Tennis - One day after Guy Forget came out and backed a higher seeding for Rafael Nadal at the French Open, former world no. 1 John McEnroe has also joined the chorus.

Speaking to Tennis.com, the American legend commented, "Let me put it to you this way: I guarantee you that none of those four guys, as great as they are, want to see him in the quarters. Quite honestly, I would seed him number one. I’d seed him number one, actually, because I think he deserves that. I think the other players deserve it.”

“Certainly, you can’t even possibly question if he should be [seeded] ahead of David Ferrer, as much as I respect him, or for that matter even Murray on clay. Djokovic is the only one, given his accomplishments on clay, that you could possibly make an argument deserves to be seeded ahead of [Nadal]...I don't know that they [the Roland Garros seeding committee] are willing to change the seedings at their event."

Nadal has won the French Open seven of the last eight times and is currently ranked no. 5 in the world which means he could face Djokovic as early as the quarter finals.

However, in modern tennis it is not enough to simply slice the ball back into play on every shot. You need a topspin backhand with which to put pressure on your opponent and win points quickly.
