The Swedish player had the most unexpected breakthrough when he was just 17 years old, winning his first French Open Grand Slam title. He has won 7 major titles during the 80s. Now he is sure that Novak Djokovic will go on to win more of these titles. 

For me Djokovic is the big favorite. And the reason why I think he’s the big favorite is that I haven’t yet seen anyone who is as solid as Novak from the baseline and who serves as well as Novak. So, over the years, his service has improved time after time,” explains Mat Wilander. 

No one serves like him.

The former world number 1 believes that Nole is stronger on grass because he is comfortable on the surface. The complexity of the surface is factor that makes the new gen players uncomfortable on this class grass surface. So, given Novak’s strong serve, returns and comfort on the classic grass surface makes him the toughest player this Wimbledon season.
