Top-seeded Novak Djokovic has had his moments in Monte-Carlo and Rome Masters – but he just could not reignite his magic on red-soil against Nadal, like he did in the last season. But, now at the 2012 French Open, the stakes will be all time high and we know, Djokovic is a man of the moment – who has the potential to pull it off and to become only the eighth man in the history of tennis – to complete a career slam. Well, the draw is here and Djokovic will start off his campaign against the Italian Potito Starace. Interestingly, Rod Laver was the last player to have held all four Grand Slam titles at the same time in 1969.
The World No. 1 Serbian has a stellar 25-7 win-loss record at Roland Garros with semi-final appearances in 2007, 2009 and 2011. Last season, when Djokovic was looking way ahead of his opponents, he was stopped by Swiss Maestro Roger Federer, who snapped his 41 match winning streak but failed to get past Rafael Nadal in the final. As the draw suggests, Djokovic might meet fourteenth seed Fernando Verdasco in the Last sixteen and fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or World No. 11 seed Gilles Simon in the quarter-finals.
On the other hand, defending champion Rafael Nadal, who is gunning to break Bjorn Borg’s record by winning seven French Open titles, will start off his campaign against Italian Simone Bolelli in the first round. The King of clay has an awe-inspiring 45-1 record at Roland Garros. In the last sixteen, Nadal could face off thirteen-seeded Juan Monaco or nineteenth-seeded Milos Raonic. He might face eighth seed Janko Tipsarevic or No. 12 seed Nicolas Almagro in the quarter-final.
2009 French Open winner Roger Federer will take on Germany's Tobias Kamke in the first round. Federer has an impressive 49-12 lifetime record at Roland Garros. Federer could face former World No. 1 Andy Roddick in the third round and No. 15 seed Feliciano Lopez in the Last sixteen. In the quarterfinals, Federer might meet No. 7 seed Tomas Berdych or Juan Martin del Potro.
On the other hand, top Scot Andy Murray has been featured in the same part of the draw as Nadal. He will start off his campaign against Japan's Tatsuma Ito. Murray could meet Bernard Tomic in the third round and Richard Gasquet or Alexandr Dolgopolov in the last sixteen. Another defiant Spaniard and sixth seed David Ferrer will take on Lukas Lacko in the first round.
As far as prize money is concerned, then the winner of men's singles championship will get €1,250,000 and the runner-up €625,000.
