I personally would love to see him win the French Open.I was so dissapointed when he lost to Martin Verkerk in last years semi-final.This year I think he will learn from that and he has a great chance of winning.I think the only one who stands in his way is Juan Carlos Ferrero.Ferrero and Coria are definetely the 2 best claycourters in the world.

I want Guillermo to win it because I think he rocks!!!

I want Guille to win too. He mentally stronger than he was last year (must be the new coach) SO I really think he can do it!!! He wants it really bad too.

Well....as his fan of course, I'd love to watch him winning this tournament some day, and why not this year.

But realistically talking, I think that he has to be physically very very very good to achieve this; last year he made a great run until quarters, but then at the semis totally went down ag. Verkerk :o So he has to be prepared for 7 long matches....if he can do it, and the draw isn't that that that hard....yes, he has a pretty good chance, specially now that Ferrero doesn't look THAT good to defend his title.

I agree + he has to stay injury free for a while, which he hopefully will be!

He's had a very good year so far. I'd love to see him take over the number 3 spot. :)

I think that he arrives to Paris in a good shape, he played a good tennis at hamburg, i think he started the first rounds with not so good tennis but he recovered and played a good match with number 1 Roger in the final. If he plays as he did in Monte-Carlo nobody can win him, instead if he plays as he did in Hamburg he will have a much more complicated tournament but i think that he can do it and he wants revenge with the only player that could win him in almost an year, the great Roger Federer.

Definetely. I just hope he can keep up with his level the whole matches.

:wavey: :wavey: raincy! Yup, now he is one of the favourite player to win RG. But the precondition is he must be 100%, physically without any hurt, any pain. Then it would be possible. :yeah: And I think he will on form. Because RG is his favourite tournament.

Also there is someone who's signature is: Guillermo Coria is the best thing since dulce de leche. SOO true!!

Andy's the best since dulce de lenche
Guille's the best since chocolate ;) lol!

I think that Coria is favourite to win in Paris this year. Other candidates in clay are Ferrero, Moya, Safin, who has had good results in clay (Roland Garros, Hamburg and Davis Cup 2002) and Federer who is favourite in all surfaces.

Breaking down the French Open draw

Jon Wertheim, SI.com






Sports Illustrated senior writer Jon Wertheim peers into his crystal ball to reveal the fate of the top 16 men's and women's seeds for the French Open. Scroll down to see the first-round matches you shouldn't miss, some dark horse candidates to advance to Week 2, and his championship predictions.

Men's Report

1. Roger Federer (Switzerland): Take this to the bank: He will eclipse his performance from 2002 and 2003. Particularly after Hamburg, Federer -- winner of two of the past three Slams -- is a sensible pick. But his draw is brutal (just to meet his nemesis David Nalbandian in the quarters, he'll have to get through Nicolas Kiefer, Gustavo Kuerten and Feliciano Lopez). If he survives those matches, you wonder if he won't be fried.

2. Andy Roddick (United States): We like his improved court positioning on clay as well as his insistence on heading netward. But on what is far and away his worst surface, it will be a considerable achievement if he reaches the middle weekend. (On the other hand, he sure can't complain about his draw.)

3. Guillermo Coria (Argentina): Your 2004 winner.

4. Juan Carlos Ferrero (Spain): Defending champ has had a rough year. Even during his stealthy run to the Australian semis, he wasn't at his best. Track record alone puts him on the short list of contenders. But, slowed by injuries, he is simply not the player he was a year ago. Plus, he starts off against Tommy Haas.

5. Carlos Moya (Spain): Elite player but has a knack for mystifying Slam losses. If he's in form, a likely quarterfinal throwdown with Coria could decide the championship.

6. Andre Agassi (United States): The 1999 champ is coming in with little momentum, facing an onslaught of questions about his future. He'll have a few easy matches to play himself into a groove, but it's hard to see him advancing beyond his seeding.

7. Rainer Schuettler (Germany): The Germanator's year has been lousy thus far, but a sauerkraut draw might help him pick up traction.

8. David Nalbandian (Argentina): Wish he were healthier, but he's still a player to watch.

9. Tim Henman (Great Britain): It's a countdown to Wimbledon.

10. S?bastien Grosjean (France): Mr. Big Pants has had a quiet year, but he could generate some noise here. Shouldn't be tested until round three.

11. Nicolas Massu (Chile): Intriguing prospect. Starts off easy, but then has to meet Tommy Robredo and Moya.

12. Lleyton Hewitt (Australia): Has little trace of his 2002 swagger and has never done particularly well at Roland Garros. On the other hand, the draw gods smiled on him, and he may perform well now that the attention has shifted elsewhere. Just don't schedule him on a back court.

13. Paradorn Srichaphan (Thailand): Struggling and playing on his worst surface, P-Dorn is an upset-in-waiting.

14. Jiri Novak (Czechoslovakia): Look for Gaston Gaudio to beat him in round two.

15. Sjeng Schalken (Netherlands): Always a threat to make waves. Never a threat to win, especially on clay.

16. Fernando Gonzalez (Chile): Terminal over-hitter has cooperative draw.

LOWER SEEDS WORTH WATCHING

17. Tommy Robredo (Spain): Talented, mentally iffy player beat Hewitt after trailing two sets to love last year.

19. Martin Verkerk (Netherlands): Just to cover our bases.

20. Marat Safin (Russia): As always, he's as capable of winning as he is of getting tuned in his first match with Agustin Calleri.

21. Andrei Pavel (Romania): Nice mini-comeback for Romanian dad.

22. Juan Ignacio Chela (Argentina): Star this pony in your racing form.

23. Feliciano Lopez (Spain): Highest ranked lefty on ATP.

26. Albert Costa (Spain): Does the 2002 champ still have some magic?

27. Vincent Spadea (United States): Agassi notwithstanding, the one American who has some natural aptitude on dirt.

28. Gustavo Kuerten (Brazil): A shell of the player he once was but still dangerous on clay.

31. Dominik Hrbaty (Slovakia): Talented, hit-or-whiff player who has had past success at Roland Garros.

DARK HORSE NATION

Tommy Haas (Germany): When he knocks off Ferrero, remember you heard it here first.

Gaston Gaudio (Argentina): If he keeps his head -- no small condition -- he could go far.

Victor Hanescu (Romania): Best player you don't know.

Fernando Verdasco (Spain): Big game even on clay.

Robin Soderling (Sweden): Not sure about his clay proficiency but due for a breakthrough.

Filippo Volandri (Italy): Long live Italian tennis.

Nicolas Escude (France): Dangerous as always -- particularly with the home crowd behind him.

FIRST-ROUND MATCHES TO WATCH

Soderling vs. Schalken

Calleri vs. Safin

Richard Gasquet (France) vs. Nalbandian

Ferrero vs. Haas

Arnaud Clement (France) vs. Fabrice Santoro (France)

Roddick vs. Todd Martin (United States)

PREDICTIONS

Semis: Federer vs. Gaudio, Coria vs. Total Surprise

Final: Federer vs. Coria

Winner: Coria

He could have win it, I'm sure he also would if he weren't injured.
He's so much better than Gaudio :) He'll do it next time. We'll all support him where ever we can ;)
