Re: McEnroe: Nadal should be top seed at French Open

I am sure RG won´t change seedings, so Rafa will be 5th, but i would like if they do it, because with Rafa and Nole as top 2 seeded players, there is huge chance for their RG F- which i hope will be, no matter what some people say, those 2 are by far 2 best on clay and Nole is only player who can beat Rafa at RG. Rafa won´t loose to anyone else and Nole can loose, but most likely should make F if he won´t have Rafa in QF or SF- Federer won´t pull another Serverer 2011 mode, Ferrer and Murray can exhaust him for next match but no way they beat him, guys like Delpo,Tsonga,Berdych can test him, but in the end his movement and deffense will be to much and he will win. So from this point of view it would be good to see Rafa as No.1 seeded, i mean if Nole won´t make F o.k. his fault, but he should make F, he is just clearly better on clay at best of 5 format than anybody besides Rafa, last year it was weird with him having troubles with Tsonga on clay and even that Seppi match was way to close for someone like Nole

So ATP 250 titles and finals are more valuable than RG SF and QF and Masters SF's....

Toni Nadal, the uncle and coach of Rafael Nadal, tells El Periodico de Aragon that if Roland Garros decides to raise the seven-time French Open champion's seeding he wouldn’t mind. Nadal is currently ranked No. 5, just behind David Ferrer.

"If they choose to do it, [it] will be good for Rafa and it doesn’t not seem bad to me," Toni Nadal said.

Hall of Famer John McEnroe told he believes Nadal should be the top seed for the French Open. Both Toni and Rafael Nadal have advocated a two-year ranking system, partly to protect the rankings and seeding of top level players who become injured.

"Rafa has won seven titles in Paris and he lost his ranking because he has spent seven months off the courts,” Toni Nadal said. “This would not happen if the rankings were made up of the results over two years. It’s not logical that [Juan Martin] del Potro was injured for one year and fell to No. 700 and had to start again. That is not good for tennis or for the show."
