In an interview to Express, the former world No. 4 Greg Rusedski praised Roger Federer ahead of Wimbledon. Despite the Swiss will turn 38 in July, Rusedski sees Federer triumphing at the All England Club. “I think a certain guy by the name of Roger Federer, who a lot of people have heard of.
He impressed me at the French Open and all this year. It is coming from the Big Three. I think Federer, Rafa [Nadal]- Novak I’m a little concerned about. The defending champion didn’t play a tournament. He played a few exhibition matches and then will play the Wimbledon Championships", said Rusedski.
"I see the winner coming from Roger, Rafa or Novak. I am not sure Tsitsipas or Auger-Aliassime are quite ready against those three. Ask me the question next year and it might be a different answer”. Analyzing the women's draw, the former world No.
5 Daniela Hantuchova said: "I think generally speaking you can’t ever predict anything that is going to happen in a women’s life in general. That’s wide open but I absolutely love the way Ashleigh Barty played in the French Open.
I played against her on grass so I know how well she can play and she can be very dangerous. If she can keep calm and confident as she was in Paris then she has a great chance to go all the way once again”. We will see how far Serena Williams goes in the tournament. The American will play against the Italian qualifier Giulia Gatto Monticone.
