Because what we are talking about here is a list of those players who at some point in their careers were strong favourites to win the French Open due to their strong clay court form at that time. As we all know Edberg, Sampras, Becker and even Mckenroe were never known as specialists of clay and never even considered as favourites to win at Roland Garros. Hence the ommission

duh? they wtf is federer mentioned as automatically qualifies in the list. He is no clay specialist either but we expect him to win. So was sampras. The author of this article started following tennis since last night. Damn him.

Edberg is not the best coz he refused to tour India during a davis cup tie at late 90's....he issued statement that his coach got ill eating food in India so he cannot tour.
Roger Federer is the modern day Borg. Cool, excellent temperment and can rip through any rivals, beit grass, artificial or clay. I pray he bags this one for his would be new born baby. After marriage it would be icing on his tennis career. I and so his million fans would like to se him hold on to the French Open. May all tennis students inherit this man qualities as a player on and off the court. I have not see Borg play but I can now picture what he was.
