Daniela Gantuchova, former fifth former world number five and 2008 Australian Open semifinalist, has said her favorite to win Roland Garros is not 13-time champion Rafael Nadal but fifth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece. Last weekend, Tsitsipas won his second consecutive tournament in Monte Carlo, Monaco, which also takes place on the mainland.

“I think Stefanos tops this list [of Roland Garros favorites]. He’s going to prepare well at other primers tournaments. I think he’s the favorite for the tournaments in Madrid and in Rome. He got very close to Novak Djokovic in Rome and in Paris last year.”

Roland Garros will be held from May 22 to June 5.
