French Open 2016 men's seed report
SI.com's Jon Wertheim breaks down the men's seeds at the French Open. Read on for the dark horses, top first-round matchups and predictions, and find the women's seed report here.
1 Novak Djokovic
The overarching tournament storyline: Will the dominant No. 1 win the one major that’s eluded him? Will he finally have Paris, completing the career Slam and elevating his GOAT credentials? Or will he meet disappointment again? We say the former. Though his campaign is still challenged by history and flecked with a few doubts, especially after Rome.
2 Andy Murray
While his coaching situation is uncertain, his level of play is not. Very solid May, including a takedown of Djokovic in the Rome final. Murray knows his way around the clay and is—in keeping with his seeding— the clear-cut No. 2. (Won’t play a top 100 foe till round three.)
