He may have won nine of the last 10 French Open tournaments but there are still a lot of tennis fans who believe Rafael Nadal will not be the man to beat at Roland Garros this summer. A disappointing first third of 2015 has seen the Spaniard slip down to fifth in the rankings, his lowest position in two years, and there are a number of players heading into the second grand slam of the year in much better form than Nadal, not least Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic has continued his reign at the top of the world rankings after a sensational start to the year that included winning his fifth Australian Open title. The Serbian star knows that winning his first French Open crown this summer would complete a career slam of major titles, not to mention increase the belief he could complete a clean sweep of grand slams this year. The 27-year-old has twice been a beaten finalist in Paris, but there is little doubt Djokovic will arrive in France in the best form of his career and it is no surprise to see the Serb topping the betting odds ahead of Nadal with a lot of bookmakers as we edge closer to the second grand slam of 2015.
