JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO
Possessing immense power, Del Potro is capable of hitting anyone off the court on his day but facing Nadal at the French Open is the ultimate test of a tennis player's credentials. The Argentine will need to play on the edge and go for the lines as anything less will not be good enough against the King of Clay, but sustaining such a level for the duration of a Grand Slam match is a feat few have managed in the past. There is a template for success in this style; that of Stan Wawrinka's famous victory over an on-fire Novak Djokovic in the 2015 final, but such performances are rare and it will take something similar to pull off an upset here.
If Del Potro can nick the first set he will give himself a fighting chance but he will have to play lights out tennis throughout. The longer the match goes on, it will favour Rafa, with the world number one favoured to come through in four sets and sustain his hopes of an 11th Roland-Garros crown.
