Pavel Kotov v Jannik Sinner: How to watch, TV channel, start time and head-to-head stats

Having won his maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January, Jannik Sinner will be hoping to follow up at the French Open and he starts a red-hot favourite for his third-round clash with Pavel Kotov.

Sinner has recorded straight-set victories over Christopher Eubanks and Richard Gasquet in his opening two assignments in Paris, quashing any injury concerns following his withdrawal from Madrid, and he will be expected to make light work of Kotov.

However, the Russian has a strong clay-court game and claiming the scalps of British number one Cameron Norrie and three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka highlight that.

Pavel Kotov v Jannik Sinner start time, date and venue

Pavel Kotov v Jannik Sinner will start at approximately 14:00 UK Time on Friday 31st May 2024. The match will be played on Court Philippe-Chatrier at Roland Garros, Paris. 

However, the early stages of the French Open have been severely disrupted by rain which means the schedule is subject to change.

This is set to be the second career meeting between Kotov and Sinner and it should come as no surprise to see that the Italian world number two won their previous encounter.

That was a pretty recent rivalry, too, as Sinner defeated Kotov 6-2 7-5 in the last 16 in Madrid at the end of April, with that match-up also having been played on the clay.

Sinner has lost only two of his 34 competitive matches this season and his two French Open assignments so far have seen him triumph in straight sets.

That said, Kotov has failed to claim a set in only one of his last 11 clay-court matches.
