The French Open kicks off Sunday. And while Spain's Rafael Nadal usually owns the red clay, Serbia's Novak Djokovic has other plans this year, while Switzerland's Roger Federer is falling further off the map.

Meanwhile, the women's side is in the midst of a Lord of the Flies moment, with no one clearly dominating.
