With Wimbledon just around the corner and each member of the “Fab Four” having one a Grand Slam title the last 12 months, the third major of the season is as wide open as ever.
There are outside contenders like Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Tomas Berdych, but the focus and attention will again be on the Top 4.
Novak Djokovic: Has never truly excelled on the grass and last year suffered poor results at both Wimbledon and a month later at the Olympics. In his only appearance in the final he did win it all in 2011 during his incredible run. This season though he’s won just one title in the last three months.
Andy Murray: Missed the French Open for a back injury but should be 100% fit for England’s tennis season. Murray led Roger Federer last year in the final before falling apart, but got revenge on the Swiss on the very same court at the Olympics. The well-rested Scot should be a force on the grass and might even be the tournament favorite to win his first Wimbledon.
Roger Federer: The aging 31-year-old is still the defending champion. Though last year he needed a lot of help with his ailing back flaring up and Murray’s collapse. A good draw with plenty of roof closures will do him wonders and if he can get to the final weekend the magic could quickly return for the 7-time champ.
Rafael Nadal: He’s been the best player bar none this season and there’s no reason to doubt he’ll be around late into Wimbledon. Nadal isn’t playing a warm-up to let his knee recover from the clay, and that should help. He’s twice won Wimbledon and he surely wants to make up for last year’s shock second round defeat. If he doesn’t get knocked out early he could become the player to beat.
