John McEnroe has seen the next Roland Garros champion — on the court in the 2004 final. The 1984 French Open finalist believes 2004 Roland Garros runner-up Guillermo Coria will take home the title at the conclusion of the French fortnight.

"What I think might happen is that Federer and Nadal will beat up on each other in the semifinal and let Coria in through the back door to win the title he should have won last year," McEnroe said.

Wow! That's exactly the way it's going to happen, John McEnroe said so!!

It makes sense.
After last year's final, many people will be rooting for Coria if he reaches the final again this year.
But I still don't see him beating either Fed or Nadal.
That is unless those two literally beat up each other on the court and break a rib or something.

Why are you being so critical? Its just his opinion. In fact since you are so good why don't you play next year so that you can make sure McEnroe's prediction is not right.

I think what we can say is he's one of the shoo-in favourites, but not "he'll win the title," no not yet.

I think it could happen, but only if Fed and Rafi go to like 32-30 in the 5th lol.
