Federer is not going to play in Monte Carlo. Instead, he is going to play Estoril, Rome and Madrid to prep for the French Open.

I think Nadal will have the best results during the clay court season and I think he's likely to add FO #5.

This thread should be bumped. The more i think about it, this next couple of months on clay is super exciting.

Will Rafa finally win a tourny or is he still really that fragile?

Who will beat Rafa? Djokovivc this time finally?

Will Del Potro show up and blow everybody off the court?

Will we get Rafa vs Soderling, the revenge rematch?

Can Roger emulate his '09 season?

Will Rafa and Roger meet in another final?

Will Roddick actually win a match?

Will Rafa think twice about pink shirts?

Will anyone actually care about Casablanca?

Can Nadal gain ANY points? Isn't he defending champion in MC, Barcelona and Rome, and a finalist in Madrid? Federer can gain a few if he plays MC and not lose early this time, and he has to defend a Rome SF and the Madrid title. Djoko has a lot to defend as well, reaching 2 finals and 1 SF, so the only one left who can gain a lot is Murray.

Too bad Ferrero doesn't defend Casablanca. Want him to make top 10 :(

Hard to say since Nadal is probably going to win a lot but he can't gain any points. Maybe there'll be someone else who will have consistent success.. but I think it will go like last year, except Djokovic isn't going to reach so many finals and Nadal may not win every tournament this time.

He'll gain 400 points if he wins Madrid(was finalist last year).
