I noticed a rule that the half with federer in draw will play first.

Fed only participate 2 clay tournament till now this season

In Madrid, Fed is with the Novak's half and that half play first, finally Novak wins
In Rome, Fed is with the Rafa's half and that half play first, finally Rafa wins

I also remember In AO this year Fed also play first, last year's US open and Wimbledon Fed's half play first too

So according to this rule, can we get a easy conclusion that in Roland Garros, who has Fed in his half, who have the right to play first and have more rest and energy to win the title?

Well typically most tournaments have the defending champions half play first, hence whoever is on Federer’s half usually plays first
