Wimbledon (Men's)

As it is on the women's side at the All England Club, the pecking order for the men is also up for debate. Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic came into the year as the clear-cut top two on tour, but their results in the first half of the season don’t measure up to that distinction. Whether they can return to form will certainly be a major storyline—especially with Murray in London—but so much of the focus will be on Roger Federer.

Federer’s year has been nothing short of magical, most notably his storybook win in Australia. As the breaks went his way in Melbourne, a similar scenario may have to unfold for Federer to win his first Wimbledon title in five years. He’s playing as well as ever, but at nearly 36 he still must grapple with time, his old rivals and a host of younger contenders including Nick Krygios, Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov. I’m not just covering my bases—I legitimately wouldn’t count any of them out of the running.
