"He owes it to the game to go over there and try" - Patrick McEnroe on Nadal playing Wimbledon

Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal's quest for a Calendar Grand Slam continues as the Spaniard gears up for Wimbledon later this month and Patrick McEnroe loves to see it.

Former professional tennis player Patrick McEnroe spoke about the possibility of Nadal playing in the third Major of the year on his podcast 'Holding Court with Patrick McEnroe.' McEnroe believes that the Spaniard owes it to the sport and the tournament to take to the court this year.

He said:

"Rafael Nadal has said that he will play at Wimbledon, he's won the first two Majors of the year. So he better play, he's got to get over there and play, he owes it to the game, he owes it to the tour, he owes it to Wimbledon to go over there and give it a shot."

McEnroe also believes that the unique situation in the sport of tennis prompted Nadal to this decision as he thinks that generally, he would have probably skipped the event. Federer is not playing, Djokovic is vulnerable and several key players are also missing.
