This will officially be one of the most iconic tournaments in the ongoing clay season which has given us some surprising and eye catching results we never expected we will get in this match. This makes the competition even tougher going forward.

With the amount of talented players and some legends still in the mix it is really tough to predict the winners of this grand slam tournament going forward. It will really be interesting to see who will be the favourites to win this tournament as well. There are some great players whi we will be talking about going into this list of potential winners in the French Open. This will really be the biggest discussion among many tennis fans going forward.

So, here are the top 5 favourites to win the upcoming French Open this season:

5. Stefanos Tsitsipas

This season the Greek God has now finally entered into the top 10 and has been in great form as well. Stefanos Tsitsipas has come into his best form in the clkay season where he has won the Monte Carlo Masters and was a runner up in the Barcelona Open. The last time the 25-year-old Greek made the finals of the French Open was in 2021, where he lost a hard fought game against Djokovic. With him being in great form he will certainly be one of the threats for the other players and will be looking for his first grand slam victory as well. There is a chance this could be the peak season for him which he needs.

4. Rafael Nadal

There would be people arguing that the King of Clay Rafael Nadal should be higher in the list, but seeing his form this season it looks tough to see him get over the competition this season. Nadal has not made it to a single playoff since his return in the Barcelona Open as well. However, there is still a chance for one last hurrah for El Nino before his retirement. He might not be in his peak mode, but we can not underestimate the legendary 22-time grand slam champion. This  will be the last French Open for Nadal and we all still believe he can give it his all to win his 15th Roland Garros title.

3. Jannik Sinner

Let us move on to one of the upcoming phenomenas in the game right now. Jannik Sinner has probably been the best player this season after winning his first grand slam this season along with some great ATP singles titles. There is no doubt that the current world number 2 will also be the favourite to win another grand slam this season. The Italian superstar will be one of the best players in the league and will look to win his second grand slam this season as well. Though it won't be an easy journey, he is defeinitely one of the big favourites to win the game.

2. Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic is the current king of the tennis world and we all know that he thrives on these major tournaments despite having a rare title less season so far. The world number 1 and 24 grand slam champion will still be one of the top contenders in the tournament. Djokovic will still prove to be one of the top contenders in the upcoming Roland Garros and will be looking to end his title less streak. The 36-year-old Serbian Superstar is still on top of the game and cannot be taken lightly just because he has had a rather quiet season so far. Novak will still look to dominate and still look for his 25th Grand slam title which will officially make him the player with the most grand slam wins for a player.

1. Carlos Alcaraz

If the people are thinking of a name who can be the next prodigy of El Nino it is Carlos Alcaraz. The 21-year-old Spaniard does have a great record on clay, but is still looking for his first Roland Garros title. This year might be the day he gets it. Alcaraz has still been in great form and is still one of the top ranked players in the game. This grand slam victory will really establish him as one of the new pioneers in the game after his idol. This could be the start of the dominance of the new King of Clay who will be looking to take the throne this season.
