Crowd will be on Roger Federer's side against Novak Djokovic - Henman

Speaking on BBC the former world No. 4 Tim Henman previewed the upcoming Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. The Brit believes that the Swiss will have to raise his level even after his amazing performance against Rafael Nadal.

"Federer's got to play even better but I think the crowd will have a really big part to play. We saw even against Bautista Agut, Djokovic gets a little bit frustrated. The crowd will be massively on Federer's side.

I think if Federer can get off to a good start, he has a chance. Djokovic is the favourite. I'm going to say Djokovic to win but I'll go five sets." On a column for The Independent, the tennis coach Nick Bollettieri wrote: "Before The Championships began I wrote here that Roger Federer was the player to beat in the men’s singles.

As the final approaches, I’m not so sure. I find it very hard to choose between the Fed and Novak Djokovic. It’s a match-up between the player most would consider to be the greatest of all time and the guy I would regard as the most complete player ever to pick up a tennis racket.

Djokovic just has no weaknesses. With any other player you can pinpoint a part of their game that might give you some hope as an opponent, but Djokovic simply does everything superbly. I think Federer will play a bit differently to the way he played against Nadal", concluded the American.
