Seven time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe made an interesting comparison between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, and who is the greatest player in tennis history between them. The former American player thinks that the Spaniard should win more Grand Slam titles on hard-courts or grass to enter tennis books even more: 'A few years ago, before he got injured several times, his stats were probably better than Roger's, such as the Davis Cup and Olympics record, and the head to head meetings as well.

Then when Nadal dropped, Roger is back to knock the door. If we look at the amount of Grand Slam semifinals reached, Roger is obviously the most consistent player. I don't think winning nine or ten times in Paris could make any big difference.

It would be different if he wins Wimbledon two times, or US Open another time, or if he won the Australian Open final this year. These wins would change people's perspective towards Nadal.' Both Rafael and Roger have chances to be at the top of the rankings again.

Would it be a bad news for tennis, considering their age (31 and almost 36)? 'They are two of the greatest players: it cannot be a bad news. They are winning more than everyone and it is surprising for me. I think they can help others to go deep and improve more.'
