Djokovic has been unstoppable this year and he is fully deserving of all the plaudits he is receiving, having won every one of the 37 matches he has played in 2011, claiming seven titles, including the Australian Open. During that run the Serb has not only broken Rafael Nadal's 39 match winning streak but emphatically out-classed the world number in the final of each of the last four Masters events.

Likewise, Djokovic has now won his last three matches against world number three Roger Federer and his dominance over his rivals is becoming almost frightening. Andy Murray briefly threatened to end Nole's winning streak but the Serb was just too strong for the Brit and he has now beaten the number four seed in their last two matches. No-one can forget the way he disposed of Murray in straight sets in Melbourne and clay courts are not the Scot's strongest surface.

With Djokovic holding the Indian sign over the world's top players, it could well be left to one of the ATP Tour's 'lesser lights' to end his unbeaten streak. Fate has, however, been kind to Nole. The main challenger in his section of the draw is Juan Martin Del Potro and the Argentine, who is slowly returning to the form that saw him win the 2009 US Open, is carrying an injury that has jeopardised his chance of even reaching the third round, where he is scheduled to face the number two seed.

Richard Gasquet may have beaten Roger Federer in Rome but he was no match for Djokovic, who beat the Frenchman 6-2, 6-4 in the Eternal City. Gasquet is also infamous for failing to perform at Roland Garros and even a partisan crowd won't be enough to see him reverse this month's result.

Tomas Berdych is seeded to meet Djokovic in the quarter finals of the French Open but such has been the Czech's lack of form this year that he is unlikely to even reach the last eight in Paris. Of the rest of the quarter, only Marin Cilic, Mikhail Youzhny and Albert Montanes are capable of going deep in a Grand Slam and, like Berdych, all three are having poor seasons.

That means that the only player who can prevent Novak Djokovic from winning the 2011 French Open is Novak Djokovic himself and anyone who has seen the Serb in action this year will know that will not happen. The pressures of his unbeaten run are immense but time and again the 23-year-old rises to the challenge. His much publicised 'gluten free' diet seems to have improved his fitness immeasurably and he no longer looks vulnerable to playing in either intense heat or in long matches. Not only that, but Djokovic now looks far more comfortable with his celebrity status and admits to enjoying himself far more than he has ever done before, both on and off court. This coupled with the confidence gained from his unbeaten run this year, make him impossible to oppose at Roland Garros.
