Current world No.1 Djokovic is aiming for a fourth slam in a row after victories at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2018 at the Australian Open earlier this year.
The Serbian was the 2016 French Open champion and should he win again in 2019 it would be his 16th grand slam title.
With an 86-2 win-loss record he will be confident of defending the title and winning a 12th French Open.
Federer, the world No.4 and 20-time grand slam champion, is returning to clay-court tennis this season. The Swiss has only one French Open title (2009), but he will be a big threat says Tennis.com’s John Berkok.
“He’s one of only three active men’s players other than 11-time champion Rafael Nadal to win Roland Garros, capturing the Coupe des Mousquetaires in 2009,” Berkok writes.
“The other two active players to do it are Stan Wawrinka, who won it in 2015; and Novak Djokovic, who won it in 2016.
“One could even argue that Federer is the second-most accomplished active men’s player at Roland Garros, given he has another four finals in addition to his one title.”
