Djokovic and Nadal could meet in French Open semifinals

Get Ready The Djoker- Round Two

Get Ready The Djoker- Round Two

For the first time in three years, Rafael Nadal will bounce through the Roland Garros gates at the peak of his powers and favourite to take his collection of French Open titles to 10. However, the bottom line is that he made the Australian Open final at the expense of younger players in Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov.

World number one Novak Djokovic has never triumphed in Paris. I have been pretty lucky with that the last couple of years.

That includes six matches in the men's singles and six in the women's singles.

"But another early loss, this time at the French Open, would not be good for him".

It's unclear if the 56th-ranked Bouchard will be able to play as she suffered an ankle injury at this week's Nuremberg Cup.

Rafael Nadal won his fifth French Open title by defeating Sweden's Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 in 2010.

The Spaniard, written off as a contender in Paris after a quarter-final loss to Novak Djokovic in 2015 and an injury-enforced pull-out before the third round past year, arrives at Roland Garros as the new favourite to add the 2017 title to victories in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

"I don't know the details of their agreement".

Agassi and Lendl are just two of a growing group of former top players who are working with leading men.

After reaching her first Grand Slam final at the US Open last summer, Pliskova won titles in Brisbane and Doha and earned back-to-back semi-final spots in Indian Wells and Miami.

Nadal's form this season has been impressive overall and devastating on the clay-court surface. Then things can go well or bad, but I think I am ready to play well at the Roland Garros.

Djokovic can't boast the same confidence as his Spanish rival after struggling with form and confidence recently.

And he told the assembled media in Paris that he feels "much better", following another bout of sickness earlier this week. "Their level of tennis is quite fantastic. I definitely see him as probably the number one favourite for this title".

While the five-time grand slam champion was denied a wildcard, Roger Federer will not be in Paris of his own accord, opting to skip the clay-court season in order to prepare for challenges to come on the grass and hard surfaces. Murray won nine of his last 12 tournaments in 2016, including Wimbledon, as he overhauled Djokovic's huge lead at the top of the world rankings.

"It's an awesome feeling to be back and to look at this trophy". Really important for Djokovic to get back to what you brought up. He has built one of the more successful careers in the modern game through intense and relentless selfbelief.

Novak Djokovic's decision to work with American great Andre Agassi at the French Open could be an inspired move as he seeks to recover his lost spark, according to John McEnroe.

The 26-year-old said: "I guess it's a situation that's slightly unique to me and something that I have experienced over the last two years as I have been playing a lot of tournaments".

Champion Garbine Muguruza faces a tough defense of her title at Roland Garros, with a host of awkward encounters blocking her path. That's why I was playing tennis, to win Wimbledon. These tournaments are so strong, so it's incredible for me to go that far. "But that's it. No, no, I am very happy the way that I arrived here".
