Can Novak Djokovic bounce back from his heart-breaking French Open Finals loss to win Wimbledon?

Of course Novak Djokovic can bounce back from his French Open finals loss last month! There are only a couple of players I’d take over Djokovic at Wimbledon and these days Djokovic has plenty of reason to believe he can and will beat either Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer should he find himself up against either in this year’s tournament. In the case of Nadal, Djokovic has won four of the last five meetings and this clearly isn’t his Rafa’s favorite surface although the Spanish Bull did win Wimbly in 2008 and 2010.

As for Federer, despite all of his magnificence, he is still aging at 32-years-old and far closer to the end of his career than the beginning. While Djokovic may not win this year’s Wimbledon championship, there’s no real reason to think he can’t.

Can Roger Federer ‘surprise’ and win another Wimbledon title?

Federer may be 32-years-old, but he’s moving almost as well as he ever has in recent years. The all-time leader in career Wimbledon titles is 34-7 on the year and just won his seventh Gerry Webber Open this past weekend. More importantly, Federer is 6-3 against Top 10 players this year.

Can Rafael Nadal pull off the rare French Open-Wimbledon Double?

Of course Nadal can pull off this rare feat after having pulled it of twice in his career (2008, 2010). Nadal is 41-7 this year and has won four titles including his ninth career French Open. Still, with this not being Nadal’s best surface and Rafa taking some unexpected losses this season, I certainly wouldn’t say he’s the favorite.

Which newcomer can win Wimbledon?

  • Grigor Dimitrov 28/1 
  • Jerzy Janowicz 33/1 
  • Kei Nishikori 50/1
  • Milos Raonic 40/1

If you haven’t seen young Grigor Dimitrov, then you should know the 23-year-old Bulgarian is a virtual Federer clone that is improving quickly. His all-court game means he will have a shot.

World No. 9 Milos Raonic and World No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz have huge serves that should um…serve them well at Wimbledon while Kei Nishikori is an absolute bundle of energy that can clearly beat any player on the planet these days with his explosive groundstrokes.

Which veteran could win his first career major title?

  • Ernests Gulbis 50/1
  • Tomas Berdych 33/1
  • Stanislas Wawrinka 14/1
  • Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 33/1

Now, ranked 10th in the world, Latvian-born Ernests Gulbis looks like he’s primed to take his game to new heights after reaching the semifinals at Roland Garros. In the cases of Tomas Berdych and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, their big serves could help them contend deep into the tournament. Of course, each of these players’ mental fortitude is always questionable at best.

Australian Open winner and world No. 3 Stanislas Wawrinka could make a deep run but I think he’s likely to rest on his laurels a bit more – at least until the U.S. Open when he’ll be back on hard courts,

My 2014 Men’s Wimbledon Champion Pick is:

While I’d really love to see Roger Federer make one more run at a grand slam title, I just don’t see anyone beating what will surely be a determined Novak Djokovic. The addition of former superstar and six-time grand slam title winner Boris Becker to his coaching team hasn’t exact paid a whole lot of dividends as far as the former World No.1 winning either of the year’s first two majors, but I believe that will change with Djokovic taking home the hardware here.

The Serbian-born superstar is 30-4 on the year with three titles and should be fresher than all of the other elite contenders, having played in fewer tournaments (18) that every other player in the Top 100. Djokovic won Wimbledon during his magical 2011 season and is about due if you ask me, having not won a slam outside of the Australian Open since that time.
