednesday and is one of four American men to advance to the third round.

NBC Sports and Roland-Garros: In 1975, NBC became the first American television network to provide coverage of the French Open when the network signed a three-year deal with the French Tennis Federation. The tournament was covered by CBS from 1980-82 and returned to NBC in 1983, where it has remained since. This is NBC Sports’ 40th consecutive year presenting the event.
