Djokovic The Best Bet At This Year's Wimbledon
Considering the way Novak Djokovic performed last year and his current year’s form, all eyes would be glued on him at this year’s Wimbledon which is just 36 days away. Djokovic from Serbia is the current World number one and would enter this year’s Wimbledon as the reigning champion.
Djokovic, who dethroned Rafael Nadal of Spain from the number one position began his year by winning the Australian Open. He defeated Nadal, who is currently ranked two in the world in the finals of the tournament and after that he could only win the Miami Open and lost two. Before the Wimbledon, Djokovic would be trying to claim his first French Open title something which the World number two Spaniard has made his forte for last few years and has his authority stamped all over the tournament.
But then while talking about Wimbledon, it is a total different story and even though he lost at the Monte Carlo to Nadal, the Serb would still hold an edge over Nadal as well as other players in the tournament.
Djokovic won 10 titles last year including the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open and all three finals were won against Rafael Nadal. He is the only sixth player in the open era of tennis to have won three Grand Slams in a year.
Djokovic finished with 70-6 record last year and won six finals against Rafael Nadal. Going by the current trend in the World tennis, Djokovic is the best bet at the Wimbledon this year and Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer have been his fiercest rivals and where does he stand against them.
Out of his three rivalries, the one with Nadal is the fiercest one. Both of them have met 31 times with Nadal enjoying an advantage of 17-14. But then that hardly comes into consideration as he is the first player to have beaten Nadal in three consecutive Grand Slam finals. Nadal enjoyed a better record on grass over Djokovic but he still lost in the last year’s Wimbledon. And also they have met in seven grand slam finals from January 2011 and January 2012 with the Serb winning all. So that fact would definitely play on Nadal’s mind and he would definitely be wary of that.
Former World number 1 Federer enjoys a 14-11 advantage over Djokovic but then would not bother him much as he has emerged successful over the former World number 1 in big ticket events. They never met on grass, the playing surface of Wimbledon and also going by their current form it does not look that Federer could pose much trouble to him.
And talking about world number 4, Andy Murray, he has a better track record over as he won on eight occasions while losing five. Murray has won most of his matches on the ATP Masters 1000, while at the grand slams he has been completely dominated by him with the last one being the Australian Open final in 2011.
