Roland Garros 2016: Djokovic’s 12th slam

by Jonas Eriksson

Just as I and many with me had predicted – this was truly Novak Djokovic’s year in Paris (he’s not had a bad year outside Paris either). He beat Andy Murray in the French Open final with the scoreline of 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-4 and by doing that now holds all four Grand Slam titles at the same time. Astonishing.

Whether Djokovic is now on his way towards overtaking Roger Federer and his 17 grand slams remains to be seen, but I would be very surprised if he doesn’t beat Nadal at 14. Djokovic is utterly dominant in the game right now and it’s hard to see who is going to defeat him in Wimbledon (Federer has the best chance to me) or US Open (no idea).

Right now, Djokovic is simply in a class of his own so hats off to that. But I still believe it would be good for tennis if we could get a couple of guys soon who are ready to beat him. Because no matter how impressive it is – it can a little bit repetitive.

Closing my Grand Slam predictions for the French Open 2016, I’m must say I’m very happy with the outcome of managing to predict 96 out of 127 matches which gives me a percentage of 75,6 correct predictions for the tournament.
