What do you think? Is Djokovic still the man to beat at Wimbledon, or will his unexpected drubbing in the RG final leave a mark?

Isn't the first time he went to Wimbledon after a disappointment at RG. Djokovic - Murray - Federer as joint favourites for the title.

Yes, I think so. But he's not an overwhelming favourite, by any means. Similar to 2013.

The extra week also gives players a better chance to adapt to grass-courts -- that could work in favour of the top players. I predict we'll see fewer upsets at Wimbledon as a result.

If Murphy took Djokovic to 5 sets on clay then the Serb must be pretty worried about Wimbledon chances.

Hopefully Djokovic is favorite for every slam from now on if this is how he handles the pressure :haha: Rafa was onto something by constantly proclaiming himself the underdog

I had Murray as the fave before the RG final. I now have him as joint fave with Djokovic.
I am surprised you don't think Murray's chances are even better now. His match against Djokovic was no walk in the park for Djoker. I noticed that Murray has some unforgivable mental lapses though, and that's something he has to work on.

Depends. He matches up well with Murray these days but if Murray doesn't have to play him then he is the big favourite. He might have a slump after this crushing loss though.

Djokovic is paper favourite but I'd put Murray over him.
