Will Hubert Hurkacz beat his personal best?  The bar is set high

Hubert Hurkacz got to know the Roland Garros ladder. The Pole will certainly want to continue his successful series on clay. However, will he manage to beat his personal best at this tournament? It may be hard.

Hubert Hurkacz is the best Polish tennis player. After the last tournament in Rome, where he reached the quarterfinals, he managed to advance to the highest position in his career – eighth place in the ATP ranking.

Roland Garros: Hubert Hurkacz met his rivals

The tennis player, like Iga Świątek, is preparing for this year's edition of Roland Garros. In the women's version of this competition, Iga Świątek, who had a very good draw, will defend her title. On Thursday, May 23, Hubert Hurkacz met his rivals. The 27-year-old will face a qualifier or the so-called lucky loser. If he wins, he will face the winner of the Brandon Nakashima – Nicolas Moreno De Alboran match in the next match.

Will Hubert Hurkacz be able to beat his personal best? Let's start with the fact that last year the Pole said goodbye to Roland Garros in the third round. The tennis player then lost to Juan Pablo Varillas from Peru. The furthest he managed to get was the 4th round. This took place in 2022.

Roland Garros: Will Hubert Hurkacz improve his personal best?

This year it may be difficult to improve this result. Why? In the 4th round, Hubert Hurkacz may face Grigor Dimitrov. The tennis players faced each other five times and the Pole never won. The last time both players faced each other was in March this year at a tournament in Miami. The Bulgarian won 2:1.

If the best Polish tennis player were to defeat Grigor Dimitrov, then Jannik Sinner is also in the same quarter, with whom he may face in the 1/4 finals. The Italian is seeded number two at Roland Garros and is certainly one of the favorites. The 22-year-old won the Australian Open this year, and in the French Open he reached the quarterfinals the furthest (2020).

This Grand Slam tournament will start on Sunday, May 26. The finals are scheduled for the weekend of June 8-9.
