THE PREDICTION

Rafa Nadal embarks on yet another Roland Garros campaign aiming to defend he crown he won last year in what was his record 12th crown in Paris. His record is truly sensational here having won 93 matches and only losing two in 15 years so he will be confident to going all the way again this time around too. His preparations have not been what they usually are this year and that could impact him along with the cold weather. He has what will be a gentle opener in this first round against Egor Gerasimov who makes his first appearance in the main draw at Roland Garros and Nadal should wrap this up comfortably in straight sets.
