Since 2002 only four players have won the Wimbledon title. Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and of course Andy Murray who sadly isn’t in the singles this year.
All three will be hoping to add to their collection but who has the most realistic chance?
Last year Novak played at Queens coming into Wimbledon as he desperately needed some momentum following a tough first 5 months of the season.
This season has been much better. His Roland Garros ended in a semi-final defeat to Dominic Thiem but the world number one will not be heading to Queens to defend his run to the final which is a slight surprise and will head to Wimbledon without a grass court tournament under his belt.
He has sometimes turned up at Queens but Rafa will also head to Wimbledon without a grass court warm-up.
Rafa has been a champion twice at Wimbledon but not since 2010.
What he did on the clay in Paris was sublime but going from clay to grass is a complete change up. It depends on how Rafa is physically after a tough and tense clay court season.
I’m interested to see how he does but I’m not expecting too much in challenging here.
Seven time champion, he has a chance.
I think the clay was a good run for him but now it’s a focus on grass. The only one of the three players playing a warm-up.
Roger as ever heads to Halle where he is a nine time champion in Germany but when looking for number ten last year slipped up to Borna Coric.
Quick surface and quick service games I think Roger does go into her as the main favourite alongside Djokovic and it will be interesting to see how he settles following his quarter final defeat last season.
Who do I think will win?
Andy Murray who is the only other player to have won Wimbledon since 2003 says he expects it to be one of the three.
I can’t see Rafa winning Wimbledon unless a shock exit for Roger and Novak and I can’t see the Spaniard beating either on the grass.
Roger and Novak are obvious favourites right now, I do think Roger will settle quicker but when it gets to the business end usually Novak is the man to beat.
