French Open – Federer vs Djokovic

Novak Djokovic - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE – Result – Roger Federer beat Novak Djokovic, 7-6(5), 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5) and will play Nadal in the final

This will be a great match in and of itself, the all time Grand Slam leader and former French Open champion Roger Federer against the unbeaten in 2011 Novak Djokovic.

Add to that a little spice, in that if Djokovic wins, he will become the ATP World Number one on Monday, knocking Rafael Nadal off his perch, even if Nadal were to go on and win the title for a sixth time. Of course, if Rafa loses against Murray in the match preceding this one, Nole will already be lined up for number one, regardless of the outcome of this match.

Yet don’t forget – even if Nole has won all three matches between the two in 2011, Federer still holds a 13-9 lead in the head to head, with 2-1 on clay.

I’m going to put my neck out and pick an upset – Roger Federer, three sets to two :) .

French Open – Nadal vs Soderling

UPDATE – Result – Rafael Nadal beat Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-1, 7-6

Rafael Nadal famously lost to Robin Soderling in 2009, only to revenge that quarter final loss last year by beating the Swede in the final.

With a head to head in Nadal’s favour of 5-2, you would think it would be all Rafa, but Soderling is playing great tennis, and I for one will be relieved if the Spaniard can battle through. Rafa in four sets.

French Open – Federer vs Monfils

Gael Monfils - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE – Result – Roger Federer beat Gael Monfils, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6

Having beaten the much favoured David Ferrer, the home favourite Gael Monfils has his chance to play the mighty Roger Federer.

Monfils beat Federer the last time the two met -also in Paris (2010 Masters) – but Federer had won the five only matches before that. Can Fed make it to yet another semifinal, this time against Novak Djokovic?

French Open – Nadal vs Ljubicic

UPDATE – Result – Rafael Nadal beat Ivan Ljubicic 7-5, 6-3, 6-3

Rafael Nadal probably expected to play Fernando Verdasco, but Ivan Ljubicic caused an upset to make it through. Nadal and Ljubicic have played eight times before, with Rafa winning six of those.

With Ljubicic now 32, surely his very best days are past, and he will struggle to beat Nadal for the first time on clay. Three sets, Nadal wins.

French Open – Federer vs Wawrinka

Stanislas Wawrinka

Stanislas Wawrinka - Link to ATP Profile

UDPATE – Result: Roger Federer beat Stanislas Wawrinka, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5

The two Swiss pros have played nine times before, with Roger Federer winning eight of those.

Stanislas Wawrinka‘s only win came on clay in 2009 – that must give him at least a small window of hope, but my pick is for Fed to win in four sets – the first real challenge for him to overcome.

French Open – Nadal vs Veic

Antonio Veic

Antonio Veic - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE – Result: Rafael Nadal beat Antonio Veic 6-1, 6-3, 6-0

Rafael Nadal will play the 227th ranked Antonio Veic for the first time after the Croat pulled off a big surprise in beating Nikolay Davydenko in five sets.

Rafa hasn’t convinced to date, looking slow around the court and lacking consistency in the length of his shots. Will this the match where the real King of Clay shows up?

UPDATE – Result: Roger Federer beat Janko Tipsarevic by 6-1, 6-4, 6-3

Federer has a 3-0 lead in the head to head, with the highlight of their previous matches being the Australian Open encounter in 2008 which the Swiss managed to hold by winning the fifth set by 10-8.

French Open – Nadal vs Andujar

Pablo Andujar

Pablo Andujar - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE – Result – Rafael Nadal fought off a tough challenge from Pablo Andujar to win 7-5, 6-3, 7-6.

Rafael Nadal has never played the 48th ranked Pablo Andujar before – surprising perhaps given that they are from the same country and age group (Andujar is just 4 months older than Rafa).

I’m banking on Nadal getting a chance to slam home a 3-0 and recover a bit from the “big” five setter against Isner.

Why Rafa will (with Federer’s help) fight off Djokovic off and hold on to No 1 – STILL!

Go on Rog, make him cry again

A few weeks ago I posted that Rafa would stay No 1 – he still can, with a little help from a friend.

I had picked that Rafa Nadal would win Rome and Roland Garros and therefore hold on to the ATP No. 1 ranking until at least the beginning of Wimbledon.

Unfortunately I underestimated Novak Djokovic, who continued his amazing run of form to beat Rafa in Rome.

But now it is Paris. Five sets, Grand Slam tennis.

And Rafa has a trump card this time in… Roger Federer, who could be the one to knock Nole off his perch in the semis and allow the Mallorcan to stay atop, just… just…just maybe… a little longer.

Here is the calculation, should Nadal win, and Djokovic fall in semis:

Nadal

Djokovic

Balance 23rd May (before the French Open)

-2000

SO VAMOS RAFA and…VAMOS FED! :)

French Open – Federer vs Teixeira

Maxime Teixeira - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE – Result was that Roger Federer beat Maxime Teixeira by 6-3, 6-0, 6-2

Maxime Teixera from France is ranked 181 in the world, and has never played Roger Federer before.

In fact he seems to be so unknown that his ATP Profile lacks a photo, and basic bio and stats! Maybe tomorrow is his chance to make his name…nah, probably not :) .
