    Nadal if he's feeling OK, otherwise Gulbis or maybe Berankis.

    Way too early for this discussion. We haven't even seen reliable exhibition action at the Nike Clash of Champions (which notes that there remains a very real possibility of one or more athletes dropping out)!

    Definitely Gulbis if he's in form. If not, Vince Spadea takes it.

    Probably Nadal.

    Had Nadal won the Australian Open then I would have doubts about him winning the French Open. Seeing as Australian Open winners for some reason don't win then the French Open. At least that has been the case for the past 15 years or so.

    Henman will come out of retirement and serve and volley his way to the trophy, which he will then do unspeakable things to in front of the cameras.

    After witnessing such a thing, Nadal will never bite another trophy again :eek:

    Henman will meet Murray in the final, but the laws of physics rule that neither man can win a grand slam final, resulting in a paradox

    Nadal might win but then again any player in the top 10 could beat each other.

    Most likely Nicolas Almagro as long as he's not injured.

    John Isner of course, 6-7 7-6 6-7 7-6 175-173. Now you guess the runner up. :)

    These threads are so frickin' retarded.

    It's like a gathering of "Hey, post here if you wanna help this go full-******"

    That slam is 3 months away, what in the ****'s name can you possibly predict about it?...That the crowd is gonna boo at some point?...On what premises?

    It's just another excuse for starting one of those moronic arguments about the top players based on their most recent showings and some of the old populars.

    **** off...

    Nadal if (and this is a BIG IF) he is healthy.

    The rest of the field will be hoping that he overplays as he did in 2009. And that could happen, given Nadal's schedule in the next few months.

    Exactly. Because if Nadal loses, then he's injured right?

    Nadal if he's not tired, sick, injured, uninterested, distracted, absent minded, hypnotized, lobotomized or under a voodoo spell.

    On clay? Pretty much yeah... at least in the last 6 years or so!

    He had some losses early on clay in 2005 where he was just outplayed but starting with Monte Carlo in 2005 he was pretty much unbeatable on clay without being hampered by injury or fatigue.

    The closest anyone came to a win over a physically 100% Nadal on clay since then was Federer in the 2006 Rome final where he had 2 match points in the 5th set and missed a forehand down the line by inches on one of them. The second closest was to Coria in the 2005 Rome final. Nadal is alot improved from 05-06 though, with no other existing players playing at the clay level of 05-07 Federer or even 04-05 Coria either.

    Soderling has proven he can beat Federer and Nadal on clay. So no reason, why he cant be a threat in 2011.

    Nadal is obviously the clear favourite though.
