Roger, Rafa, Novak or Serena: whose is the most remarkable shot in history? | TENNIS.com

No matter where you look at it, history is on the horizon at this year's French Open. But what achievement in the terre battue would be the most impressive of all? Review these four legendary objectives and let us know your answer in the survey below.

1. Ten years after completing the Grand Slam race at Roland Garros, Roger Federer wins his second title at the French Open by 21st.

The 37-year-old is playing in his first French Open in four years, but until now he would not know about his game. Paris has been the only place where he has never been the favorite to win. It would just make the victory much sweeter.

2. Novak Djokovic wins his second French Open to reach 16 races and complete the "Novak Slam" for the second time.

World No. 1 won Madrid and reached the final in Rome before setting foot in Paris. The winner of the last three Grand Slam events, Djokovic has shown few signs of abandoning his first two games. A second Roland Garros title would make Djokovic the first man in the Open Era to have twice the four major races simultaneously.

3. Rafael Nadal wins his 12th French Open in 15 years, doubling the total of Bjorn Borg, achieving the 18th title of his career.

Although Djokovic has been excellent, Nadal is the player who delayed the Serbian a couple of weeks ago in Rome. Nadal is reaching the right point at the right time and improved to 89-2 at Roland Garros with his four-set victory over David Goffin on Friday.

4. Serena Williams wins her fourth Roland Garros title, and her first career as a mother, tying Margaret Court for all-time Grand Slam titles.

Serena has suffered many injuries this season, which limits her time on the court. With only four claycourt matches to her credit, the 37-year-old faced her fair share of skeptics, and was not the favorite of the betting creators to win. Williams does not have the easy road to victory, but he should never be counted on the Grand Slam stage, especially with a 24th title up for grabs.
