2013 ROLAND GARROS - General Discussion Thread
 


Have there ever been more dominant favorites than Rafa and Serena? 27-2 and 16-0 respectively on clay this year.

Post early predictions and thoughts now. Opening post will be updated with information and draws upon their release (likely Friday).
Poll closes before the tournament starts (on Sunday) so we don't have any retroactive clairvoyants.

May the Mythical Swiss Eagle - Roger - and the Son of God - Novak - join forces to dethrone the King, or rather the God, of Clay.

We can only hope it'll happen.

I don't mind if Rafa won Wimbledon or US Open this year. Just stop hogging the FO.

I'd much rather he take RG than Wimbledon. I don't think the defense will hold up as well on the faster surfaces (as usual). I'm also surprised by how much he's been playing in the last few months, it's quite remarkable. There's reason to believe he'll be burned out by the end of the summer.

The only human that can put an end to this insane freak of nature is Djokovic. If he cannot do it, no one is stopping Nadal.

What will the Tennis Gods say?

Is it the will of the heavens for Nadal to win an 8th French title?

Or will there be a new champion?

Delpo and Murray might not play. So, there's that...

kalyan4fedever 05-19-2013 07:49 AM

Murray should definitely play :D

Surely, Delpo should have recovered by then. He only had URTI? He should be good by now.

Warmaster 05-19-2013 07:54 AM

If Federer draws Murray he has a great chance to reach the final again! Cmon Andy, don't let us down!

There was an article today in an Argentinian newspaper saying, iirc, the recovery was taking longer and that the possibly of him playing was being avoided. I can't find the article again, sorry. Hope he recovers in time, though.

Ico 05-19-2013 07:58 AM

Yeah, if there's any silver lining in this match, it's that Nadal will now be more rightfully seeded at RG. I'm sure Roger is happy that they'll be on opposite sides. Although I get the feeling Andy will withdraw just to keep up his reputation of trolling.
