Re: Who is the early favorite for Roland Garros 2013?
I think you can´t make an early favourite. Djokovic has only final here which he lost pretty badly except for 8 games. And in my opinion he is just not as good as he used to be in 2011. BUT with an AO-like draw he will probably win. Nadal has not played for 8 months and becomes 27 yo during the tournament, he is not as good as in his younger years, as well, though 2012 RG was much better than 2011. Murray has never reached a clay final, so obviously he is not a favorite. And I can´t see him beating Federer, Nadal or Djokovic, or even 2 of them. Federer on the other hand was the best player at RG 2011, but played horrible in 2012. If he gets a good form and Ferrer in his half and Nadal in the other, he would be my favourite. The only player outside of the top 4 who could win would be del Potro. If he´s hitting well, he´s so hard to beat and unlike Berdych, he has slam potential.
