French Open midterm grades: Favorites earn an ace

We have the old, reliable standbys on the menu: Iga Swiatek, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal. We have the hot breakout special this year, Carlos Alcaraz. And we will be serving Coco Gauff. Or Coq au Gauff, as it were. Sadly, we’re all sold out of Krejcikova—popular last year—and Jabeur, a Tunisian specialty. (We blame the supply chain.) We also regret to report the removal of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from the menu. Midway through the seven-course meal that is the 2022 French Open, we pause to mix metaphors and hand out midterm grades.
