Poll - who will win mens' French Open this year?

Yes I know its ridiculously far-off, but just for fun, who do you
reckon will win it this year, out of the following? Could this be the
year for someone other than a pure claycourt specialist, or will it be
another Spaniard/South American?

Federer
Safin
Hewitt
Gaudio
Coria
Ferrero
Moya
Nalbandian
Robredo
Nadal

Other (please specify)

I think that you can add Canas in your list.

Forgot about Canas...he had a good year last year and is due a decent
run at Roland Garros.

Henman of course.

Its unlikely Henman will get a draw as nice as he got last year. Also
I think players will be bit more wary of him this year - last year one
of the reasons he did so well at French Open was that nobody was
expecting him to do well, and he was playing without pressure.

Hello, Invisible. I just don't know about the top players to hazard a
guess. With my very limited knowledge, though, if I was FORCED to make a
prediction, I would pick Federer. I know that's not a very exciting pick
but it's the best that I can do.

If healthy, which is very very big if, Gustavo Kuerten. Of course,
this has not been the case for the last three years. I would pick
Federer.

Re: Poll - who will win mens' French Open this year?

I would give it to Federer after he lost AO

Nicholay Davydenko

take Hewitt off the list and add Henman.

Not if Henman doesn't get his back sorted out. Looks as though it
could be a real problem for him this year.
