Once again, it should be Nadal (men's French Open predictions)


I almost feel like I could copy and paste my predictions for the men's draw at the French Open—which is mere hours away from starting—and come up with the same result:

Rafael Nadal's going to win.

Now, I know there's been some talk out there about how his draw is easy compared with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer's, but his draw would look easier no matter who he played. I think he shouldn't be too troubled, and here, in true TTA? fashion, is the breakdown/prediction/call from the round of 16 on:

Round of 16
Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Andreas Seppi (22)
Stanislas Wawrinka (18) vs. Thomaz Bellucci
Roger Federer (3) vs. Feliciano Lopez (15)
Juan Martin del Potro (9) vs. Tomas Berdych (7)
David Ferrer (6) vs. Marcel Granollers (20)
Alexandr Dolgopolov (16) vs. Andy Murray (4)
Janko Tipsarevic (8) vs. Nicolas Almagro (12)
Juan Monaco (13) vs. Rafael Nadal (2)

Quarterfinals
Djokovic vs. Wawrinka
Federer vs. del Potro
Ferrer vs. Dolgopolov
Almagro vs. Nadal

Semifinals
Djokovic over Federer
Nadal over Ferrer

Finals
Nadal over Djokovic

The women's prediction post is coming soon!
