Tsitsipas on Cusp of Stardom?
Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks might be the Greek superstar athlete getting most of the pub of late. Tsitsipas, though, is close to making a racquet himself.
He's 13-4 on clay courts this year, with a tournament win at Estoril, Portugal. Tsitsipas has posted victories this season on a clay surface over Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. He has a win over Fognini and losses to Nadal, Djokovic and Medvedev.
Currently no. 6 in the world, Tsitsipas shows flashes of greatness. But he's not ready to win a Grand Slam just yet.
Fognini's Brief Flash
With his win at Monte Carlo, which included a semifinal triumph over Nadal and a Round of 16 victory against Alexander Zverev, Italy's Fognini gave us a glimpse into what he's capable of on clay.
Beyond that tournament, it's been a forgettable clay-court campaign for the Italian in 2019. He exited in the first round at four successive tournaments prior to his winning run in Monte Carlo.
In two tournaments since, the world no. 11 has gone out in the round of 16, including a loss to Tsitsipas in the Italian Open.
Daniil Was Dandy in Barcelona
Russian player Medvedev is currently ranked 14th in ATP men's singles. He made an impressive showing on the clay in Barcelona, achieving a final appearance before falling to Dominic Thiem.
But his only win of note was a semifinal victory over world no. 6 Kei Nishikori. Medvedev's other three victories came against players ranked outside the top 60.
Inconsistency is Medvedev's trademark. He beat Tsitsipas and Djokovic to reach the Monte Carlo semifinals. Then he fell in straight sets to world no. 48 Dusan Lajovic.
Stan's Not the Man
Wawrinka is the one member of this prop wager group with a resume of success at Roland-Garros. It's a long ago bit of work, however.
He beat Djokovic 4–6, 6–4, 6–3, 6–4 to win the 2015 French Open men's singles title. That victory brought a halt to Nadal's five-year winning streak at Roland-Garros. Wawrinka met Nadal in the 2017 French Open final but this time, didn't fare so well. Nadal ousted him in straight sets.
The last two years have not been kind to Wawrinka. The 34-year-old Swiss player has been bothered by injury. He's 15-10 overall this season and 4-3 on clay. He's dropped to no. 27 in the world rankings.
Garin on the Move
Just 22, Chile's Cristian Garin has served notice this year that he could be a force to be reckoned with. He jumped from 84th in the world as high as no. 33. He's currently ranked 37th.
He's won two tournament titles this year, both on clay. That includes a victories in the US Clay Court Championships in Houston and Munich's BMW Open.
Garin was the first Chilean to win a clay-court title on American soil since 2000. He owns a 19-5 record on clay this year, but hasn't faced any of the world's top players on the surface.
Don't Be Tempted by the Price
Grabbing five players and gaining odds of +1200 sounds great. But it's not.
The only one who's won the French Open is Wawrinka and his best days are behind him. The other four are on the cusp of making some noise on the ATP Tour. They aren't ready to win big, however.
Does another title in Rome secure @RafaelNadal's favourite status heading into #RG19?

Historically, the French Open is not a tournament where surprise stories unfold. You have to go all the way back to American Michael Chang in 1989 to find a really romantic tale.
Stick with the favorites. Nadal is going to win here. And if he doesn't, it will be Djokovic.
