    Roger Federer is currently tied with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw for the most number of titles at Wimbledon with seven titles . In the past six months,He was winning all big matches including his 18th grand slam at the Australian open . Especially matches against nadal when he were not fully in his control. So Wimbledon will be very very difficult. Murray will be the man to defeat in Wimbledon if he plays well .But Federer knows it is his best chance to add a title to his cap and will give everything.I will be extremely happy to see him lifting the trophy for the record 8th time .Federer has improved and changed his play this year.Backhand is more stiff and strong now.He has also increased his Stamina now.But reality is that his winning chances totally depends upon Draw and Court Speed.Djokovic is always a terrible opponent for him in Wimbledon (though he is not in good form in 2017) He got beaten 2 times in Finals by Djokovic. Murray off course defending champion will be favourite but has not been playing well. He recently lost to his friend Tommy Haas at Stuttgart. This was on grass. Haas is 39 yrs old and ranked 302 in the world.Grass is an unusual surface. Fast. Even the best players are vulnerable to big servers on grass.It would be nice to see the draw before venturing a guess.
    On current form I would rate Federer’s chances as good. He is rested. Injury free, what do you all think a favourite again.

    I am rooting so hard for federer. He's been my idol since day 1 and I hope he wins this time. also, considering Djokovic's shock defeat this year twice, I think Federer has a high chance. Just need to play his natural game and set the tempo like he does. And if he gets going with his aces, no one can stop him.
