Of those are Nadal's main challengers then this one is in the bag for him.
Probably one challenger of Nadal I missed is probably injury or Cilic which I didn't mention in my article.
Nadal will in at a canter. He has the easiest route to a final, maybe ever.
I had him as favourite even before the final but with Thiem/ Joker/Zverev/ Wawrinka etc all on the other side of the draw. It should be a cakewalk!
I do hope that Thiem or Zverev make the final and can give Nadal a decent game in 5 sets. It's about time that the next generation stepped up and they need to translate their clay court masters form over a 5 set match with the top players, especially Zverev.
Neither Zverev or Thiem is taking Nadal five sets in Philippe Charter court - if they get there.
Red Cognescente Nadal might lose 1 set against Bolelli in 1st round as he is 3-0 down in 3rd set when play stopped yesterday due to rain.
Yes, but it is ring rust. Because he didn't have a first set match against Dolgopolov.
Normal service should resume.
Anyone here actually checking out any games or even highlights??
Haven't seen any of it apart from a few points in Del Potro's first match.
Very hard to see anyone other than Nadal winning comfortably, but would be nice to see just that little hope for the future.
Yes I have watched Serena's and Sharapova's matches plus Nadal's matches highlights on youtube.
I'm looking forward to Kyle Edmund's match today. Fognini will be tricky as he's a good clay court specialist but he's the type of opponent that a top 10 player would beat.
Now Serena and Sharapova will meet in 4th round match on Monday.That will be interesting as both players are playing well at the present time.
Looks like Rafa might lose v Schwartzman and it might be Muguruza v Stephens in final in women.If Nadal loses,I want either Thiem or Del Potro to win French Open this time.
Well done Thiem for getting into the final, it's clearly his best surface. He may get hammered in the final, but has done well to get there quite comfortably.
The women's finalvl should be worth watching just to see if Halep bottles it again. She should win this time though.
I disagree 9ctics.Sloanne Stephens has got the game to win against Halep tomorrow.Both ladies have played well throughout this tournament and both have great shots in their armoury.
Well done to Halep, very happy for her, she deserved it.
Nice to see that the last 3 Slams, there’s been a new Slam winner. With Stephens, Wozniaki and Halep
I did think the commentary was really biased in favour of Halep on ITV through. Who was that women, was it Bartholi?
I wanted Sloanne Stephens to win but I cannot begrudge Simona Halep's first Grand Slam win.So well done Halep.It looked as if she was very nervous in first two sets from her body language and gestures but she did quite well to win Roland Garros today.So well done Halep and well done Stephens on reaching final of a Grand Slam on her weakest surface i.e. clay.
Reckon Nadal to win the final 6-4 6-4 6-1.
The total score was 18-9 but finished 6-4 6-3 6-2 to Nadal.
Expected Thiem to do a lot better. Yes, Nadal is amazing on clay, but these guys aren’t even challenging him. Man against boys.
