Djokovic: Nadal the man to beat

World number one Novak Djokovic reckons Rafael Nadal is the clear favourite ahead of the French Open.

The Spaniard, already a seven-time winner at Roland Garros, has been in blistering form since his return from seven months out with a knee injury, winning six of the eight tournaments he's participated in.

One of his only two defeats came against Djokovic in the final of the Monte Carlo Masters, but the Serb, who has not had the greatest clay court season so far, does not consider himself the French Open favourite.

Djokovic needs only the French title to complete the career grand slam, but losses to Grigor Dimitrov in Madrid and Tomas Berdych in Rome have left him feeling less than supremely confident.

Still, he knows he is with a good shout.

"Over the years I've had some great results in Roland Garros," he told Sky Sports.

"I've played pretty well over the last few weeks. Maybe I didn't have the results I would have wanted but I still feel good about my chances.

"Nadal is obviously the main favourite, the defending champ and we all know how good he is on that surface. Then there's Federer and myself but anybody can win a grand slam."
