Novak Djokovic is now regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, thanks to his recent achievements, and he will enter Wimbledon as the defending champion, this summer.

The Serbian won three Majors in 2011 and started 2012 in the same manner, by defending his Australian Open title, but his ambitions to hold all the Grand Slams were thwarted by Rafael Nadal at the French Open.

Djokovic remains the world number one, but he has not been able to recapture the stunning form of 12 months ago, where he entered Wimbledon with only one loss in 42 matches, and his only titles have come at Melbourne Park and the Sony Open.

The 25-year-old will enter Wimbledon as the top seed, and a lot is expected from him, as his consistent baseline play is perfect for the grass courts of the All England Club.

He has one Wimbledon title and made two further semi-final appearances, and so he comes into the competition with some heritage there and, despite not hitting the heights of last year, no-one will want to draw the world number one.

In recent Grand Slams, it has been Djokovic, Nadal competing in the final, while world number three, and four, Roger Federer and Andy Murray, have tended to fill the semi-final slots.

Given their recent records, the top four are expected to dominate the draw, come Wimbledon, with Jo Wilfried Tsonga identified - on Betfair - as the one man who could break up the monopoly.

After losing the French Open final, there will be a determination around Djokovic to defend his Wimbledon crown and impress on the grass courts, ahead of the London 2012 Olympic tournament, which is another the Serb will be hoping to add to his impressive collection of trophies.

Fans making a tennis bet online believe that Juan Martin del Potro could also fare well at the All England Club, this year.
