Filip Krajinovic played great this weekend. Beat Djokovic, 2-0 h2h now, played very tight 3 setter vs Thiem in the finals, only played 1 bad game really and that was that.

But is Krajinovic on the level of a top 5 favorite for RG? Obviously Nadal is #1, Djoko/Thiem are 2 and 3 in whatever order.

But after that? I don't trust the likes of Tsitsipas (yet), Medvedev (on clay), or Zverev (ever/anywhere). So why not Krajinovic?

Hell no he isn't. I'd say the favourites are Djokovic, Nadal, Thiem, Zverev, and maybe Tsitsipas.

Nadal Thiem Djokovic Zverev Tsitsipas Medvedev Wawrinka (Fognini is out right?) Monfils FAA Schwartzman..... then maybe Krajinovic. Close with Lajovic, RBA, Nishikori, Cilic.

He is good, but not even top 15 favourite when it comes to Roland Garros or any slam. He needed 5 sets to beat Carballes Baena last year.

Nadal probably deserves the status as overall favourite because of his past accomplishments on the clay; however, I think Djokovic's mental edge over him would prove decisive. Nadal fears Djokovic, and nobody matches up better against Nadal than Djokovic.

I love Thiem, but the one-handed backhand is a problem. Sustaining what is needed against Nadal over a Bo5 on clay may be impossible. The only player who has all the requirements necessary to beat Nadal in a Bo5 at Roland Garros is Djokovic.

He’s certainly more so than Doublefaultrev. Idk how you people can think Zverev is a favorite when he hasn’t even come close to winning a slam and while he made semis at AO this year, his draw was a joke.

Most sites dont even have him as an option for the title. And they do have alot names such as Tomic and Bemelmans :D


So no.

Good player. Never judge from an exho. He will get to r3 or 4 with a good draw

Why top 5? He is probably the biggest favorite to win the CYGS
