Roger Federer won't play any clay-court event before Roland Garros, but according to the Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, who is living the best season of his life (he is No. 7 in the ATP Race to London), the Swiss player can do some damage.
That's what Carreno said according to Livetennis.it after the ATP 250 Estoril title won over Gilles Muller: 'Seeing results in 2017, I would say Roger Federer is the favourite to win (in Paris) even if he doesn't play any tournament before it.
We should have a look also at Rafael Nadal, who can do some damage too.' Carreno Busta who lost to Novak Djokovic in Monte Carlo last month in three sets. Asked by Marca if he saw a different Djokovic than usual, he replied: 'It's clear that Djokovic is not playing as well as he did in the last years, before he was unstoppable.
Only three players could compete against him. But although they he is a very High level player, it is not easy to keep up that way and players are more and more willing to win.' ALSO READ: Nick Bollettieri: 'If there were more people like Roger Federer, the world would be better' .
