Nadal likely to be seeded 5. Interview with Gilbert Ysern, Roland Garros director, in L'Equipe today. Via @bluemathilde, he says:
"What we've thought for Rafa was to seed him #1, not #2, #3 or #4 because he's the best player in the history of the tournament ever. We thought it would be a great tribute to him, but many people discussed about it and it unfortunately became an awful mud. So we decided to keep the normal top seeds. To be really clear, I want to add that Rafa never, never asked for anything on this subject "
Seems like they'll have to rig the draw instead then, to avoid Djokovic, Federer and Nadal all in the same half! That would be the nightmare scenario - Ferrer and Murray in one half alone would be a travesty!
