Resurgent Novak Djokovic tipped to threaten Roger Federer Grand Slam haul
Former British number one Tim Henman believes that fit-again Novak Djokovic can threaten Roger Federer’s Grand Slam haul.
Djokovic confirmed his return to the top after a two-year struggle with injury by winning Wimbledon – his 13th Grand Slam title.
Federer currently stands at 20 but Henman believes that Djokovic can achieve a similar feat now he has rediscovered his best tennis.
“He’s got a chance,” Henman told Sky Sports.
“He’s had a difficult two years, a few issues on and off the court.
“He had elbow surgery earlier this year and looked like he was struggling with the confidence in his game but the last three months he’s really been moving in the right direction.

“The way he played at Queens – he had match point in the final against Marin Cilic and I felt that he was going to be a (Wimbledon) contender.
“As he went through Wimbledon he got better and better. He had a good win over Kyle Edmund in the third round and then built from that.
“His match against Nadal was one of the best matches I’ve commentated on ever and then by the time he got through to the final he was going to be clear favourite against [Kevin] Anderson.
“Not only with the history of their match-ups but also Anderson playing 11 hours for two matches. It’s a great performance from him.”
