But there are a number of players, who are strong contenders for this year's title with the likes of Stan Wawrinka, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic showing great form en route to the Roland Garros.
In the women's category, things are a bit different as it could be anyone's game for the player, who stands up and delivers the goods in the two week event, could walk away with the title.
But Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep have it in them to be tagged favourites for the 2015 title.
