Novak Djokovic has been having the year of his life, as he has already won the Australian Open and the French Open. He entered the tournament as the number one seed, with hardly any competition from his rivals and peers. He has played some phenomenal tennis this season, and his comebacks have been a statement of intent this tournament.

Djokovic will be on the verge of winning his third successive Wimbledon Championships title, having previously won it in 2018 and 2019. Along with this, he has the chance of winning the Calendar Grand Slam this year. He is already halfway through that challenge; however, he needs to win the Wimbledon Championships and the US Open as well.

The World No. 1 will be aiming for his 20th Grand Slam title, as he stands at 19 titles currently. He could equal the record of most Grand Slam titles won by men, as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are at 20. If he wins the finals at Wimbledon, it will be his sixth title, ranking him behind Roger Federer (8) and Pete Sampras (7).
