2021 French Open Men's and Women's Singles Picks

The 2021 French Open gets underway tomorrow, and although I have already gone in-depth into the Men's Draw, and previewed both draws on the new Serve and Volley with Jack & Joe podcast, I thought it was worth going on the record with my entire bracket. For my reasoning behind these picks, be sure to listen to the first two episodes of the podcast!
