Roger Federer will be very hard to beat in Wimbledon, says pundit

In an interview with Tennis 365, the expert Andrew Castle praised Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic's dominance. They have reached the Wimbledon semi-finals barely losing sets and they seem the favourites to lift the title on Sunday.

Castle said: “I wouldn’t say they are making the rest look silly, but they are putting themselves on a different level compared to everyone in the history of the game, there is no doubt about that at this stage.

It is almost difficult for me to commentate on these guys at times because you run out of things to say. This is analysing perfection in many ways. These guys achieved levels of excellence many years ago, but now they are in their 30s and they are continuing to take their games and our sport to new levels.

It is quite extraordinary. It’s difficult to find the words sometimes, so you have to sit back and let the tennis speak for itself. “Whatever is ahead for us, we can expect to see those three battling it out for the title this week.

We have guys like Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime coming through, but for now, we have these three incredible legends leading our sport and it is a privilege to watch them do what they do. Watching Federer’s win over Matteo Berrettini in the fourth round on Monday was just incredible.

That is well as I’ve seen him play in a long time. If he plays like that in the next three rounds, of course he is a contender for the title again, even at the age of 37. If Roger plays at his absolute best, he is very hard to beat on a grass court and if Rafa has the willpower and his fitness levels remain where they are, he is more than capable of winning here again."
