I still insist Rafa is favourite at RG until I see him lose MP in the final. The court at Chatrier is even slower than here and we're already seeing how much extra time Rafa gets on the ball.
i dont know why people thought rafa isn't the fav, he is still defending champion and its rafa on clay, especially chatrier. i am hearing how this year the clay might play differently but who knows. im over here hoping that since federer is returning after 3 years, they return back to 2011 balls or w/e.

It's not much of a prediction if you call him the favourite until he loses a MP though is it? ;)
 
Interesting. There were no bagels in this matchup. Djokovic had 5 bagel setpoints in MC 2013 while Nadal had 2 in RG 2013. But they all were on return. Let's see what happens this time.
 
Is this officially sad yet? If he retires early in the 2nd the locals will not be kind.
He can't play but he can't quit. It ain't easy being Nole........
 
What is lucky about it? He is playing very well and Novak is below par. The result has been what it is. An annihilation. But I don't see the luck part.
Nadal has been unplayable so far but he is a bit lucky with the floating balls full stretch on the lines. Thats all Im saying
