Yes on to the next GS to see if Father Time can finally catch up to Rafa as he could not stop Novak again.

My thoughts are Nadal again without dropping a set !

For your actual question, Djokovic is the biggest threat it seems , what happened in 2020 final was pretty crazy.

Sinner appeared to be the best player Rafa faced and Thiem seems to have become more of an all around player instead of the one to dethrone Rafa at RG

Nadal , Djokovic , Federer in that order.
Medvedev won't do nothing on clay ... will slay the USOtho.
Thiem will choke/Zverev will double fault and yeah.
BIG 3 time again

Yes, I'd put Tsitsipas above Zverev, Rogie, Rublev, and Medvedev... It's down to Tsitsipas, Djokovic (gulp), or Thiem to do it!!

1) Thiem 2) Djokovic 3) tsitsipas 4) Sinner
So, the usual suspects but I now confidently add tsitsipas to the list.
I’m less sure about Sinner because it’s unclear how quickly he can continue to improve but theoretically he’s a threat.

Djokovic defended his throne, all the pressure is on Rafa again. If he doesn’t win RG, questions will be raised if he will ever win another GS..

1a) Thiem
1b) Nole



2) Tsitsipas

I do think if Fed is healthy he will make the QFs or better though. Even though he hasn’t won in a long time, people forget he’s still really good on clay.

I fear the same. All it takes is one set back and a loss in a tune up to really dial things up. Can anyone imagine him duplicating 2020? I thought he got lucky in some of the matches versus Sinner and Diego if I recall. I don't think he can make that kind of run again with this kind of competition. He is the clear favorite, but he will need things to fall so that he avoids some nightmare, Tsitsi, Thiem, Djoker type of combo. I would throw Diego and Sinner as threats as well. Zverev can't be ruled out either given some of the runs he's made on clay recently.
