What time does Novak Djokovic vs Carlos Alcaraz start?



Novak Djokovic faces Carlos Alcaraz for a place in the French Open men’s final on Friday in a mouthwatering semi-final clash.

Djokovic and Alcaraz have only met once before – with the Spaniard winning on clay at the Madrid Open last year – and this will be their first match over best of five sets.

With Rafael Nadal absent from the French Open for the first time since 2005, both Djokovic and Alcaraz came into the tournament as the main contenders to win the Roland Garros title but were placed in the same half of the men’s singles draw.

Alcaraz, the world No 1 and US Open champion, has been in sparkling form and demolished Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals. Djokovic is attempting to win a men’s record 23rd grand slam in Paris and looked close to his best as he came from a set down to defeat Karen Khachanov on Tuesday.

Here’s everything you need to know.


What time is Novak Djokovic vs Carlos Alcaraz?

The match has been scheduled first on Court Philippe Chatrier and is slated to start from 1:45pm BST (UK time) on Friday 9 June.

It will be followed by the second men’s semi-final between Casper Ruud and Alexander Zverev.
