The tennis world descends on the City of Love in a sport where players aim to be loveless for the second major of the year, the French Open at Roland Garros. In tennis, love means nothing, and it's a score every player wants to avoid, no matter the cost.

Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams are no doubt the favorites. Serena has won 24 matches in a row, while Rafa's streak stands at 15 after he bounced back from his first loss in Monte Carlo after claiming the tournament a jaw-dropping eight years in a row.

But who can drop some jaws in Paris? Maria Sharapova is the defending women's champion, and over the past year, Victoria Azarenka has proven that she is perhaps the biggest threat to Serena's solid grip of power. Novak Djokovic has said it is his biggest goal of 2013 to win the French, while Roger Federer sits safely on the other side of the draw from his two biggest rivals.

We'll take a look at the top players' draws at Roland Garros while placing odds on how they'll perform and breaking down just what they'll have to do to win seven straight on the grueling, unforgiving red clay.
