World No. 1 Novak Djokovic may have suffered heartbreak after losing out on yet another opportunity of completing his career Grand Slam at the French Open 2015 recently, but the Serb has received some encouraging words from former top-ranked Briton Tim Henman.

Henman, a six-time Grand Slam semifinalist, heaped praise on the Paris runner-up, touting him as the lone ‘favourite’ to win the premier grass event – Wimbledon Championships this year ahead of all of his top rivals.

40-year-old Henman further added that he considers Great Britain’s Andy Murray as the joint second favourite alongside grass-court specialist Roger Federer and French Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka for the prestigious event at All England Club.

“I would put Murray joint-second favourite with Federer and and Wawrinka,” Henman was quoted as saying by ClubCall.

He continued: “Murray’s game in the first six months has been the best start to a year in his career. He is healthy, he’s playing the right way, he’s been very aggressive from the back of the court and that bodes well for the grass.”
