'Novak Djokovic is the Wimbledon favorite over Roger Federer and Nadal'

Who is the favourite to win Wimbledon? Speaking to SDNA, the former world No. 8 Mark Philippoussis, who lost 2003 final to Roger Federer, said: "Probably I will say Novak Djokovic, in terms of mental and physical status he is very close to when he dominated.

The energy and confidence are back. I would give him a light advantage." On Stefanos Tsitsipas's recent losses, Philippoussis added: "I think he puts pressure on himself. It's natural to have those expectations.

And it's a privilege when people expect something from you. I think he handles the situation very well, he just had a bad day in Wimbledon. He could put a lot of pressure on himself during the match. It was just a little obstacle on his way.

He can learn a lot and do even bigger things." In an interview to SDNA, the former world No. 2 Tommy Haas commented on what makes Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic different and special than others. The German said: "Best players are focused, they play good points and they do not lose sets.

And they always reach the quarter-finals or semis, which is something amazing. They do not make you breathe, while other opponents may not mentally be focused all the time."
