Those who do not learn their history are doomed to repeat it, an old adage that puts some serious stakes on what is otherwise a very silly game of “Guess Who?” taken on by Roland Garros favorites Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal.

The question remains: how many champions can each man guess in 60 seconds?


The 13-time champion is up first, and it’s no surprise given his monopoly of the year’s second Grand Slam that he himself appears as one of the choices.

“Is it me?” he asks when it’s confirmed the mystery man is left-handed.

Alcaraz follows and the 19-year-old quickly impresses with his knowledge of past champions, guessing the first two former champions with ease.

The last player takes some time, but with a clear picture presented, Alcaraz ultimately plays a perfect game to tie Nadal for three correct answers each.

Might their possible Roland Garros semifinal break the tie?
