Djokovic will play for the second title in Paris, which would be his 19th Grand Slam.

On one side of the net will be Djokovic and his 18 Grand Slam titles, one of them Roland Garros in 2016; on the other Tsitsipas, with a balance of three lost semifinals and one won in the Grand Slam (on Friday against Alexander Zverev). On the one hand 82 titles in the circuit, of which 36 in Masters 1000, and on the other 7 titles.
On the one hand the prospect of approaching one of the record of 20 Grand Slam titles held jointly by Nadal and Roger Federer, on the other the dream of a first ‘Big’ title weeks after having debuted at Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo.
Not to mention that Djokovic can become the first player of the Open era (since 1968), and the third after Roy Emerson and Rod Laver, to conquer each of the four ‘Big’ at least twice.
But since the start of the season, Tsitsipas is the player who has won the most matches (39), also on clay (22). It is also the leader of the Race, the classification of the season.
Last year the Greek won two sets to ‘Djoko’ in his semifinal match, but, given what happened on Friday, it is not unreasonable to give a favorite role to the world No. 1 given his level of play and his relentless will . Every time the young Greek could have used up his capital of ambition with the move to his first final.
