Will you ever learn? Of course Nadal will win it again. He pulled it off last year with colder conditions and destroyed Djokovic in the final. This year, it will be hot as fuck, the balls will bounce sky high and Nadal will return everything from the stands with a deadly spin.

Only injury can stop Nadal.

Federer to win this time. The stupid wind screwed him big time in 2019… obviously rafas high spin is less prone to windy conditions than Federer’s attacking all court tennis. If he is in shape which I assume after more than a year break he might actually get his first rg win over a declining Rafa

Without wind in the third set Rafa destroyed Federer. How often has Rafa to beat Federer at Roland Garros to accept he is just to good for him?

Please stop using crack. It's not good for you.

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.
I thought Sinner was the second-best player at last year's RG actually.

1. Thiem
------------------

Djokovic
Tsitsipas

No one else unless he plays someone like Sinner in 2R or 3R when he's not quite in the groove and gets knocked out early.

Only Thiem and Djokovic. Honorable mention to Tsitsipas, but his OHBH is much worse than Thiem's, so limited chance.
Sinner not ready yet

I thought Sinner was the second-best player at last year's RG actually.
You thought it wrong. Actually Tsitsipas and Djokovic were better, but they got exhausted by semi/final.

Djokovic wins #19 here, and it won't be Dull he faces in the final.
You mean Thiem will beat Nadal on the other side? Not entirely impossible, but he needs better preparation and to avoid meltdowns.

So let's see who can beat Nadal.
Medvedev - no chance.
Thiem - 0.01% chance.
Djokovic - no chance, as we've seen last year in ideal conditions for The Injured One.
Federer - 0.001% chance.
Tsitsipas - no chance.
Zverev - 0.001% chance.
Skipping some clowns because they are worthless.
Fognini - 1% chance.
And that's about it.
Nadal wins RG again.

Only thing stopping Nadal is an injury or a crisis in form. He has shown he can win it without winning a tune up event and in the worst possible conditions ever. Conditions he hated and still didn’t drop a set. Novak is clearly the second fave as the others don’t have the bottle in finals.

Who will win the clay slam? The clay specialist Dull of course.

Only 200% Chichi, 150% Thiem, or non-injured Nole can beat him there this time.
