If you analyse the games of all the great men’s champions – Rod Laver, John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, whoever – you can normally find one small weakness. There has usually been one chink in their armour to give opponents some cause for optimism, no matter how tiny.

Novak Djokovic is different. I’m not necessarily saying that the defending Wimbledon champion is the best player in history, but can anyone point out a weakness in his game? Holy cow, you would need a microscope to find a flaw in this guy. Serve, return, forehand, backhand, volley, smash, drop shot, lob, movement, mental strength – man, Novak has it all.
