Djokovic won the first point. The quarter-final match between Serb, No. 1 and defender of the title and Rafael Nadal will be played on match night, not before 8:45 pm, Prime Video will broadcast for free. The French Tennis Federation has issued a statement thanking the Amazon Channel for making it easier for all fans to enjoy the most anticipated matches of the tournament.

Prime Video’s strategy, which so far only broadcasts night meetings for subscribers, has been decisive in deciding on a highly controversial issue. French public television offers open day. The two players expressed different views. Although Djokovic had already announced his preference for the night session a few days earlier, Nadal did so after his Sunday match against Felix Agar-Aliasim, arguing that he had played all his life during the day, he preferred to do it during the day and his age (he was 3rd). At the age of 36) and due to his uncertain physical condition, this could be his last match in Tuesday’s tournament.

It’s a question of style. The Spaniard prefers more daylight, more sensitive to the Land Dryer and its topspin shots, which is one of the foundations of his success on this surface. Djokovic, with a flattering play, knows he’ll have less trouble at night, with a heavier court.

The match between Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zaverev will take place around 4 p.m., after two women’s matches in the third round of the Philippe-Chatrier
