In the past few weeks, there have been many discussions about where Rafa should be ranked at the French Open. My contention is that considering how hard it is to win a major, the defending champ in each major should be automatically ranked #1 for the next year's event regardless of the rankings. Sure, funny things could happen if someone gets injured for 9 months and does not play at all. But if majors are so hard to win, the previous winner should earn to defend it as the #1 seed.
What do you think? Why or why shouldn't this happen?
