Roger Federer is like Superman, he can do anything - John McEnroe

The former world No. 1 John McEnroe believes Roger Federer can still win a Grand Slam title despite losing an epic Wimbledon final to Novak Djokovic. The seven-time Major winner said: "Five years ago, I thought he would never win again and look at what happened.

Despite his age, he is like a kind of Superman, who is able to do anything." Who will end up holding the most number of Major titles? "Maybe Djokovic. First, because he is younger than Nadal and second because he is able to win on more surfaces.

Rafa had a lot of issues with injuries on hard court and Nole seems unlikely to have them. Then it depends on the motivation he has." Who are the favorites looking ahead at the US Open? "On the men's side it's not that I do not want to say Djokovic, but he is difficult to deal with for opponents.

On the women's, everything is very open. I take Serena, as much as she wants to win again. It depends on how her body answers because she had issues. American players like Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens have a lot to say."

Why can't the younger players prevail over the older ones? "Each player has his things. Someone got injured, someone could not deal with pressure, some others broke through too early... The truth is that the Big Three are at such a high level that they are too confident," said McEnroe, who will be part of the Eurosport team.
