Your life in 2006 depends on the fact that one player wins Roland Garros AND another slam. You have to chose between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal... your pick ?

Nadal because Federer would have to beat him at RG, and its simply not gonna happen :)

If the matter is to win French open and another Grand slam i'm not able to pick just one player ( Roger or Rafa )

I would say that Nadal has the 55% of chances to win Roland Garros and another GS , and Federer 45%.

If my life were on the line, any place, any time...and the player knew it...I'd want Hewitt in my corner.

But for this poll...Roger.

that will not hapen.....

but then, i still vote for nadal...

the chance for federer to win RG is smaller then nadal to win RG plus any one other slam....

next year, i think federer and nadal still dominating the mens tennis... its like already known that nadal will win RG and federer will win wimbledon, of course, federer may win other 2 slams as well, but federer to beat nadal on clay? NO WAY.. sorry, i just dont see that to happen....

This question has bias ;)

Suppose you replace Roland Garros with Wimbledon, answer will be inverted

The problem is " mdhubert " considers that Rafa or Roger , one of them will be next French open winner and according to this criterion we have to make our bet
, so i'm obliged to think no more players can win next Roland Garros.

Well, I suppose more options could be added to the poll, but honestly, who else stands a reasonable chance of winning multiple grand slams next year?

Nadal, has to be. I don't know if I'd want to stake my life on it though.

You're as good as dead, I would say.

I don't think Nadal is ready to win a slam other than RG right now, and I'm certain that Federer would win one of the other ones... but could Federer stop Nadal at RG? Unlikely.

For this poll i'd say Roger, the reason being, he has made it to the semifinals of each slam while Nadal has not. Federer has the ability to win them all, and considering the fact that a little rusty Federer took a set off of Nadal at the French Open, i'ts far more likely Federer to win the the FO then Nadal winning other slams besides the French. You people are seriously underestimating Federer! He's how many points in front of Nadal right now? Federer could end the year 500 some points in front of Nadal, that's quite a lead! The year is not over yet people!

It looks like Nadal has the most chance to win RG, and since this poll is one half RG then I'd have to vote for him. But he is not unbeatable on clay. Last year everyone was thinking Coria would win RG for sure, and dominate clay for a couple of years, but he didnt, and now it looks like he might not. So I would not be surprised if Roger beat him at RG next year, and I certainly wouldnt write it off as a possibility.

I agree with you, plus Fed was not his normal self in the semi in RG. Still the toughest task ahead for him at this stage, but feasable....

It's quite close bu Fed gets a good percentage, 2006 should be his year for the French
