>After successfully defending his Monte Carlo and Rome clay court titles, Rafael Nadal has been voted as the greatest player to step on to the courts of Roland Garros after winning the tournament 4 consecutive times. The poll was taken in L’ Equipe magazine.
Readers were given the opportunity to vote for any former French Open champions such as Roger Federer, Bjorn Borg, Jim Courier, Guga Kuerten and Sergi Bruguera.
Nadal was surprised by the honour, saying that his career should not be judged until it is over. “It is a big surprise for me. Sometimes it’s easier for people to say which is better because I am (playing) now… We will see when I’m finished my career. I don’t know now. It is very difficult to compare, but my feeling now is that Borg is better.”
