How to watch Carlos Alcaraz vs Novak Djokovic: TV channel and streaming for French Open 2023 semi-final

Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz meet in a highly anticipated showdown in the semi-finals of the French Open today.

It is the 45th Grand Slam semi-final for the 36-year-old Djokovic, and the second for his 20-year-old Spanish rival and current world No 1. Both players have dropped only one set en route to the last four. Djokovic is hoping to leave Roland Garros this year with his third title in Paris and his 23rd major championship overall, which would break a tie with rival Rafael Nadal for the most by a man in the history of tennis.

They’ve only faced off once before on tour — on red clay at the Madrid Masters in May 2022. Alcaraz won, round after beating Nadal and one round before beating Zverev for the title there.

The other men’s semi-final will follow, pitting world No 4 Casper Ruud, last year’s runner-up at Roland Garros, against No 22 Alexander Zverev. Neither has won a major trophy.

Here’s everything you need to know.
