[Best Syndication News] The French Open got off to a wet raining start, with some games being postponed.

The favorite picks for this year is Roger Federer for the men’s likely winner because he was winner of the Estoril and was also a runner-up in the Monte Carlo Nadal competitions. He has only won one tournament out of 8 for this year.

The pick for the women is tougher to pick because the favorite, Justine Henin is not participating. She quit just short of participating in The French Open. Only 25 years old, Henin is retiring from the sport. Henin has won the French Open four times. She said that the sport has consumed her life ever since she was a child.

The women’s pick may be Jelena Jankovic with a win at the Italian Open last week. Maria Sharapova made the semifinals in Paris last year for the first time. Another possible candidate is Ana Ivanovic who was the runner-up to Henin in last year’s tournament.

Sharapova had a tough time winning her first round against 103rd ranked contender Evgeniya Rodina.

Rafael Nadal has advanced in straight sets. Nadal’s match against Bellucci was postponed and completed today.
