Roland Garros is the toughest Grand Slam to win as said by many players, and this is because of the domination of Rafael Nadal over the last 15 years. Roland Garros has been moved back due to the coronavirus, will this move allow for players to better prepare to take on the King of Clay? Here is my pick for the 2020 Roland Garros Men's Singles title:
Roland Garros is one of a kind. Tennis on clay is a beautiful thing and it is unlike any other surface. Players are able to partake in extremely long rallies and show us their best game. Many over the years have tried to win it, but only a few have been able to. Rafael Nadal, the King of Clay, has won the tournament an astonishing 12 times in the last 15 years, and players like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Stan Wawrinka have struggled greatly in achieving only 1 title in Paris.
This year's tournament will be the toughest challenge yet for Nadal as he will not have had the training period on the clay courts as he usually does with tournaments prior to Roland Garros, however, in my opinion, this does not change a single thing. Nadal on clay is the toughest challenge in tennis history, and if Nadal is healthy, no one can beat him in Roland Garros. Nadal is 93-2 in Paris and he will achieve Roger Federer's Grand Slam record of 20 Grand Slams this year.
Take Nadal all the way.
