Pot, kettle, black methinks.

Are you really 20? You act like you're a 14 year old girl in love with her favourite boyband (in your case, Nadal).

Nadal re-instated as the favourite after his masterful South American campaign.

Re: Who is the early favorite for Roland Garros 2013?

Nole is playing better at the moment than he was during the first half of last season. But no one knows how he's going to be during the European clay season, nor how Nadal is going to be come Monte-Carlo/RG/etc.

That said, Nadal being great on clay is far more of a safe bet than Nole 2011 (still the only year he's beaten Rafa on the dirt) showing up. At the moment Nadal has to be the favourite, barring injury.

Nadal and Djokovic are the favorites of course.

But these odds reflect well the fact that it will be a considerable surprise if anyone apart from Nadal or Djokovic win the tournaments, the rest are definitely long shots at this point.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Who is the early favorite for Roland Garros 2013?

Yep, just sold my apartment and bought a cheaper one, putting the difference on Gasquet in the process.

A few months until I get 100x my money back...

Hello WMF, how are you doing?

Federer, Berdych, Almagro, Ferrer, Del Potro.

Nice little list, don't you think?

After assesing Nadal's epic HC return I now have him as the slight favourite over djoko king.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
