As every Grand Slam Mats Wilander gave his predictions on who are the candidates to win the Roland Garros. The Eurosport commentator said he can't imagine another winner different than the nine-time champion Rafael Nadal in the men's singles draw.
'But if he didn’t win, my pick would be Stan Wawrinka. He hasn’t been playing great lately but he has won there before', Wilander told Metro.. About other players, the former Swedish player added: 'Dominic Thiem has a really good chance.
Obviously Novak Djokovic has to be one of the favourites. Andy Murray has maybe a chance but we don’t know where his game is at.' Asked who will win in the women's draw, he replied: 'It’s wide open.
Simona Halep won in Madrid, she’s playing pretty well, but she’s never won a grand slam and has a bad ankle. Angelique Kerber on clay courts, I’m not sure.' ALSO READ: Mats Wilander: 'The longer no Frenchman wins a Slam, the harder it gets
