French Open 2016 predictions

Sad, an era might be coming to an end.  No Federer in a slam since...the last century.  His days of winning slams are over, but he was still a top ten player with an elegant style the likes of which will never be seen.

BUT, this is Djokovic's time. Oh so close last year, and just one unreal Wawrinka in the French Open away from having the best year in tennis history, he has, improbably, shown that he could top that in 2016.

He should be the firm favorite although he may have a few more obstacles in his way this year than he did in 2015.  I expect him to win it, but with a few hiccups.

However, this is a different prediction: a "no guts, no glory" version.



QF: Djokovic > Ferrer, Rafa > Goffin, Wawrinka > Pouille, Murray > Nishikori
SF: Djokovic > Rafa, Murray > Wawrinka
F: Djokovic > Murray


QF: Vika > Serena, Keys > Falconi, Muguruza > Vinci, Halep > Garcia
SF: Vika > Keys, Halep > Muguruza
F: Vika > Halep
