In order:
Novak is at 90%, but it is physical. There is something off with his body.
Sinner will do better, but he is really more at home on hards. He will do well, but not the fabulous start of the season that he has had.
Naomi just doesn't like clay. Add to that that she is coming back, and it does not say anything about her winning a lot of matches.
Halep will not be a force. The extended lay off was too long.
Iga will dominate on clay. Carlitos is not a force on it, so no sweeping on the men's side.

Generally agree except I do think Carlos is a major force on clay..I would bet on him to win RG and maybe one of the preps...Monte Carlo maybe...Sinner could win Madrid, conditions are faster there because of altitude...

OH, come on now. Let's all hop on the bandwagon that Alcaraz is All Washed Up, and Hail GOAT Sinner. (NOT that I'm saying you're on the Sinner GOAT Boat, especially concerning this year's Roland Garros. I just like hyperbole is all).

Carlos is not a force?!!? Obviously, he's been off since last year's Wimbledon. BUT- he's made the SF's and QF's at Roland Garros, and won 7 clay tournaments. Unless he takes more a dip in results- I think Your Favorite Zit-Head can be counted on as a force at any clay tournament- most definitely including Roland Garros. :gorgeous:

Again, I said he is NOT A FORCE. Is he good? Of course he is; he is a spaniard and probably grew up sprinkling his patatas bravas with the stuff. But it is not as if he dominates on clay completely. I say he will compete well on clay but if he goes 0-4 in the Clay Slam (MC, MAD, Rome and RG) I will not be surprised.

On clay, who are the best players today? in order:
Men
1. Alcaraz
2. Zverev
3. Djokovic?
4. Sinner
5. Ruud
6. Rublev

Women:
1. Swiatek
2. Sabalenka
3. Rybakina
4. Krejcikova
5, Pavlyuchenkova
6. Kostyuk
7. Anisimova
8. Samsonova
9. Vondrousova
10. Svitolina
Gauff, Sakkari are probably next...

This is entirely on how good their game is, and how suited to clay .eg Gauff is very good but I think her strengths are better suited to faster surfaces. Osaka we just don't know ..Muchova who knows...

Disagree on Ruud. I can't see him sitting at 5 when he has reached consecutive RG finals.

Nothing against Ruud but it is fair to point out that he has never won even a 500 level event ...

Did not know that fact.
I say Sinner is (on clay) level with him. But at RG, I give him the nod over Zverev. And I would like to see him going against Carlitos.

What about Tsitsipas on clay? I’d put Gauff in the Top 10 on the strength of making the French final.
