I can see Tsitsipas, Zverev or Thiem but may it wil be some Top 10 prospect between youngsters? (Sinner or even Coric).

Or it will be any "retroclayman": PCB, Schwarz or Agut?

Who?

Djokovic have chance? - don't think now....

Thiem, Sinner has a good shot, maybe even Zverev if he doesn’t mug but none of this except maybe Thiem will be possible for at least another 2 years

Rafa is not getting younger. So, Thiem, Zverev, Sinner, Tsitsipas, Djokovic are all likely candidates to do so. Unless Rafa doesn't get injured or lose his fitness.

Thiem is not getting younger, and Djokovic can't even win set with the roof closed!
Nadal has won 12 sets vs. Thiem at Roland Garros, while Thiem has won ONE set (it was 7-5, and followed by 1-6 1-6). Not a good sign for Thiem's future....

Sinner certainly troubled Rafa this year , if makes strides in 2021 would be interesting to see another match.

Realistically Thiem would be the most likely, USO hampered that in 2020

That's several times now that you've implied that Thiem is going to age out of being able to challenge Nadal at RG. You do realise Nadal will be 35 by the time next year's RG final comes around, while Thiem will still be just 27? As amazing as Nadal is/has been on clay, the loss of just a few percent of movement, footwork, stamina etc will stop his slam winning days.

Father time remains undefeated against everyone...
