What to expect from the French Open 2021 draw?

A draw largely reveals the potential opponents a player has to face to win the Roland Garros title. All the eyes will be on Rafael Nadal, who, for a change, is not one of the top two seeds this time. He is the third-seeded player after Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev.

In a situation like this, there are high chances that the World No. 3 Nadal might have to face Djoker in the semi-finals. However, Rafa has faced a similar situation in the past as well. Before this, he began as the third seed in 2013 where he crushed the Serbian legend in the semis and then went on to defeat David Ferrer in the finals.

The women’s draw will not be any less intriguing. Since Simona Halep has withdrawn from the tournament and with Ashleigh Barty going through an arm injury, all eyes will be on the 20-year-old Iga Swiatek.

Whatever be the draw, fans are quite exhilarated about the second major of the year. Who will emerge as the winner of the French Open 2021?
