These statistics give quite a proper view which players are the favourites for Roland Garros and obviously also the ones who won't. (the similar statistics for women can be found here (http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?p=5454346#post5454346))

Tournaments included: ATP Master Series (Monaco, Rome, Hamburg) + International Series Gold (Barcelona)
Players included: current top-30 + players who reached a QF in one of these tournaments (Gasquet, Ferrero, Wawrinka, Calleri, Mirnyi, Verdasco, A. Martin, Seppi, Chela, C. Rochus)
Rules: retirements count as loss or win, walk-overs don't + qualifying matches are not included
Legend: example = 19. 60,0% (6-4) Lendl
--> 19. = clay court ranking
--> 60.0% = winning percentage
--> (6-4) = 6 winning matches & 4 lost matches

That ranking system is not completely accurate. Having said that, the rankings are pretty much correct.
