Novak Djokovic overcame French Open heartbreak to win Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014. Can he do it again?

  1. Can Novak Djokovic overcome the devastation of losing to Stan Wawrinka in the French Open final and defend his Wimbledon title? He is said not to be one to dwell on loss. Still, this one had to sting like no other. Can he put aside that sting as he did when he lost to Roger Federer in the French semifinals in 2011 then went on to win Wimbledon and the No. 1 ranking?

  2. Speaking of Fed, can he summon his glory days to win his 18th Slam?

  3. Can Rafael Nadal – who won one grass tournament and lost early in another recently – regain the form that made his Wimbledon matches with Fed so memorable?

  4. Can Andy Murray, who’s won Wimbledon and won Olympic gold there and is having a good year, capture Wimby again?

  5. Can someone – Stan perhaps, or a grass-court artist like Grigor Dimitrov – wrest the title from one of the Big Four?

Stay tuned.
