Are you really 20? You act like you're a 14 year old girl in love with her favourite boyband (in your case, Nadal).

Nadal re-instated as the favourite after his masterful South American campaign.

Nole is playing better at the moment than he was during the first half of last season. But no one knows how he's going to be during the European clay season, nor how Nadal is going to be come Monte-Carlo/RG/etc.

That said, Nadal being great on clay is far more of a safe bet than Nole 2011 (still the only year he's beaten Rafa on the dirt) showing up. At the moment Nadal has to be the favourite, barring injury.

Nadal and Djokovic are the favorites of course. As for the rest, I'd highlight Federer of course - never wise to count him out especially in a year where there's a chance Djokovic and Nadal might be in the same half - and Del Potro because of how his game matches up with Rafa's - I believe he has the best chance of beating Rafa after Novak.

But these odds reflect well the fact that it will be a considerable surprise if anyone apart from Nadal or Djokovic win the tournaments, the rest are definitely long shots at this point.

I see you have Gasquet highlighted there, planning on putting your house on Gasquet winning? Seems like a safe bet, can't lose with those odds.

Yep, just sold my apartment and bought a cheaper one, putting the difference on Gasquet in the process.

A few months until I get 100x my money back...

Hello WMF, how are you doing?

Federer, Berdych, Almagro, Ferrer, Del Potro.

Nice little list, don't you think?
