Djokovic & Nadal remain on course at French Open

French Open 2022
Dates: May 22–Jun 5  
Venue: Roland Garros, Paris

Defending champion Novak Djokovic produced another outstanding display as he reached the French Open fourth round without dropping a set all week.

Serbia's Djokovic, 34, won 6-3 6-3 6-2 – saving one break point in the third set – against Slovenia's Aljaz Bedene.

The top seed remains on course for a potential quarter-final meeting with Spain's 13-time champion Rafael Nadal.

Nadal, 35, also moved into the last 16 on Friday with a 6-3 6-2 6-4 win over Dutch opponent Botic van de Zandschulp.

Nadal, who was beaten by Djokovic in a gripping semi-final last year, will face Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime in Paris on Sunday.

An intriguing element to that match is that Toni Nadal – Rafael's uncle, who coached him to 16 of his 21 major titles – is part of ninth seed Auger-Aliassime's team.
