"It (winning Roland Garros) might be tougher for him than winning the Australian Open or Wimbledon, but I'm sure he can do anything if he tries 100 per cent", said Nishikori. Federer is due for a return to the dirt after two seasons completely off the surface in three weeks at Madrid, his lone scheduled tune-up prior to the French Open, which he last played in 2015.

Djokovic also believes in the power of Federer as the 37-year-old steps back onto the clay.

Nadal, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, attended Woods' Hero World Challenge event in the Bahamas in 2017, while the golfing great has watched Nadal play at the US Open on multiple occasions.

Defensively, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing four goals per game and are killing 50 percent of their opponents power plays. The 19-year-old scored twice, powering past John Carlson on one and firing in an Ovie-like one-timer on the other.

"I think Rafa is always a very clear favorite on any clay court in the world, and it doesn't change", Djokovic said. "Personally I think most of the people understood why he made a decision to skip the clay court season a year ago, and I also understand why he wants to play". "Zverev has done really well on clay the past few years". But I think, personally, people understood why he decided as well to skip the clay-court season previous year and I also understand why he wants to play. He's still my idol, he's the best player in history. "I started to know a bit more what I had to do". Certainly I was disappointed because I thought I was playing better and better and I thought I could go far.

"It's been hard for me personally", Nadal said of his latest physical setback. Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami, he's won two out of three, played the final in Indian Wells, [which is] as good as it gets. - Rafael Nadal won 46 straight matches in Monte-Carlo from 2005-13, but Djokovic brought that streak to an end in the 2013 final, putting on a clinical display to defeat the Spaniard in straight sets and lift his first title at the Masters 1000 tournament. He's won all the big ones. Djokovic's opponent is Taro Daniel of Japan or Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber, who has lost eight of 10 matches against Djokovic but beat him at Indian Wells.

This week the Serb, Novak Djokovic is playing the Monte-Carlo Masters 2019 and in the doubles court he will be teaming up with his compatriot, Marko Djokovic. In that tournament the German single hander Kohlschreiber beat Djokovic in 2 straight sets 6-4, 6-4 to score his second career win against the legendary Serbian.
