With Djokovic's withdrawal, Zverev is now favorite in my book. He has the weapons to win this. If he faces Alcaraz in final, he knows how to win against him.
Before that, deminaur and then Ruud would be greater challenge
Have to say Z was looking real good in his match in the few games that I saw him.

My predictions for the semifinals are still on track:
Djokovic
Zverev
Tsitsipas
Dimitrov


Dimitrov will play Zverev in the final and beat him.
_______
Quarterfinal predictions:

- Dimitrov will show everyone that Yannick > Jannik when it comes to Roland Garros.
- Tsitsipas will finally Escape from Alcaraz, but an injury may help him.
- Zverev will slay The Minotaur
- Djokovic will not lose to Casper the Ghost because it would be Ruud to his fans*

There is a 3.14% Djokovic's TaoPatch may not heal him in time, and he might have to retire due to injury either before or during the match.
Sorry, your predictions went to hell. There was no world in which both Sinner and Alcaraz were going to lose in the quarters. I put them as winners in a 4-leg parlay along with Ruud beating Fritz and Cerundolo taking a set from Djokovic in which I am ready to collect.

Yeah. Dimitrov beating Sinner and Tsitsipas beating Alcaraz were extreme longshots.

With who is left in the quarterfinals, most likely it will be Ruud vs Alcaraz in the finals with Alcaraz winning.

It looks like it will be
Zverev

Rune losing to Zverev in 5 sets: sad especially when he played as good as he did
Djokovic winning against Cerundolo: Nice win, whether or not he can win against Casper will show where his form is at currently
For QFS:
Sinner defeats Dimitrov in 4 or 5: trust me, clay is =/= to hard, so I think Dimitrov can grab a set unlike Miami
Alcaraz defeats Tsitsipas in 5: Tsitsipas has had a good clay season, and I think he will push Alcaraz here.
Djokovic defeat Ruud in 5 or 4: I think Djoker is in good form, and so I think he will win.
Zverev defeat De Minaur in 3: Yeah, Zverev is too good on clay for a flat hitter like DeMinaur.
So pretty much on track except Sinner defeats Dimitrov in 3 instead of 4 or 5 and Alcaraz defeats Tsitsipas in 3.
Only Miss is Djok retiring from the match. WHY DO ALL THE PLAYERS I CHEER FOR ALWAYS LOSE/RETIRE.
Semis Predictions:
Zverev Defeats Ruud in 5
Sinner Defeats Alcaraz in 5
Finals:
Sinner Defeats Zverev in 5

I think those are pretty good calls, assuming Zed gets past AdM beforehand. I see the final- in that scenario- as
about a tossup. Maybe it'll happen!

Could be. But he was favorite in FO 22 and joint favorite in AO 24 also, till he faced Zverev

Zeverev looked shaky and breakable in his italian open final against less than top 10 caliber player. Zeverev has a chance if its super hot sunday and conditions are really fast, but if cold dampy slow, then Alcarez should win his first french open

Any thoughts on the other participants? I've got Carrot and Zed about even chances, Ruud definitely still in the mix, and
AdM not eliminated yet (kudos to him). About the mouthy, protected, hyped latest Spaniard I have nothing to say at this time.

You might know already: Djokovic is going to be operated on today at Paris.
Wimbledon might be off, Olympics perhaps possible.

Imagine if Djokovic wasn't injured and we got Seed #1-4 in the SFs?

Can't recall the last slam we had that. Must have happened only once in the last 10 years? After Murray was gone and Thiem took over maybe.

Last time at RG 2019, Djoker-Thiem and Rafa-Fed.

The reason is because the bottom half of the male draw was played first, i.e. on odd days. For the same reason, SF Djokovic-Nadal at RG 2013 was played first in the order.

Ah, thanks amigo!
I thought they took expected entertainment into consideration...

To Boris Becker on Eurosport,

Gottfriend von Cramm as a German won Roland Garros twice (1934, 1936), and Henner Henkel won it once (1937).

I know it was the N a z i era, but still.

Interesting to note the 3 previous fates of Nadal's victors.

Soderling loses in 3
Novak loses in 4
Novak wins in 5
Zverev loses or wins in 5

Zverev is a hack player, so it was just a matter of when instead of how he would be beaten in this final. Tennis--for the moment--escapes being stained by that talentless hack / violent offender winning a major.

Oh my god. Another break.

Carlos will lose this match if he doesn’t play about 15 times better than this. He will lose before the QFs if he doesn’t play about 100 times better than this by the QFs. Hell, he might even lose to Korda even if he does play better.

And let’s not even discuss Sinner or Zverev.
How about now, B!TCH?!

Zverev’s one-dimensional game exposed by a player who used variety to disrupt his rhythm including bringing the tall oaf to the net often to expose his dreadful volleying ’skills’.
well said, was saying the same thing while watching...just too one-dimensional....think it shows his best chance is still on hardcourt too...grass and clay just requires too much of him to defeat someone as versatile as Carlos
