Who has got the best chance to beat Djokovic at Roland Garros 2011?

Unbeaten for 40 matches this year! Who's gonna stop him of winning his first French Open title?

:confused:

He's going undefeated in 2011. I wonder how long it will take for people to realize that and stop posting these obviously pointless threads.

I have a feeling Murray stands a better chance than both Nadal and Federer :o But then that would mean they would play in the final, and we all know how Murray plays in GS Finals :help:

I definitely do think the most he'll get test though will be in the final against Nadal or Murray though, can't see anyone even taking him to 5 before the final.

^ that quote in your sig can't be for real, can it?

Del Potro is always dangerous but I can't see him beating Djokovic. I would never write off Federer, if they both make it to the semi-final.

What kind of amateur list is this? Where is the Soderling (F) option? He was in the final 09 and 10. Why would he be stopped by that spanish dude in the QF.

I would say either Ferrer or Murray. I can't see anyone else really doing it. I would say Nadal, but something just looks a little off this year. Even with his serve on (which it really wasn't for a while) I wouldn't expect Isner to take Rafa to 5.

I think Federer.

Murray/delpo and Federer all have a 12% chance for different reasons. Everyone else on the list can just forget it.

Del Potro has the best chance. It's going to take a God with power to blow Djokovic's steady balls off the court. It's not going to be Nadal. He is really starting to piss me off!! Don't understand why he is declining so fast. There is really no excuse. His backhand is about the worst in the top 10, his return of serve is so bad, he's getting slower and his ass is not as big and fluffy and voluptuous as it used to be. It's becoming almost depressing to watch him now.

Why do people say Ferrer? He has no chance against Djokovic in this form.

Soederling would have been the next option but there are only ten ;)

And you gotta admit that Soederling is outta form. It would be sensational to see him anywhere near the final :D

Soderling? Are you kidding me?! He is nothing more than one Federer's rap video hoes.

The best chance has Nadal I guess.

Nadal has no chance to beat Djokovic. Nadal does not have any tools to hurt him.

Nadal.

Ferrer doesn't have a strong forehand to go back to back with Nole and survive enough to take 3 sets off of him.

Del Potro is injured, and even if he wasn't, Djokovic would still defeat him.

Federer has a 1 handed back and and he's old, so Djokovic will definitely defeat him.

If Nadal can add more power to his game like at the USO, he might be able to push him a bit. But right now Djokovic is eating up his serves. Djokovic's return of serve is winning a lot of free points for him.

It'll be Federer that stops him, if they both make the SF.

I don't know if people here follow English football, but Arsenal went a whole season unbeaten recently in the Premiership, something that hadn't been done since 1888 (that is 1888). They ended up going 49 league matches unbeaten until they were taken out by one of their underperforming but greatest rivals, Manchester United.

The best and closest rivals will always be the ones which take you down in the end. So I reckon Federer, but if not him, only Nadal or Murray can stop him at the moment, and I'm not that sure of Nadal.

Nadal.

Has the experience of winning 5 finals here so may benefit from that knowledge.

actually i think, nole prefers having fed in his half, so he can improve his h2h against both fed and nadal in this tournament... murray would maybe be a bigger threat in the semis to nole, because he is desparate to proove himself, while fed not so much and only has hurt pride as main motivation, to beat nole...

Sort of a myth with the outta form Soderling. Been a few injuries but otherwise his season looks great. In fact it looks better at this stage than in 2009 and 2010 if that says something. And yeah its not like he had nice draws in 09 and 10 but I know its a lot of what have you done for me lately going on here.

talking about a two time finalist in this tournament maybe it's also worth mentioning

David Ferrer:
Best Singles Performance:
Quarter Finalist (2005, 2008)

Dunno about his chances vs Djokovic. Really not his strongest tournament. Never has been

The best Rafa would beat him, sadly he doesn't have too good form... he wins tournament again.

More and more I've got the feeling it could be Federer. He seems to be in supreme form! That would be a semi! Wow!!!

Federer or Nadal. More so Federer. That been said neither really have a chance. Just had to give an answer to the question.

federer has a good chance. he is playing very well so far.

05-30-2011, 10:34 PM
Federer is looking pretty dangerous tbh. First Slam for him in about 8 years where he's gone in completely under the radar and it seems to suit him. Then again, he's looked good in many tournaments in the past year or two only to fold to a top player in the semis/final. I still think Nole has this.

fed made 25 ufe against wawrinka. that wont work vs novak who made 15 vs gasquet.

also he should count on less winners, cause of the djokomovement. he made 32, 2 less than nole.

interestingly, wawrinka and gasquet made very similar statistics.

hmm yeah I was right about Ferrer too. You just don't include a guy that has never been past the QF and count out a two-time finalist. Soderling always goes under the radar. Now he must take out Nadal and ruin the poll completely.

Federer is the only guy who can do it. Murray would have a shot but he'd have to do it in a slam final. Maybe he'd feel less pressure at R.G., but 3 flops out of 3 don't bode well.

at this point, federer is my guess, i think if nole beats federer, nole will grind out nadal or soderling in the final.
