    Don't really care about most of them...but I say Novak for the French. Nadal will get his @$$ handed to him this time around. Somebody with mean two hander will end up running him silly. He is not going to have enough match play for the grueling 7 matches it will take to win the French. If Novak doesn't win it...Fed will...and if neither of them....Murray. The only reason I pick Fed over Murray at this point is because it is clay. Fed is done now I think. He's the goat but I think Murray and Novak are going to be running things for a while now. Nadal is history...you can stick a fork in him.

    Peace,

    If we're going unlikely winners of Monte Carlo open I'm going for Bernard Tomic.

    Del Potro for Madrid

    Djokovic for RG

    I would like Novak to win RG, if Rafa doesn't return that will be the case. Rafa can win the RG with his eyes closed.

    May we please remember that Novak merely adopted the clay. Rafa in the other hand was born into it, raised in it.. molded by it. It wasn't till Rafa was already a man till he stepped into hard courts.. and even then, it still wasn't too late for him to earn 2 slams on hard.. the clay will betray Novak because it belongs to Rafa!!!



    (BTW, yes I took the liberty to take the dialogue from the Dark Knight Rises)

    His unique style could work in that crazy clay!


    I don't think your Gasquet is too far of a stretch for not to happen:)

    Exactly. His strange slice shots and change of pace will cause havok on clay, he's such an unique player.

    This is one of my favourite clay seasons of all time. Nadal playing 8 clay-court events, and a chance to win the most titles he has EVER won in a season. And Nadal will soon have the most untouchable winning percentage EVER. It's looking like 2013 will be all about Nadal. :p

    Definitely Djokovic for Roland Garros. His time has come. Not sure if Nadal will ever win another slam. Djokovic will win French, Murray Wimbledon, and Djokovic US again

    i've never seen tomic on clay. his slices might sit up too nicely and get crushed at times. i could be wrong though, will be interesting.
