Wimbledon Predictions | Men’s Final Preview | Novak Djokovic vs Roger Federer
Wimbledon Predictions | Men’s Final
Despite the fact Andy Murray is not in the 2015 Wimbledon Men’s final, even British fans will admit, this has the makings of a cracking match.
The number one and number two seeds meet in a repeat of last year’s final and if this year’s can come close to that one, we are in for a treat. Djokovic vs Federer has been a closely fought rivalry over the years and as it stands, Federer leads 20-19.
Novak Djokovic is having a great year and this will be his third Grand Slam final of 2015. However, although the world number one has been incredibly consistent, the name on everyone’s lips at present is Roger Federer. The Swiss legend has been in superiors form during Wimbledon and has cruised through many of his matches, including a very stylish display against Murray in the semi-finals.
In that match, Federer won 84% of his first serve points and only faced one break point all match, which came in the first game. In-fact, the world number two has only been broking once at Wimbledon this year and has great momentum going in to the final. However, Djokovic will provide a different and stronger test than anything Federer has faced so far in the tournament.
Djokovic comes in to the Wimbledon final on the back of a severely disappointing defeat in the final at Roland Garros. Djokovic came back to win at Wimbledon in 2014, having lost in the final of the French Open but this year, the defeat to Wawrinka was even tougher to take. Psychology will certainly play a part in this match for Djokovic, especially as the crowd will be backing Federer.
However, Djokovic has been really tested in this tournament, battling back from two sets down to defeat Kevin Anderson, whereas Federer has seemingly breezed through, yet to really be placed under pressure. If Djokovic was to take the opening set against Federer, would the Swiss have what it takes to come back? We know that Djokovic definitely does.
Many people believe that Djokovic is yet to play to his best at Wimbledon this year, whereas Federer peaked against Murray in the semi-finals. It’s unclear as to whether Federer could repeat that performance a few days later, in a final, against the world number one.
Who will you be backing?
