Former American star Andy Roddick has backed Novak Djokovic to win another Wimbledon. Roddick believes the Serbian has not received enough praise for his success at the tournament. Roddick analysed how Djokovic’s performances at Wimbledon have been underestimated.

He said: “We like to pigeonhole Rafael Nadal as the clay-court guy, Novak Djokovic as the hardcourt guy and Roger Federer as like the king of Wimbledon. But Novak has won five titles at Wimbledon since 2011. He has by far been the most dominant player of the decade at Wimbledon and it does not get talked about enough.

“Two of his biggest adversaries at Wimbledon during that time – Andy Murray and Roger Federer – might not be at full flight so I think Novak Djokovic is the obvious favourite”.
