Let’s start with recalling the major events preceding the French Open 2016.
Rafael Nadal has lifted two titles: in Monte-Carlo and in Barcelona. Novak Djokovic was defeated in Rome and Monte-Carlo and has recorded a 0-6 in one of the sets against Bellucci. Andy Murray has performed in Madrid final and celebrated victory in Rome. Roger Federer has missed most of the season and won’t participate at Roland Garros. Now let’s look closer at the main favorites.
Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros 2016
The Serb is the clear favorite to the French Open title. However, Novak has already been beaten several times this season with fitness being the main question mark this time. If he makes easy run to the semis (most probably versus Nadal), he’ll likely face Murray in the final encounter and will blow him out. The two opening rounds of Novak are pretty easy. Then we guess it’ll be Federico Delbonis, Bautista Agut and David Ferrer. All of the guys are not very challenging for the World No.1.
Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros 2016
Nadal’s route will be more difficult with Fabio Fognini on his way. The Italian is capable of taking edge over the Spaniard. Then Dominic Thiem who has also defeated Rafa this season and the winner of the Goffin/Tsonga clash. But! Keep it in mind that Nadal, unlike Djokovic, tends to play better with every single match. So shall he survive it till the encounter with Djokovic, he’ll apply much stronger pressure on the Serb than he did last year.
Andy Murray at Roland Garros 2016
Andy Murray will clash with Radek Stepanek in the first round, not the easiest opponent, frankly speaking. The Czech has not much odds in the best-of-five-set format, but he has it all to give a pain in the neck to Murray. If it goes fine, then the Scot will take on Benoit Paire whose fitness leaves much o be desired and Kei Nishikori in the quarters. It’s going to be a very curios match to watch but the Japanese shouldn’t prevent Murray from getting into the last 4. (Shall it be Kyrgios, the outcome will be the same). In the semis we expect to see Stan who appears to have found his tennis.
These are the main favorites to the French Open title. We don’t see anyone else capable of making a dent in the men’s draw. The main intrigue is whether Nadal will make it to the semis or not. Right now it’s hard to say who will be stronger in the probable semifinal encounter Djokovic – Nadal. As for Murray, he is obliged to make the most of his half of the draw and take the court in the final battle.
Who else can shock us? Probably, Nick Kyrgios. The Aussie shows very good tennis this year. David Ferrer gains speed and doesn’t look like he’s going to make a pause. Stan Wawrinka seems to be tuning in but we don’t believe in Stan defending the title (the Swiss has displayed only a couple of decent matches this season). Kei Nishikori can make a deep run but Japan’s player always despises clay.
So all in all there’re three favorites: Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray who’ll struggle for the title.

Everything in this match counts in favor of the Spaniard. Nadal, as a real locomotive, took long to get into stride. But having accelerated he becomes unstoppable. Rafa performed well in Madrid
Such evaluation of Gasquet from the bookmakers is understandable. The Frenchman lost his two previous encounters in a row to Monaco and Nadal, which is a sign of a bad form from Richard.
