Wimbledon is Roger Federer's best chance but Novak Djokovic is the man to beat: Boris Becker
Djokovic currently holds all four majors and if he wins a third successive Wimbledon title and fourth in all, he will become just the second man in history to win five successive Slams.
New Delhi: Former Wimbledon champion and coach of World No.1 tennis player, Boris Becker, is of the opinion that Wimbledon is the best chance for Roger Federer to add another Grand Slam trophy to his cabinet.
In a column for Gameplan published in The Times of India, Becker wrote, "I do feel that Federer might just have one more Grand Slam, particularly Wimbledon, in him but the Novak-Murray duo is the one to watch out for. However, the man to beat is Novak and he is working at his defence campaign one game at a time. There is no talk of a Grand Slam at all -that can only come into the reckoning if he makes it to the second week at the US Open. Only a naive player will think about it so far ahead."
Becker also hailed Djokovic and Andy Murray as two of the best returners of serves in modern-day tennis.
"Novak and Andy Murray possess the best returns in the game today and perhaps that is why they tend to do well in Grand Slams in general and Wimbledon more specifically . Novak has also worked really hard on his serves over the years, and his slice serve has been a valuable weapon on grass," he said.
Djokovic completed a career slam recently by defeating Andy Murray to clinch his maiden French Open title.
The 29-year-old defending champion currently holds all four majors and if he wins a third successive Wimbledon title and fourth in all, he will become just the second man in history to win five successive Slams.
