Hi. In English you use the present simple after a few words such as: unless, if, provided, until, as soon as, before, after. But I know that if, can be used with will. But it's not a conditional sentence then. However I would like to give you 3 examples, so that you can help me resolve my problem.

1. We will see if you will win.
2. We will see if you win.
3. We will see if you can win.

Which example is correct?

In context, all three are possible.

All right. But which one sounds the most natural to you?

2 and 3 are natural. They don't mean the same thing.
