MIND THE GAP… Nadal is currently 3rd on the Open Era list for the largest gap between first and most recent Grand Slam title wins. Roger Federer and Serena Williams are the only players whose Grand Slam title wins have spanned a longer period. Maria Sharapova could overtake Nadal if she wins the women’s singles title here 13 years and 11 months after her first major victory, while Nadal’s Grand Slam title-winning span will increase to 13 years if he wins the title here.

NADAL OR DJOKOVIC TO CLIMB ALL-TIME LIST?... Nadal could close the gap on Federer on the all-time list of Grand Slam men’s singles title winners if he wins an 11th Roland Garros title and takes his tally of Grand Slam singles titles to 17. If Novak Djokovic wins the title, the Serb will take sole occupancy of 4th place ahead of Roy Emerson on the list for most Grand Slam titles.

NO. 1 RANKING UPDATE Nadal must win the title here to retain the No. 1 ranking when the new ATP rankings are released on Monday 11 June. Federer will return to No. 1 if Nadal fails to do so.
 
DJOKOVIC EYES CAREER GRAND SLAM DOUBLE… Djokovicis bidding to become the first man in the Open Era – and only the 3rd man in history – to win each of the 4 Grand Slam titles twice. Emerson and Rod Laver are the only players to have won each Grand Slam on 2 or more occasions. (NB While Laver completed the feat in 1969, some of the titles were won before the start of the Open Era)
 
FINAL MATCH-UPS…If Djokovic and Nadal reach the final here it will be the 25th time the pair have met in a Tour-level final, putting them top of the list for most Open Era Tour-level finals played against each other. (see table overleaf)

ZVEREV AIMS TO BE YOUNGEST SINCE DEL POTRO… At 21 years 51 days, No. 2 seed Alexander Zverev is looking to become the youngest Grand Slam men’s singles champion since Juan Martin del Potro won the US Open aged 20 years 355 days, and the youngest Roland Garros men’s singles champion since Nadal won the title here in 2007 aged 21 years 7 days. [NB Age calculated at the end of the tournament]
 
A NEW DAWN…? With Zverev the No. 2 seed here, this is the first time that a player other than the ‘Big 4’ of Federer, Djokovic, Andy Murray and Nadal has been among the top 2 seeds at Roland Garros since 2005, when Federer and Andy Roddick were seeded No. 1 and No. 2 respectively. It is the first time that a player outside the ‘Big 4’ has been seeded No. 1 or No. 2 at Grand Slam since the 2006 Australian Open, when Federer and Roddick were also the top 2 seeds.
 
…OR A FEDERER-NADAL RESURGENCE? If Nadal wins the title here, it will be the 6th consecutive Grand Slam title that has been won by either Federer or Nadal – which would equal the 2nd-longest streak of Grand Slam titles won exclusively by the pair.

DIMITROV SEEKS MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH…No. 4 seed Grigor Dimitrov is bidding to win his first Grand Slam title on his 31st main draw appearance at a major.

Tomas Berdych (58th Grand Slam appearance), Richard Gasquet (54), Gael Monfils (45), Sam Querrey (45), John Isner (40) and Kevin Anderson (36) are among the players who would also enter the top 5 of the list should they claim their first major crown here.

35 YEARS SINCE A FRENCH WINNER… When Marcel Bernard won the men’s singles title at Roland Garros in 1946, it marked the 9th victory by a Frenchman in 16 tournaments here after the event went international. However since then, Yannick Noah is the only Frenchman to win his home Slam, lifting the title in 1983. In fact, he is the only French Grand Slam men’s singles champion in the Open Era. The last French finalist at Roland Garros was Henri Leconte in 1988. At No. 16, Lucas Pouille is the highest-ranked Frenchman in the main draw. (see table overleaf)

NADAL AND ZVEREV LEAD ROLAND GARROS WARM-UP... Nadal (Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome) and Zverev (Munich and Madrid) are the only players to have won multiple clay court titles this year.Nadal has won multiple titles on clay prior to Roland Garros in 13 of the last 14 years. (NB Written prior to the conclusion of the tournaments in Geneva and Lyon)
 
NADAL AIMS TO CONTINUE DOMINANT SEASON ON CLAY... Nadal enters Roland Garros with a 19-1 win-loss record on clay so far this year having won 3 of the 4 four clay court tournaments that he has entered, with his only loss coming against Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals in Madrid. It is the second successive year he has lost only one match on clay coming into Roland Garros.
 
