The Best are Back in Town
In Madrid the best players in the world are back all in one tournament following a few smaller competitions, but the best thing is- Djokovic isn’t playing which means that anyone can win it. Again preparation for Roland Garros is the most important thing to take from this tournament but it would give any player great confidence to take home the silverware.
Last year’s champion has had a poor start to his clay season experiencing lots of shocks and no titles but he can bounce back here with a win. In a crowded side of the draw featuring the likes of Federer, Wawrinka and Dimitrov he will have to play very well, but I expect him to at least get to the final.
Kei has had a very good season and is showing signs that he is capable to fight amongst the world’s elite. After a title win in Barcelona, where we tipped him up, he will be brimming with confidence and this guy is a contender not just for this tournament but for the French Open as well. He will be too good for his easy half of the draw and should at least reach the final. He reached the final last year and should do it again.
