Tennis: Former world number one Rafael Nadal’s coach and uncle Toni Nadal thinks that one of the best tennis players of all-time Roger Federer will not be among the favorite players at this year’s French Open.

Toni was giving an interview to Eurosport analyst Mats Wilander when he was asked if he considered his nephew to be the favorite at this year’s French Open.

The Spaniard replied Nadal would not be the sole favorite but he is among a group of favorites which also includes reigning world number one Novak Djokovic, London Olympics Gold Medalist and US Open champion Andy Murray, world number four David Ferrer and 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro. He was not sure if 17-time Grand Slam winner Federer is part of the group.

Toni said, “This year I think the favorites are Djokovic, Del Potro, David Ferrer, Rafael, Murray… I’m not sure about Federer… For me these are the favorites.”

Nadal has won seven of the last eight French Opens. Federer lost to the Spaniard in four of them. The only time when Nadal was stunned before the title match, Federer went on to win the crown and complete his career Grand Slam.

The Swiss Maestro was beaten by Djokovic in the semi-finals last year. He has not participated in any clay court event in this season so far. The 31-year-old is practicing on clay courts in Italy these days and will start this year’s clay court campaign at the Mutua Madrid Open in the first week of May.
