    A new Brit in the men's top 100?

    From the BBC.

    With the emphasis on "new", clearly. Currently ranked 108, but been as high as 71.

    Heady times ahead.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    That may be Rafa's least deserving title ever. Nishikori outplayed him for a set and a half and then his body fell apart. Poor Nishi

    rafa is looking very vulnerable heading into rome and paris…i guess that day had to come at some point, nothing is for ever…nole being injured is going to help him though and he could still end up winning both!

    Yeah a fully fit Novak would be favourite for the French you'd imagine.

    Nadal hasn't looked this dodgy since 2011 probably (and even then he was losing to Novak and no one else).

    Perfect time for Stan to get back-to-back slams or for Federer to pinch another French. Pity Del Potro is injured.

    Well Novak's not exactly in prime-form, and Murray is hopeless ATM. You really could think it could be an outsider, but who exactly?

    After talking about the phallic nature of Sharapova's last trophy, the Madrid ones take the spiky dildoed biscuit.

    Haha yeah I could not believe what the Madrid trophy looked like.

    After Nadal lost to Ferrer a Monte Carlo, it looked like Novak was going to become favourite with the bookies, but then he lost to Federer and the news about the severity of his wrist injury came out.

    The thing about picking outsiders over the last 5 years or so, whenever you mention them it seems stupid and unlikely until it actually happens and that player goes deep (e.g. Delpo, Soder (though he didn't win) and Stan). So the ones who could legitimately challenge are Stan (and do we even call him an outsider anymore?), Berdych (but we know he won't), Nishikori and perhaps Dimitrov. You probably have to say Ferrer too since he made the final last year, but I think his loss to an injury hampered Nishikori was not a good sign.

    Maybe Novak's wrist will be okay by the time the French rolls around and if he gets some easy early matches he can get himself in some form. But personally, Federer at $23 is pretty tempting.

    Wins it, including beating Nadal in the final.

    Roland Garros is wide open (relatively speaking)!

    Have you had a look at the French draw yet? Who's your tips to be the 8 quarter-finalists?

    I'll go:
    Nadal
    Ferrer
    Wawrinka
    Gasquet
    Bautista-Agut
    Gulbis
    Nishikori
    Djokovic

    Nish vs. Klizan is a tough first round match though..

    Er, Wawrinka? Can't see anybody challenging Nadal-Djockovic now.
