With club football on a break this weekend due to players going on international duty and playing for their respective countries, the Paris Saint-Germain manager is enjoying his time off by going to a tennis finals match.
The 2020 French Open final featured Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic as it took place on Sunday night, where the Spaniard claimed his 20th Grand Slam title.
However, before the match, the PSG manager spoke with France 2 (via Culture PSG) before the matchup to discuss what he expected to see as he was one of the high-profile celebrities taking in the tilt between two tennis heavyweights.
“I can not say it; it is an extraordinary match. What a final! Rafa at Roland Garros is something very, very special,” Tuchel said. “It’s going to be super difficult for Djokovic. But my heart is balanced between the two players. I want to enjoy a good match.”
Tuchel wasn’t by himself at Roland-Garros, according to Culture PSG, the German manager was with former capital club president Sébastien Bazin, who is also chairman and chief executive officer of Accor, one of PSG’s significant sponsors.

As he had no favorite heading into the matchup, Tuchel overall wanted to see a good tennis matchup regardless of who won, and he got to see that with Nadal winning.
