Predicting men’s and women’s winners for the French Open
With the 2019 French Open starting Sunday in Paris, we accumulated 14 of our ESPN tennis specialists to gather their insight and get their picks during the current year’s competition.
Will Rafael Nadal win a bewildering twelfth title at Roland Garros or will Novak Djokovic complete the “Djoker Slam”? Will Simona Halep rehash or can Kiki Bertens proceed with her outstanding play and leap forward on the ladies’ side? Who are the dim steed contenders? What’s more, would anyone say anyone is picking untouched greats Roger Federer or Serena Williams?
Darren Cahill: Novak Djokovic. He’s playing for his very own place in history by holding each of the four majors immediately for the second time in his profession. His structure is solid, and he looks prepared for the physical and mental test Roland Garros conveys.
Rennae Stubbs: Nadal. Winning Rome is the ideal get ready to give him the conviction that he by and by is the top choice. His dirt court structure was somewhat troubling, notwithstanding for his principles, however after Rome, I am certain we will see 12 French Open titles toward the finish of the two weeks for Rafa – and shocking on the off chance that we do.
Diminish Bodo: Nadal. Of course, he lost a couple of matches on earth this year. In any case, the best-of-five configuration makes a huge difference, and you need to take the 11-time French Open boss’ success over Djokovic in the Italian Open a week ago as a sign.
Alyssa Roenigk: Djokovic. In spite of the fact that 11-time champ Nadal ate up Djokovic on mud at the Italian Open a weekend ago, the Spaniard looked moderate in the early mud swing, losing in the elimination round in Barcelona (to Thiem) and Madrid (to Stefanos Tsitsipas). That opens the entryway for Djokovic, who with a success at Roland Garros will hold each of the four Grand Slam titles at the same time.
D’Arcy Maine: Looking for his third straight title and twelfth generally speaking at Roland Garros, can anybody yet Nadal truly be considered here? Riding high off a great win over Djokovic in the Italian Open last, the Spaniard looks prepared to remind everybody exactly why he’s considered the “Ruler of Clay.”Now take a look at how these features of 파워볼.
And while he appears to be more conquerable than he has been in different years – he lost in the elimination rounds in both Barcelona and Madrid – despite everything it appears to be difficult to think anybody has a superior possibility of leaving with the trophy at Nadal’s preferred competition.
