This is quite true of his FO history.

Yup, the simple fact that jokers like Monaco and Ferrer are being hyped among the best players on the surface really exposes the lack of depth of the clay field..

Better chance.........which is essentially negative 0% chance compared to negative 10% chances.

He's the favorite but it obviously depends on his form going in the event. He hasn't played practically since winning RG '12 but he has half a year (not to mention the entire clay season) to regain his form.

He'll win it with relative ease, beating Del Potro in the final.

I hope not. I hope neither of the top 4 wins any grand slam next year actually. But since that is unrealistic, a new RG winner would be a good start.

You can't beat Nadal on clay by trying to outgrind him, that cannot be done. You have to do it the Soderling way; not necessarily play the same style as Soderling, but you need to serve, hit big, go for your shots to penetrate Nadal's defense. Only if you can do that will you have a chance.
Djokovic out_grinded Nadal all over 2011 until Federer spoiled the party.
