I agree WyveN, though I must say I have a sneaking feeling that Marat could surprise a lot of people at Roland Garros this year. I'm not a Safin fan particularly, but I know it's a favourite tournament of his, and - I don't know, - I just think he could do it this year somehow.

Well, since Maratski didn't get AO, he'll be targeting RG. He has reached the SF before Juanqui stopped him, so you never know!

Lots of people will want this one besides Juanqui and Marat: Rogi, Guille, AA...

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

1. Ferrero
2. Moya (he still has a chance)
3. Nadal
4. Agassi (see Moya)

I'm sorry... what? How many times does Ferrero have to reach the semis in Oz and finals of the USO and win Madrid, before people stop calling him a "clay specialist"?

His slam results are roughly as good as Safin's are. Try to look past the ESP, and actually consider the results.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I would L-O-V-E for Coria to win RG since I think it is the only slam he can actually win. But I think Safin will take this year's title.

Re: Who do you think will win Roland Garros?

It's a little bit early for me to predict, I'll have a better idea when the clay season will begin! But the main contenders are definitely the ones mentionned in this poll!

Guga Kuerten

Roger Federer & Novak Djokovic
