    We all know that Nadal will win his 5th consecutive RG next week, the real question is how many sets will he lose on his way to the championship? I say 1, in the final against Djokovic.

    Damn I didn't put the option of 0, anyone knows how to edit the poll?

    Well 3 is automatic since he'll lose that many in the final. So I say minimum 3 :).

    He will lose 5 sets in total. 3 in the final against Federer, 1 set against verdasco and 1 set against Ferrer should they meet.

    anyone thinking he's not going to win the tourny is putting a brave face on it as far as i'm concerned. kinda like mccain saying "when i am president, i will..." at his late stumps.

    he will lose a set in the final. he has not been *as* imperious as last year at times this clay season, i think 2 in total, the second going on the chance that verdasco or ferrer may put themselves in a position to win one.

    Nadal won the French finals in straight sets in 2007?

    1 set to djoker. But if federer makes it then 0 sets.

    So on average I will guess 3 games. :)

    So far Nadal has lost 0 sets, just like last year. I'm sure some people would like to change their predictions now :lol:.

    Well.. I hope at least 3 to Federer, but I think he will lose only 1 or 2 sets this tournament.

    Only in 2008 didn't lost sets!
    Let's see: it's not the same Rafa of last year, but still I think he's the best here in RG.
    Note how deep he plays here, and if you see Madrid or even Rome they didn't.
    The guy just feels great in Paris, and there's five sets per match, so it's very difficult to beat him (impossible, no, you never know, but almost)
