Nine-time French Open champion Rafa Nadal will no longer be regarded as an "immovable obstacle" at Roland Garros this year, according to twice former winner Jim Courier.While Courier believes the best-of-five-set format means Nadal remains formidable, he makes world No. 1 Novak Djokovic favorite followed by Japan's Kei Nishikori.The 28-year-old Spaniard also lost to Djokovic in Monte Carlo and has looked nowhere near the player who has lost only one match at Roland Garros in 10 years of domination.Djokovic, beaten in last year's final by Nadal, has been in electrifying form and after beating Roger Federer to win the Rome title Sunday looks to have a golden opportunity to complete his career Grand Slam.
