Stan Wawrinka will defend his French Open title against a depleted field, one no longer featuring Roger Federer and Gael Monfils. Yet, there are still plenty of potential winners at Roland Garros, in the form of Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Serena Williams is expected to again dominate in the Women's event, but the 34-year-old 2015 winner has been handed a very tough path to the final.

Preview

Wawrinka was drawn in the same half as Murray, but it's the Scot who has seen his chances boosted. Ben Rothenberg of the New York Times stated how challenging paths for both Djokovic and Nadal have helped this year's Italian Open winner:

When it comes to Murray's own draw, Eurosport's Desmond Kane thinks it's the potential semi-final against Wawrinka that could prove trickiest: "Wawrinka certainly knows how to handle Murray. and has won their past three matches including a 6-1 6-2 romp in the last 16 at Monte Carlo two years ago."

Of course, every player in the men's draw can feel more confident after Federer withdrew due to a back injury that had troubled him at the Madrid Open, per BBC Sport. Monfils soon followed suit when a viral infection laid the Frenchman low, according to an AP report (h/t ESPN.co.uk).

Williams' path looks set to end with a final against world No. 2 Agnieska Radwanska. Yet, despite the Pole's high ranking and inconsistency, this may not be such a tough test for 2015 winner Williams.

Specifically, Toby Keel of Eurosport has noted how conditions at Rolando Garros might not favour the 27-year-old: "Radwanska was a junior French Open champion back in 2006, but has only won two tournaments on the sport's slowest surface (neither of them at big events) and admits that she finds it 'hard to move' and 'slippery'."

Keel doesn't think Radwanska will make it past the quarter-final. It's not so bold a prediction considering she's won only two of her 18 titles on clay, per Paul Newman of the Independent. Based on this record, Williams is unlikely to be wary if she's facing Radwanska on the red clay come the final.

There are still enough great players to create genuine suspense in the men's event. Wawrinka is strong at this event, but the Djokovic, Murray and Nadal trio could easily contain a new winner.

Things are going to be more predictable in the women's event, where Williams will continue to hold sway.
