Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz eye a maiden entry into French Open final.

Jannik Sinner improved on his perfect record at Grand Slams in 2024. At the French Open 2024 on Tuesday, he moved past Grigor Dimitrov with a straightforward win 6-2, 6-4, 7-6(3) to reach the semifinals in Paris for the first time. The Australian Open champion never let control of the match slip from his grasp, all through his two-hour, 30-minute win against first-time Roland Garros quarterfinalist Dimitrov.

The Italian had a chance to serve out the match at 5-4 in the third set, but instead, it moved into a tie-break. Sinner struck 29 winners and converted four breakpoints to improve to 4-1 in the pair’s head-to-head. 

Sinner is at 12-0 in majors this year and also took on the mantle of the new World No. 1. The Italian will play Carlos Alcaraz on Friday for a chance to play in the finals in Paris for the first time. 

Carlos Alcaraz maintained his mastery over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night to go up 6-0 in their head-to-head. The Spaniard made it to the semifinals for a second straight year thanks to his 6-3, 7-6(3), 6-4 victory on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

In a rematch of their 2023 Roland Garros quarter-final meeting, the No. #3 in the ATP Rankings saw off a late charge by Tsitsipas after wrapping up the first set in 33 minutes. Alcaraz asserted himself, taking a 3-0 lead in the second set before the Greek forced a tiebreak, but the change of fortunes was short lived as the Spaniard opened up a 5-1 lead in the tiebreak.  

Tsitsipas won 34 of 46 points (74%) at the net but failed to match Alcaraz from the baseline in the two-hour, 15-minute match.

Date: June 7t (Friday)

Time: TBD 

Venue: Stade Roland Garros, Paris

Carlos Alcaraz vs Jannik Sinner preview

Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz’s journey into the French Open semifinals saw them drop a set each. Sinner let go of a set in the fourth round against Corentin Moutet, and Alcaraz lost a set against Jesper de Jong in the second round. 

In a tournament emptied of the ‘Big 3,’ a new winner will be crowned as Roland Garros champion. The last time this happened was in 2015 when Stan Wawrinka claimed the trophy. 

Alcaraz’s win brought up his 50th Grand Slam win, even as it has been nearly a year since the Spaniard won at a major. The last trophy he lifted was at Wimbledon last July in a gripping five-setter against Novak Djokovic.

It is interesting that being a clay-court specialist, Alcaraz has yet to reach the French Open final. Sinner is in the same boat, leaving two ambitious players competing for the trophy.

Head-to-head records

Matches – 9

Carlos Alcaraz – 5

Jannik Sinner – 4

The rivalry between Alcaraz and Sinner goes back to their Challenger days. Their first match was in Alicante, Spain, in the Challenger circuit and the most recent in Indian Wells. Alcaraz won both. Their head-to-head on the ATP tour is even at 4-4. More details here.

Where and how to watch live streaming and TV broadcast of Carlos Alcaraz vs Jannik Sinner, French Open 2024, semi-final match in India?

The French Open semi-final between Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz will beam live from Roland Garros on the Sony Ten Network. Fans can tune into Sony Ten 5 and Sony Ten 2 SD/HD channels to catch the live action. The network’s streaming service, SonyLiv, will also broadcast the event online for Indian viewers.

Prediction

With a spot in the French Open 2024 finals on the line, the semi-final clash is a high stakes match for Sinner and Alcaraz. Both players sat out of tournaments nursing injuries earlier this year – Alcaraz to his right arm and Sinner to his hip. 

Sinner is now 33-2 overall and 11-1 on clay in the ongoing season, while Alcaraz is on 23-5 and 10-3. Alcaraz has won 8 of 10 previous matches played. For Sinner, that number stands at 9 of 10 games. Alcaraz clearly prefers clay, as he won seven tournaments on the surface to just one by Sinner.

When Sinner and Alcaraz lock horns on Friday, the gloves will be off as both players have a shot at making history. Alcaraz will become the youngest player since Rafael Nadal to lift the French Open trophy. Nadal first won in Paris at age 19 in 2005. Should Sinner win, he will become the first Italian to do so since Adriano Panatta in 1976.

Result: Carlos Alcaraz to win in five sets.
