An entirely reasonable suggestion and one I will go along with.

No...especially for Nadal. He is a different beast in BO5-- 8-3 in Slams vs. Djokovic speaks for itself..He is the much more better big match player than Nole..

Even if Joker wins Rome, I doubt if he can take down Nadal in best of 5/ the mysterious performance-enhanced second week Nadal in Paris

No, not really but it's a good question which brings me to something else. I've read a couple of years ago somewhere (I really can't remember tho) that the best indicator of a potential RG winner is Monte Carlo. Apparently, there are many guys who won MC and went to win RG that same year. Sorry, I'm bad at stats. I hope that maybe Litotes or Slasher can 'enlighten' us here. The article was also mentioning the similarity between MC and RG courts etc.

Yep, MC winner was the most probable RG winner for the last 20 year or so.

I don't think so even though mentally it will be an advantage for the winner

Big time, yes. It won't engrave it in stone, yet would be a massive mental boost.

More important for Rafa atm though, Nole could very well lose here and enter in the same state of mind RG as he would have regardless, while Rafa losing here would have a potentially crushing effect on him mentally.

my 2 cents anyway
