John McEnroe on Olympics troubles, Madrid's blue clay, praises Federer & Djokovic

John McEnroe held a conference call on Monday to discuss his World TeamTennis matchup against Andre Agassi in July and voiced his opinion on several hot topics in men’s tennis.

McEnroe remarked on the upcoming summer Olympics and the troubles surrounding it in tennis, Madrid's "pretty crappy" blue clay, the current level of men's tennis, and an outlook and review of the top three ATP Tour players Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

He gives great praise to Federer calling him the "greatest, most beautiful player that ever lived," Djokovic's current game unbelievable, and stated that Nadal could easily solidify himself as the best clay court player ever if he wins Roland Garros this year. Is this fair assessment for the Top 3?

Pretty cool interview he gave!

Nobody cares what MugEnroe thinks.

Nadal has solidified himself as clay GOAT long ago.

I'll take words of a quiet-spoken legend like Borg over a boisterous jester. MugEnroe still bitter about that RG final, it seems

I'm gonna teach you the truth, Doc, nobody cares what YOU think, and most of the people who know about tennis cares about McEnroe.

That's why he's making interviews, because people care.
And that's why you're writing in a tennis board, because you NEED to share your crappy trolling things about tennis.

McEnroe = good
TSD = bad

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!

You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.

I mean all of what he said is true but it's sort of common since, it's a shame he didn't say anything particularly interesting or controversial.

Federer plays the most beautiful of any player ever? duh check we all knew that. Djokovic's form the last year very very solid? check no one, even Topspindoctor, missed that. Nadal best clay court player? already.

John have fun at press conferences like you used to!

it is good he bashed the blue clay though, i'm not sure about everyone else, but i feel so much more comfortable being back to the orange/red, just feels right and the mood is lighter- both literally and figuratively

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

the worthless toad lost all credibility with that remark, too many PEDs injected in his ass

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

You all (with exceptions) sound like you can outplay McEnroe on the court. But what I know of the game, it takes a lot more than sheer ability and determination to succeed. Maybe that's why we're here spewing crap on the Web, and McEnroe, Federer, et al. are living the life we all can only dream of.

Additionally, McEnroe ranked Federer and Nadal as the third and fourth best hard court players, behind Pete Sampras and Rod Laver.
I highly disagree with this part of the article, especially since Novak has twice as many hard court slams than Rafa, and has been to more hard court slam finals. I'm not saying Novak deserves to be the fourth best hard court player (though I'm sure he will get there eventually if he continues with his form), but Rafa definitely isn't the 4th best HC player ever.

Fan of: Djokovic, Berdych, Fish
Also love: Nadal, Murray, Ferrer, Hewitt, Isner, Soderling, Raonic, Del Potro, Harrison, Paire
Retired: Courier, Ivanisevic, Gaudio
