Which french guy will go farthest in this grand slam?

I feel like the french guys are very, very strong this year, the 4 remaining are almost exactly in the same age, very talented and all with different game styles (kind of the new 4 musketeers). I can really see a french guy in the final this year. Which one you think will prevail and go far in this tournament?

My vote goes to Tsonga, I think he will be in the final again.

Monfils was excellent today, I expect him to go farthest.

I'm with Tsonga but it could realistically be Simon or Monfils too, they're all top 10 material. Gasquet is out now *shakes head*

If he can get past Simon id say Monfils. We all know what he did to Rafa at Doha.

Re: Which french guy will go farthest in this grand slam?

there's no way Tsonga will get past Murray and I wouldn't be surprised if Blake defeats him
I would give Monfils a slight edge to Simon, so I'll go with Monfils
