Over the last two weeks, the best tennis players in the world have been battling on Roger Federer’s favorite surface-grass. As we all know Roger has taken a couple of months break after Miami Open, skipping clay court season altogether. The extended break did not stop him from winning Stuttgart and reaching the finals in Halle.
Roger played Milos Raonic in Stuttgart final, winning 6-4, 7-6(3). On contrary in Halle Roger lost in the final versus Croatian youngster Borna Coric 2-6 in the third set. This makes Borna one of the few current players holding wins against Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer, and Andy Murray. Last week another Croatian, Marin Cilic, won Queen’s tournament (London) beating Novak Djokovic in the finals.
I believe Roger Federer is still the favorite to win Wimbledon. Some serious contestants could be Novak Djokovic, Marin Cilic, and Milos Raonic. Rafael Nadal did not play any warm-up tournaments ahead of Wimbledon, therefore he will probably not present any real threat to Roger.
