Andy Murray: breaking down his track record at Wimbledon

Murray in training at the All England club

It will be only the Scot's second competitive match on grass this summer as he lost in the first round of the Aegon Championships. The court probably won't be as quick as Australia, but few are as good and seasonsed on the grass as the Swiss.

'With a new baby on its way, I would think he would take some time off after Wimbledon, drop out of the hard-court season and get all sorted, ' Wilander told ESPN.

"He then hit with 17-year-old Scottish junior Aidan McHugh and looked fairly comfortable and relaxed, with his team looking relaxed too".

And there have been no better performers on the surface this season than Federer, who won Halle, Gilles Muller (Rosmalen victor, Queen's semi-finalist) and Feliciano Lopez (Stuttgart runner-up, Queen's champion). This is clearly not an ideal preparation. We all felt the same way, that it's better to save myself and give it all I have for the rest of the season. "I had success without feeling myself in great shape", he added.

And now, Federer, who turns 36 in August, is poised to break the tie for seven Wimbledon titles he shares with Pete Sampras and take his career tally at the majors to 19.

GB No 2 Kyle Edmund has never won a match at Wimbledon but will get a chance this time when he faces a qualifier, whose names have yet to be put in the draw, including world number 855 Alex Ward.

But as the defending champion, Murray has the honour of opening proceedings on Wimbledon s Centre Court next week and Federer believes the 30-year-old will be there for the start of the tournament.

Two of the most successful active tennis players at the All England Club head into this year's Wimbledon tournament as the favorites to win it again.

"It's the same for Novak and the same for Rafa".

"I'm practising again later".

Nadal was in vintage form in Paris, dropping only 35 games on his way to a staggering 10th title at Roland Garros. "You play on grass for only three weeks".

Having said that, it could really pay off to place your bets with bet365, not only due to competitive prices on a plethora of pre-match and in-play markets, but also due to their 50% Tennis Accumulator Bonus.

"I experienced very negative moments when I was trying to play, and I was not in great shape, like a year ago in Roland Garros, or like here in 2012".

"Let's see what's going on this year".

"I would know more about it, I think, if it had been a really significant injury".

He would surely go into the tournament with loads of confidence, especially after clinching his ninth Halle title.

"But at the end, I am here to play round by round and focusing only on my matches, not about the numbers or the rankings, the points I have to defend, or whatever".
