When is the Djokovic-Davidovich game at Roland Garros played?

The match will be played, how could it be otherwise, on the Phillipe Chatrier center court, this Friday, June 2, not before two fifteen in the afternoon.

In the night shift of the tournament, the Serbian had to work against a solid rival, whom had defeated in the four previous appointmentsbut after giving up in the tiebreaker game of the first set, he fell apart.

The 36-year-old tennis player seeks his third title in Paris and the 23rd bigwhich would make him the man with the most, ahead of Rafa Nadal, with whom he is tied after winning the Australian Open this year.

Djokovic arrives with less shooting on clay than in other editions and without having raised any title on that surface.

But since his debut in Paris in 2005, he has fallen before the round of 16 only twice.

His rival to prevent him this season is a Davidovich who arrives in good shape after having passed his first two games with good play, against the young French Arthur Phils in the first round and Luca van Asche in the second, 6-4, 6-3 and 7-6(6).

The 24-year-old from Malaga and number 30 in the ranking, defeated the Serbian in the last duel between the two, in the Monte Carlo tournament last year, but lost the previous two rounds.
