Mario Ancic high on Novak Djokovic's chances of defending Wimbledon title

Former world No. 7 Mario Ancic thinks world No. 1 Novak Djokovic is the top favorite to win it all at The All England Club this year. Djokovic, seeded at No. 1, has been showing great tennis so far at Wimbledon as he has dropped only one set on his way to reaching the Wimbledon quarterfinal.

The Serb's 2019 Wimbledon campaign features straight-set defeats over Philipp Kohlschreiber, Denis Kudla and Ugo Humbert, as well as a four-set win over rising Polish star Hubert Hurkacz. Defending Wimbledon champion Djokovic will fight against 2017 Nitto ATP Finals runner-up David Goffin for a place in the semifinal.

"I have been closely following the tournament so far and it seems to me that Novak is in a great form -- he is locked in and ready. When the situation is like that, he is the top favorite," former three-time ATP champion Ancic exclusively told Sport Klub.

When asked for how long he expects Djokovic to play, Ancic opinioned the world No. 1 could be around for a long time as he doesn't see why the Serb couldn't do the same as Roger Federer.
