Wimbledon 2016: Roger Federer Up For the Challenge In His Favorite Surface


For me, I'm just happy to see Roger healthy and fit again to play at yet another grand slam.

I know at 34, it's already tick tock tick tock time for him so it would be best to just enjoy each of the competitive matches he'll be playing, whether he wins the title or not. He's achieved so much anyway, already.

Even then, using the objective head-to-head, Roger is still the man to beat on his side of the draw. Thankfully, none of the other top four guys are on his side of the draw so he's the favorite to get the semi-final slot.

He has some potential quality competition though in Alexandr Dolgopolov, Gilles Simon and Kei Nishikori. If he gets through, Novak awaits in the semi's and Andy in the finals.

Wimbledon 2016: Novak Djokovic Still the Man to Beat


It's reset time for Novak Djokovic as Wimbledon starts on Monday. When he won the French Open title last month, he effectively held the four grand slam titles all at the same time.

However, he may be on the road again to another grand slam title here in Wimbledon as he's a heavy favorite in my book to get the semi-final slot in his side of the draw.

He has some tricky potential opponents like Sam Querrey, Phil Kohlschreiber, David Ferrer and Milos Raonic, but only Ferrer has ever won over him.

Roger Federer is a likely semi-final opponent and I won't be surprised if Andy Murray meets him again in the final.
