French Open 2012: Ranking Top 10 Players to Never Win French Open

For tennis enthusiasts looking at the photo of Roger Federer, you're probably thinking I either misread the title for this slideshow, or I'm not from this planet. How could Federer possibly be a part of this slideshow? Well, he is, and he isn't. Let me explain.

The French Open, the pivotal tournament of the clay-court season and the second Grand Slam of the year is a tournament that serves as one of the toughest challenges for tennis players. This surface rigorously tests the mental and physical strength of all who set out to conquer it.

That's why I used a photo of Roger Federer. As we all know there's no doubt, that Federer will go down in history as one of the best players of all time. But, even for a grand tennis champion at the top of his game, the clay does not give any leniency. Up to this point in his career, Federer has only won the French Open one time. He won in 2009.

This is the theme that was so overwhelming as I conducted research for this project. The French Open is indeed the Mt. Everest of the tennis world.

Here, we will take a look at the top 10 players who have never graced the awards ceremony to receive the top prize at Roland Garros. We will look at the top five men and top five women.

Please feel free to share your thoughts and comments. I'm sure there will be some players that you feel deserve to be on this list, so please feel free to share them as well.

Let's begin...
