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

Thread really isn't relevant until we see Nadal's form. If I absolutely had to choose, however, it would be:

Nadal (because I seriously think he's that good on clay)
Novak
Fed


Murray

Why Del Potro in the poll ? He's not better than Ferrer, Tsonga and Berdych.

You cannot be serious

On topic, Djokovic. Will have to wait and see in what shape Nadal comes back to pass judgement on him, if he's in good shape of course he must be the favorite.

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

Nadal will be in top shape by RG. Six clay tournaments before RG.

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

Depends if Nole plays all the clay events that Nadal does.

If he does, then he's the favourite.

Nole CYGS 2017
Copy this signature to join the bandwagon before it's too late.

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

too early to tell, let's see how nadal will turn out to be.
people easily discounting murray and fed. although murray does not have spectacular results on clay, i expect him to improve significantly this year. his chances are, like federer's, rather sensitive to nadal's fitness and the side of the draw nadal lands in. djoko's too, but to a lesser degree.

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

Has to be Nole at this point. I don't know how people can say Nadal is a favourite when he hasn't played in 8 months, who knows what his condition will be when he returns.

If those odds are correct, 15-1 for Rog isn't bad at all for a small stake.

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

As Rafa still yet to play a match,it's hardly to pick one,but if i have to chose right now,i'd say Djoko

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

Will have to wait until February's Clay tournaments are over to make a proper judgement.... however I think if Murray is to stand ANY chance at the FO, he needs to enter one of the clay tournaments in South America, buuuuuuuuuuuutttt... he probably won't.

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