French Open

French open logo Roland Garros looks all set for a potential Nadal-Federer clash as the top 2 seeds have eased their way through the qualifying rounds without having to break a sweat, especially Roger.. who lost his only set against Robredo.. His only block before the final might be Canas.. who has defeated the champ in their previous two meetings..

The prospect of winning the french open looks all the while more difficult for Rafael.. who might have to be facing a much improved Fedex with the latter changing his game a bit according to the slow paced, high bounced clay court.. Canas will be facing a tough opponent in Davydenko, a russian who is known for his resilience….

Fedex in action

Nadal meanwhile has to face countryman Moya after making mincemeat of the tenacious Hewitt, the latter being out of focus for quite a period of time now..

Coming to the women’s draw, the favorites are clearly Maria, Serena and Henin.. Serena looks in good nick and this may not look good for the others… Clearly there seem to be a lot of dark horses here and Vaidisova is in really good form…

Absolutely no need to mention ‘Chaani’ Mirza who has been humbled by some unknowns in both formats of the game… Atleast there is hope for Mahesh Bhupathi, who seems to have a decent run so far at the open..

Whatever the outcome of the french open is,, it may be noted that an upset is definitely not ruled out but upset victories over Nadal or Fedex are unlikely to occur.. and in which case their rankings wont get affected as they are way ahead of the rest.. with Fedex 7500 something and nadal at 5300 odd… The next one is placed at just below the 3k mark… Anyways Roland Garros is not something to be missed… so u better watch out for the action on star sports ( geez… not to mention the tiny scorecard that they display making it difficult for viewers to see even who is playing he he )…
