I agree with Federer having a big chance in Madrid. Last year it was pretty fast and he won a set over Rafa, coming from a break down. He lost the match, but it was close and it could go other way.
Besides this, I see Nadal claming his "clay god" status. Montecarlo is always his tournament.
I think he would win Rome this year (who knows, maybe a victory over Nole).
And about Roland Garros... At the begining of the year a had a hearbeat this time it won't be won by Rafa. I still consider that heartbeat, but thinking seriously, I think he will win it easily.

A curious fact is Federer is playing just 3 clay tournaments in the whole year. No estoril or another 250, and no Montecarlo.
So, he'd probably rest well and be prepared for those matches. who knows?
Surprises did happen before.

great post. looking a little further ahead, i think fed is going to do quite well after the u.s. open again. this year he is even better than he was last year. he is also armed with some added confidence.
