Roger Federer -Although he seems to be on the wane, he is still a joy to watch -with his one handed backhand being one of the most beautiful shots in the game. This won't be easy for hm though, he will have to beat Djokovic in the semi-final and probably Nadal in the final if he is to win only his second French Open title.

Rafa Nadal -2010 saw him take revenge on Robin Soderling and win his fifth title in six years. This year hasn't quite gone to plan -mainly due to the amazing form of rival Djokovic (including losses to the Serbian in finals in both Madrid and Rome on clay). He will be more pumped up than ever before -because he treats this title as his own personal property!

Novak Djokovic -This is turning out the be one of the most amazing runs in sport, not just tennis. Can he surpass John McEnroe's 1984 record of 42-0 or will he fall short of the great man's mark? Already this season he has beaten Nadal twice on clay (in the finals at Madrid and Rome), if he managed to do it for a third time here in Paris then he would be a worthy world number one.

Andy Murray -The courts are playing 'faster' at Roland Garros than ever before, so this should suit the Scot, but as ever, he may end up beating himself (like he did against Berdych last year). He will take heart from seeing his peer Djokovic kick on to the next level and will hope that he has room in his locker to take the step up too. But it may not be here on the clay -maybe in a few weeks time at Wimbledon.

If you are betting on a match then it is imperative to follow it closely -especially if you are playing on the points sumpremacy or total points in the match. These are very volatile and can change massively on a single break point -because this may mean the difference of the players playing an extra set (between 50-70 points).

The best way to follow the action if you haven't got access to a tv is with a live score website, the best of these is www.tennis.com/livescores/index.aspx

The whole tennis.com site is excellent and has lots of background information on players and previous head to head results -essential for analysing a match.
