I wouldn't say anyone is a clear favourite tbh, thats why it's so interesting this year.

Either one of Djokovic,Nadal,Murray or Federer can win it. If Stronga turns up then he could very well knock one or 2 of them off.

So no, Murray isn't the favourite. He's one of the favourites but not 'the' favourite

It will depend a lot on the draw who will be the favorite for Wimbledon.

One of the favourites, and has a real chance to win, but not THE favourite.

he'll have his chances but saying 'the favorite' is kinda silly (he's never won it before). I think he'll struggle with both Fed (assuming his form is OK) and especially Nadal. Also, many guys here underestimate Djokovic on grass ...

Djokovic is a bit of a wild card tbh. If he's confident and fit then of course he'll be in the mix but it's less of a sure thing than the other three bringing their A Game to the grass.

He did, deal with it.

I think that the real top 4 have pretty much the same chances here.

No.Considering that Andy has never won Wimby it's kinda silly to say that he is the 'favourite'.But definitely he has a real chance.

Just wait and see what will happen...

The Djokovic "should have never won Wimbledon" line is even tastier when it comes through the tears of little Rafatards such as that brat . It's a joy to read.

Even if his movement is not perfect on the surface, if his serve gets going and he decides to strike his FH, he can be very, very dangerous. He is also willing to come to the net (even if he's not brilliant) and he is, after all, the world #1, so if he plays well, you'd need a very good performance to overcome him. Or be Federer.

As rocketassist pointed out, there doesn't seem to be a clear favourite for SW19 (yet).