Nadal’s defeat to Thiem ended a 21-match winning streak on clay that began at 2017 Roland Garros, during which he set the Open Era record for most consecutive sets won on a single surface with 50, surpassing John McEnroe’s 49 straight sets on carpet in 1984. During this run he also recorded his 400th Tour-level clay court match-win. (see table overleaf)

NO CHANCE OF A MELBOURNE-PARIS DOUBLEFor a 2nd consecutive year Federer misses out on the chance to become the 10th man in history to hold the first 2 legs of the calendar Grand Slam after announcing he would not compete during the clay court season on 26 March. It is only the 2nd time the reigning men’s singles champion at the Australian Open has missed the subsequent Roland Garros since 1996, when Boris Becker did not play in Paris.
 
DEFENDING THE TITLE… Nadal tops the list for most successful title defences at a single Grand Slam event in the Open Era, with 7. The Roland Garros men’s singles title has been successfully defended on 16 occasions in the Open Era, compared to 18 at Wimbledon, 13 at the Australian Open and 12 at the US Open.

PICKING A WINNER...In the Open Era, 33 of the 50 Roland Garros champions entered the event having won at least one clay court title in the months leading up to Roland Garros. In 2018, 11 men have already won clay court titles – Pablo Andujar, Roberto Carballes Baena, Marco Cecchinato, Taro Daniel (who lost in qualifying), Fabio Fognini, Steve Johnson, Rafael Nadal, Diego Schwartzman, Joao Sousa, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev. Nadal and Zverev are the only players to have won multiple clay court titles this year. (NB Written prior to the conclusion of the tournaments in Geneva and Lyon)
 
Thomas Muster (in 1995) and Nadal in (2005 and 2013) have won the most titles on clay prior to winning here – both winning 5 clay court titles before triumphing at Roland Garros.
 
However, in the Open Era, 17 of the 50 French Open champions did not win a clay court title before coming here. In 2015, Wawrinka became the first to win the Roland Garros title without winning a clay-court warm up tournament since Gaston Gaudio in 2004.

HOW HAS THE TOP SEED FARED AT ROLAND GARROS?... The top seed has won the title on just 14 occasions in the 50 Roland Garros tournaments played since 1968. This is the least successful performance by the top seed at any of the Grand Slam events. In the Open Era, the top seed has had most success at Wimbledon, triumphing 21 times.
 
The No. 1 seed has won the title at Roland Garros on just 3 occasions in the last 15 years, with Nadal triumphing as top seed here in 2011 and 2014, and Djokovic winning as top seed in 2016. Overall, in the 87 French Championships played since seeding began here in 1925, the top seed has won the title 27 times. The only No. 1 seed to lose in the 1st round here since 1925 is Stefan Edberg in 1990.

BEST MATE… Mate Pavic enters 2018 Roland Garros as the No. 1 ranked doubles player and the youngest doubles No. 1 since Todd Woodbridge in 1996. Pavic and partner Oliver Marach won the Australian Open men’s doubles title in January and are bidding to become just the 2nd doubles team in the Open Era to hold the first 2 legs of the calendar Grand Slam, after Bob and Mike Bryan in 2013.
 
BRYANS’ 19-YEAR STREAK ENDS… The Bryan brothers’ record streak of 76 Grand Slam men’s doubles appearances comes to an end after Bob withdrew due to a hip injury. Prior to this tournament they had appeared at every Grand Slam event since 1999 Roland Garros. Mike will play alongside Sam Querrey at this year’s event – the first time he has partnered anyone other than Bob in the men’s doubles at a Grand Slam.

DOUBLES VARIETY… 15 different teams have won the last 18 Grand Slam doubles titles – since the Bryans won 4 consecutive Grand Slam doubles titles from the 2012 US Open-2013 Wimbledon. The only pairs to have won multiple major doubles titles in that time are Pierre-Hugues Herbert/Nicolas Mahut (2015 US Open, 2016 Wimbledon), Jamie Murray/Bruno Soares (2016 Australian Open, 2016 US Open) and Jean-Julien Rojer/Horia Tecau (2015 Wimbledon, 2017 US Open).
 
MAHUT EXTENDS WILD CARD RECORD…Mahut receives a Grand Slam main draw wild card for the 12th occasion, extending his record for most Grand Slam appearances as a wild card. He also holds the record for most wild cards at Roland Garros, with 8.
 
He is one of 6 French players to receive a wild card into the main draw, alongside Gregoire Barrere, Elliot Benchetrit, Calvin Hemery, Maxime Janvier and Corentin Moutet. Australian Alex de Minaur and American Noah Rubin received wild cards under the French Tennis Federation’s reciprocal agreements with Tennis Australia and the USTA.
