It seems to many that it is now there for the taking considering his form relative to the other chief contenders at the moment.
The question is will he take it? He, his team and his fans certainly hope so. But the pressure is not trivial. Pressure and nerves can do awful things to athletes and people in general, causing them to under-perform, even make them sick.
He has had his chances. His window of opportunity to win at Roland Garros may last for awhile, or may not. It is not only dependent on him.
Things can change fast in tennis. We don't know when or how, they just do.
