Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal or Carlos Alcaraz: one of these three will be the winner of the Roland Garros 2022. To know the conditions of Nadal, who despite everything will try and who despite everything cannot not be included in the catalog of the very favorites, probably we will have to wait the day-1.
The news is that the Spaniard and the Serbian could face each other in the quarter-finals, just like in 2006 and 2015. After the challenge with Jordan Thompson, the Spanish champion could find an old acquaintance like Stan Wawrinka.
Hypothetical third round with Fabio Fognini, who still has Alexei Popyrin and a qualifier on the road. As for the world number one, on a collision course with Yoshito Nishioka, the problems could only really arise at the foot of the quarter-finals with Diego Schwartzman.
In the upper part also Alexander Zverev and Alcaraz. On the Spaniard's side, in the second segment of the scoreboard, there is only the unknown factor Thiem, who in the season has not yet won a match.

Jannik Sinner obviously ends up in the last segment of the draw. After a qualifier, there could be Roberto Carballes Baena. Hypothetical third round with Nikoloz Basilashvili and in the round of 16, again according to the logic of the ranking, Andrey Rublev.
Number two of the draw obviously Daniil Medvedev, fresh from the brutal defeat in Geneva with Richard Gasquet, who to put it mildly is certainly not a clay-player. Considering the main draw, the favorite is Djokovic, for three simple reasons.
One, he comes from the victory in Rome, he is in physical shape and in confidence. Two, Rafael Nadal's physical condition is not excellent, one more reason to believe that Nole is the favorite. Alcaraz is certainly one of the players to beat, given the incredible season, but in a Grand Slam, on a fortnight, played to the best of five sets, there are more unknowns.
For Medvedev, Zevrev and Tsitsipas there could be a chance, more for the Greek and for the German, more at ease on clay-courts. But anyway after Nole, Rafa and Carlos. Outsiders? Casper Ruud, Alex Molcan and Jannik Sinner.
