The 2019 French Open really comes down to these 4 athletes to me - Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Simona Halep. If one of their names isn't called to hold up the trophy at the end of the single's matches, it will be a let down or at least a pretty big upset.
Of course that doesn't mean the competition won't be stiff. Novak Djokovic is still playing. Would it surprise anyone if he wins? And on the women's side you have the up-and-coming Naomi Osaka who has already won 2 straight Grand Slams. And of course Petra Kvitova and Kiki Bertens are favorites for this tournament as well.
But, come on, all eyes will be on Roger Federer first and foremost. This will be the first French Open for him since 2015. So it will be fascinating to see how he makes his way through what I would expect to be at least the quarter and semifinals.
And then defending champ Rafael Nadal. If he wins this year, he will extend his record of French Open wins with 12. That's insane. He owns this court and this event so he is and should be the odds-on favorite to win.
And then you have Serena Williams. She will going for her 24th grand slam win, and 4th at Roland Garros. I really hope its possible and see her and Simona Halep in the finals. Not sure if the bracket will allow that but even it its just in the semis, that'd be a highlight.
My prediction is Nadal and Halep repeating. Yessir, defending champs again. That's what I would like to see anyways... How do you think it'll play out? Any others you think can beat out the favorites?
