The 2015 Roland Garros event begins this Sunday 24 May with 16 women’s and 16 men’s first round singles matches. #RG15 (the official Twitter hashtag), is poised to be especially interesting with the lack of usual clay court form by the King of Clay: Rafael Nadal, whose currently ranked No.7. Rafa won his ninth title last year from the past ten years by defeating the form player of 2015 Novak Djokovic in the final even after Djokovic won the 1st set. Despite Nadal’s falling clay court form the past two years you cannot help but think once Rafa is playing at Roland Garros with career record is 66-1, all the memories of success and confidence will elevate his current game by a good 20 per cent.
Djokovic has a 35-2 win loss record so far in 2015 capturing five singles titles. Djokovic though has never won at Stade Roland Garros yet the pressure to complete his Grand Slam set, throws a different spin on the rest of the tournaments he has ruled this year.
Roger Federer is the last player to defeat Djokovic this year (in the final of the Dubai Open). Federer is 25-5 this year with three singles titles and a clay court schedule that points to one big push for a second Roland Garros title. His record Grand Slam singles tally would then stand at 18 and most importantly, a four Slam lead on arch-rival Nadal. A 10th win for Rafa would move him to 15 Slams just two behind Federer and being 4 years younger than Federer, Roger is aware of things like this!
Andy Murray has proven to be in his career best clay form after winning his first career clay court title at the ATP 250 Munich Open. The following week Murray scored an impressive first ever clay court win against Rafa and by 6-3 6-2 in the final of the Madrid Open Masters 1000. Murray made the semi finals last year at Roland Garros and like his previous French semi he fell to Nadal. Murray has a 31-5 record this season and his current clay form outshines Nadal’s 2015 clay court performances.
Kei Nishikori looks to the strongest threat of players yet to win a Grand Slam to the Fab Four. The 2014 US Open he won throughout to his first Grand Slam final and at the 2015 Australian Open he was halted in the quarter finals by defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka.
This year Kei’s record is 31-7 with two titles and to his credit both defended titles: the Memphis Open and ATP 500 Barcelona Open on clay. Nishikori has only been pipped by the two hottest players on clay in 2015 i.e. a quarter final loss to eventual Roma Open Masters 1000 champion (Djokovic) and in the semis by 2015 champion Andy Murray.
Nishikori is 0-7 head to head versus Nadal but has beaten Murray and a pair of wins against both Federer and Djokovic. The draw is being held tomorrow and its possible that Djokovic, Murray and Nadal are all bundled in the same half, leaving Federer and Nishikori the task of only having to beat one of the three favourites for the Championship.
