Calvert, the unparalleled analyst, has locked in three strong Nadal vs. Djokovic picks.
Djokovic will go to Paris in May for the French Open seeking to become the only man in the Open Era to win all four Majors twice and, with victory, would hold all four Majors at the same time for the second time in his career. "I am not new on this".

The aggressive game plan he had used all tournament failed him, and when he tried to use more net clearance and spin Djokovic had an answer for that too - step in and club the ball hard.
