French Open Preview: Nadal Faces Big Challenges in 2014

While Rafael Nadals dominance on clay surface success begins to ease up, a hungry field of ATP competitors is ready and waiting to take his place on France’s throne. Though Rafa remains the tennis betting favorite with 5/4 odds of winning the French Open, he has had some vulnerabilities exploited in 2014 already.

Having most recently fallen to chief rival Novak Djokovic at the Italian Open earlier this month, Nadal will need to scramble if he intends on reestablishing himself as the overwhelming favorite whenever the conversation turns to clay. Hes looked effective on clay this season, sure, but hes also looking uncharacteristically mortal.


At the French Open hell face stiff competition from not only Djokovic, but also less heralded tennis betting options like Stanislas Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori and Grigor Dimitrov. Is the Big Four Era on the verge of collapse?


Could those relatively new names, or perhaps even Nadals fellow ATP veterans like Roger Federer, Andy Murray or countryman David Ferrer spoil his bid for a ninth win at Roland Garros in the 10 seasons?


Its time to find out.
