Re: List your Top 5 favorites for Roland Garos 2015.

Favorites as in "who is most likely to win"? Or favorites as in "who I most want to win"?

The latter list for me:

T1. Wawrinka and Ferrer
3. Monfils
4. Tsonga
5. Almagro

Mmmm no Nadal in the TOP 5. That's mighty disrespectful even if he is not at his best. He would still trouble FEDERER in Paris. This is the correct 5.

1.DJOKOVIC BY FAR...
2.MURRAY...
3.WAWRINKA...
4.NADAL...
5.NISHIKORI...

I would have FEDERER at 6. But I don't think he can beat any of that top 5 on clay in A BEST OF 5 slam. You guys have got to understand what time does to your stamina and reflexes. Every slam FEDERER plays from now on will show his age at some point.

Djokovic (but he's favourite for everything nowadays anyway but he will be especially motivated here)

Nadal (BO5 & RG, no matter what his form you cannot ignore history)

Murray (Clayray has shown form recently, cannot be discounted)

Wawrinka (After the GOATing against Nadal yesterday, who knows? Outside chance.

>The rest.. Nishikori discounted because I don't think he can take it physically & Federer I don't think has a realistic chance.

Nadull has lost only one best-of-five match played on clay in his career.
That's why he is top favourite. I wouldn't like to see him as a winner again, but numbers don't lie.

Re: List your Top 5 favorites for Roland Garos 2015.

1. Nadal - ok, he has had a crap run up to RG but BO5 on Chatrier, Nadal is a beast
2. Djokovic - No further explanation needed
3. Murray - back-to-back clay titles he is a threat
4. Ferrer - Duracell bunny could luck in if Nadal lands in Djokovic's quarter
5. Berdych - Dark horse and playing solid tennis

Rafito (just)
Nolito
Muzzard
Stanley
FedEx
Clay Nishikori 2.0 Order of the Rising Sun

Corny nicknames aside, they're the only six contenders and there's a big gap between 2nd fav and 3rd fav, I would say. Ferrer and Berdych are not contenders in any shape or form.
