A Slam winner said Wimbledon ruler Novak Djokovic is not invincible in London

The Wimbledon tournament has officially had its start, in these hours men and women are taking to the court and we can therefore attend one of the most awaited events of the tennis season. The former women's tennis champion, winner of the Roland Garros 2010 Francesca Schiavone, talking during an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport and she gave her impressions on the tournament.

Novak Djokovic is the big favorite in the London tournament while among the women it's a three-way fight with defending champion Elena Rybakina who starts as favorite over world number one Iga Swiatek and Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka.

Regarding the possible winners, Francesca has clear ideas: "Novak Djokovic is the king, the great favorite of the tournament but he's not invincible, on the contrary, it's a moment and he can be ousted.

I think it will be a very balanced Wimbledon, even if I don't expect big surprises in the men's tournament. Favorite for the women title? I say Aryna Sabalenka, I think the Belarusian has the necessary game to create problems for her opponents.

She is a fast player and we all know it." Wimbledon is a historic tournament, a tournament where the Italians have rarely done well. With the 2021 final, Matteo Berrettini, for example, was the first Italian to reach the final in that of the London tournament: Francesca has clear ideas on this too and reveals who she expects something more from.

Schiavinte said about: "I like Jannik Sinner very much, in my opinion he can do very well this year. I hope Matteo can recover his best condition and be competitive again, but I say Jannik. Musetti managed to find the right balance, I hope it will do well".

The Wimbledon tournament has officially kicked off, today Novak Djokovic, Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Musetti will take the field but there is great anticipation for the debut of all the big names on the circuit. Finally on the Wimbledon tournament Francesca closes: "You never lose the charm of playing Wimbledon, that court is unique and the tennis player lives for these emotions. We are all born for this."
