Djokovic picks Federer for record ninth Wimbledon
● Novak Djokovic does not consider himself among the favourites at next month’s Wimbledon and shares the view that defending champion Roger Federer is likely to win a record ninth trophy at the All England Club.
The Serbian claimed his first victory over a top-10 opponent since last May at Queen’s Club on Thursday as he thrashed Grigor Dimitrov to reach the quarterfinals.
“I’m definitely not one of the favourites for Wimbledon,” Djokovic said.
“Roger is the clear favourite without a doubt. (Rafa) Nadal maybe hasn’t played well at Wimbledon by his standards, but he’s won it several times. He’s definitely one of the candidates to win the title.”
World No 2 Nadal, who last won the Wimbledon title in 2010, will enter the All England Club without any competitive matches on grass this year.
