Who are the players from USA to watch out for?
In the women's singles event, Jessica Pegula probably has the best possible chance of winning. The 29-year-old has produced some pretty good performances over the past year or so, and she is capable of launching a title challenge if she is at her best.
Pegula started the French Open with a 6-4, 6-2 win over compatriot Danielle Collins. She will next face Camila Giorgi and could take on either 28th seed Elise Mertens or Camila Osorio in the third round if she advances.
Pegula should manage to make it to the quarterfinals, and with Maria Sakkari and Belinda Bencic already out, there is a strong chance of her reaching the semifinals should she get to the last eight.
Sixth seed Coco Gauff reached last year's French Open final and will be expected to have a good run in 2023 as well. The teenager booked her place in the second round by beating Rebeka Masarova 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 in the opening round.
With Veronuka Kudermetova eliminated, there is a fair chance Gauff could reach the quarterfinals, where she could face a daunting task against Iga Swiatek. Madison Keys and Shelby Rogers are among the seeds, while Sloane Stephens ousted Maria Sakkari in the opening round.
Taylor Fritz is the highest-ranked American representative in the men's singles tournament, and he will be expected to do well, especially after his run to the semifinals at the Monte-Carlo Masters. 12th seed Frances Tiafoe is another player to look out for, as he is capable of being a menace to the best of players on his day.
The likes of Tommy Paul and Sebastian Korda cannot be written off and are both capable of doing well.
