Who will be Roger Federer's strongest opponent at Wimbledon? The Swiss player answered this question during a conference call in Stuttgart. He thinks that it will be Rafael Nadal! 'He’ll be in great shape for Wimbledon', the 36-year-old said about the Spaniard.
'Otherwise I haven’t thought too much about who could be favorite. Rafa’s won Wimbledon twice, so he’s no one-trick pony. He’s become better from year to year. He’s playing more aggressive and better on fast surfaces.
He’s not only the king of clay, he can play well everywhere. Then you also have (Marin) Cilic, (Juan Martin) Del Potro and, I hope, Novak (Djokovic) will come back strong. He has already shown good tennis this year. I also hope that (Andy) Murray and Stan (Wawrinka) will come back.
And I’ve probably forgotten one or two players now…' What about Alexander Zverev? 'I think he will have a good year. He’s learned a lot from his five set matches in Paris. He’s already played great in Miami.
He’s also shown how great he can play on grass. His service and his return open up all possibilities for him.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer can be world No. 1 again this week - Here is how
