The world number three, Carlos Alcaraz, and the world number four, Alexander Zverev, are all set to lock horns for the final game of the French Open 2024, which is slated to take place on June 9 in Paris. The 21-year-old Alcaraz had outclassed Jannik Sinner in the semi-final game, while Zverev thrashed Casper Ruud to mark his way to the final game. Both star players will be looking to win their first-ever clay court titles in the upcoming match.

Notably, the 21-year-old Alcaraz started his tournament with a great win over J.J. Wolf in the opening round, while he defeated Jesper de Jong in the second round before eliminating Sebastian Korda and 21st seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in the third and fourth rounds, respectively. However, the Spaniard outclassed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinal clash before toppling Jannik Sinner in the semi-final thriller.

On the other hand, Zverev made bold headlines in the opening round itself as he thrashed 14-time French winner Rafael Nadal in the first round while he eliminated David Goffin, Tallon Griekspoor, and Hoger Rune in the qualifying rounds. The German-born star later ended the dream run of Alex de Minaur and Casper Ruud in the quarterfinals and semifinals to place himself in the final of the marquee event.
