Wimbledon 2021: Your form guide for the men's singles

Will Novak hold aloft the men's singles trophy at Wimbledon for a sixth time?
Who's hands on the men's singles trophy in 2021?

Will the Serbian machine called Djokovic make history in SW19? Check out our form guide compiled by Andy Swales...

"Grass court expertise appears thin on the ground. The longer the defending champion remains in the tournament, the more difficult it will be to dislodge him. The likelihood of him losing in the early rounds may be greater than from the quarter-final stage onwards."

World No 1 Novak Djokovic will arrive at Wimbledon on the brink of making tennis history.

If the 34-year-old Serb secures a third straight success at SW19, he will join Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal as the winner of 20 Grand Slam men's singles titles.

The three greats of the modern game will jointly hold the record for most Grand Slam titles during a career. Next in the list comes Pete Sampras with 14.

As for Djokovic, he is probably in a stronger position now than at any time during his career, having triumphed in seven of the last 11 Slams.

He recently dethroned the 'King of Clay', Nadal, en route to claiming his second French Open title.

World No 1 clear favourite

He will also start his Wimbledon defence as the clear favourite to win the tournament for a sixth time.

Over the past decade, Djokovic has been the sport's leading male player, and the stats certainly bear this out.

Since July 1st, 2011, this is what the Grand Slam Roll of Honour looks like:
17: Djokovic
10: Nadal
4: Federer
3: Murray
3: Wawrinka
1: Cilic
1: Thiem

Djokovic's growing dominance has been aided by Nadal's decision to stay away from Wimbledon this year.

The 35-year-old Spaniard is clearly taking time out to assess his position in the wake of his four-set defeat to Djokovic at the semi-final stage in Paris.

He also said that he would side-step this summer's Olympic Games in Tokyo, as he ponders his immediate future.

Poor form for Federer

Meanwhile, the other member of the 'Big Three,' Federer, will take part in his final Grand Slam before turning 40 in early August.

Federer recently survived the first week at Roland Garros before opting to withdraw, probably knowing full well he was unlikely to win the tournament anyway.

It was certainly a wise decision, allowing him time to concentrate on Wimbledon, which is easily his best opportunity for winning another Slam.

In 2019, Federer was beaten in the Wimbledon final after holding two match points in the fifth and final set of his four-hour, 58-minute marathon contest against Djokovic.

In his pre-Wimbledon warm-up tournament at Halle in Germany, an event he has won 10 times, Federer was beaten in three sets by young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime who eventually lost at the semi-final stage.

So who's left to worry Djokovic these next couple of weeks?

Grass court expertise appears thin on the ground. The longer the defending champion remains in the tournament, the more difficult it will be to dislodge him.

The likelihood of him losing in the early rounds may be greater than from the quarter-final stage onwards.

His biggest threat could come from one of the big servers in the men's game, rather than anyone currently inside the top 10.

Americans John Isner, Reilly Opelka and Sam Querrey are threats. The latter shocked Djokovic at Wimbledon five years ago.

The same goes for the beaten Wimbledon finalist from 2017, Marin Cilic, who is unlikely to go all the way but would be a dangerous opponent for anyone at any stage of a grass court tournament.

The 32-year-old Croatian recently won the low-key grass court event in Stuttgart, his first ATP Tour title since Queen's Club in 2018.

And then there's the unpredictable Aussie Nick Kyrgios, who would be another nightmare opponent on this surface.

As for the current top-10, none has any real pedigree on grass. Two-time Grand Slam finalist Daniil Medvedev probably has a better chance than most, while the six-foot, five-inch Italian Matteo Berrettini is a serious challenger.

The 25-year-old Berrettini was an impressive winner at Queen's Club last week.

But it is certainly going to take a massive turnaround in form to get the better of Djokovic who currently stands supreme in men's tennis.
