    I'd like to see wawrinka defending his title, if not I think murray might pull it off. How about you?
    I'd like to see Djokovic finally get over the line but could easily see Wawrinka spoiling the party again or Murray. Nadal has been improving and if the Djokovic Nadal semi happens I'm sure it'll be a lot closer than last year but I think Djokovic should have enough to beat him again. I'd say Nishikori is a dark horse

    Murray came through against Stepanek in 5 sets. But I must say, despite losing the third set 6-0, Stepanek was the better player and deserved to win. He was pretty unlucky in the end.

    Wow in years gone by when there was a slam going on this thread would be going ten to the dozen. Now, nothing.

    He's definitely looking good so far and with no pressure it wouldn't be shocking if he puts a run together and gets no. 10 this year

    Yeah, he's steamrolled through his first two rounds so its already better than last year, I think he can pull it off

    It's understandable i think.

    Djokovic is being fairly dominant but he's not playing as well as recent years, Murray does not have the most attractive playing style (and only the Murray fanboys believe he'll win the French albeit i was wrong about Wimbledon), Federer has withdrawn (still a massive draw for fans even as he ages), Nadal is not what he once was (mentally especially) and last year the young guns basically all went backward showing themselves to be pretenders. There's simply not the glitz of past years at the moment, we're kind of in limbo as we await the rise of a new set of players or a late rivalry.

    I was pinning my hopes on Del Potro shaking things up but he's still in the progress stage (in fairness it took until early 2012 to reach his former peak last time, so a little over a year before he was really on it).

    Really wish Djokovic would stop making so many unforced errors and work on his drop shots and volleys. He can't afford to fail at those 80% of the time.

    Will be interesting to see the impact Nadal's withdrawal has on the rest of the tournament now. Probably even more pressure on Djokovic now so it'll be interesting to see how he deals with that. Also with Nadal gone there's a huge chance for either Thiem, Zverev or Granollers to reach their first slam QF which might be the spark the new generation needs to kick on

    Surely Djokovic won't mess up this opportunity now. Sad times for Nadal and Federer, the old guard is starting to fall away.
    But the breakthrough from the younger generation has been a long time coming.

    I'm going to predict a Djokovic-Thiem semi final and a Murray-Wawrinka semi final. Let's see what happens.

    I have a feeling that this tournament is going to be blown wide open and one of the young guns will clinch the title. Dominic Thiem might just be the guy.

    This tournament has the same feel as Wimbledon 2013 with Nadal and Federer out early and tons of big names getting injured and having to withdraw from the tournament. The women's final that year was unpredictable but we still had a pretty typical Djokovic- Murray final so I still expect players who've been in a slam final before to pull through

    Easily the most unentertaining French Open of all time. Tennis is not tennis without Federer and Nadal.
    The rain is also soooo annoying, for the past 2 days there's hardly been any tennis );
