Without a shadow of a doubt, Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. The Serbian’s consistency and ability to play at the top level for the entire year stands him tall above the rest of the tennis world and many actually believe he is already well on the way to eclipsing Roger Federer’s record total of 18 Grand Slam titles. The world number one already has 11 under his belt and a French Open victory at Roland Garros would see him edge ever closer to the legendary Swiss star’s tally.
The Canadian star Milos Raonic has withdrawn from the upcoming French Open after failing to recover from a foot injury.
Raonic, 24, who is number. 6 in world rankings underwent surgery a little over a week ago to repair Morton’s Neuroma suffered at the Madrid Open.
The former British number Laura Robson has confirmed that she will not be featuring at the upcoming French Open 2015 as she continues to recover from a long-standing wrist surgical treatment.
