Roger Federer's chances at Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic gives verdict

Novak Djokovic praised Roger Federer in press conference at Queen's. The Serbian player thinks the Swiss has high chances to win his ninth Wimbledon this year. 'It's hard to pick superlatives for him, because so many things have been said about him throughout the course of his career that he definitely deserves all the positives and all the compliments as a champion, on and off the court', Djokovic said about Federer.

'He still keeps on inspiring everyone, showing that age is just a number and he keeps on going and playing some amazing tennis, really. He is where he is because he deserves it, so coming into Wimbledon, it's his backyard, it's his court and it's where he loves to play.

So he will be the man to beat there. He will be the first favorite.' Serbia will face Switzerland on Friday in the World Cup. Federer is playing in Halle, Djokovic at Queen's. 'We won't be able to watch it together with the popcorn, but try to do that with Stan (Wawrinka), and, well, let the best team win (smiling)', said Novak, who is playing doubles with Wawrinka in the tournament.
