Legend predicting best Wimbledon ever

Tennis legend Bjorn Borg predicts this could be the most exciting Wimbledon tournament of all time as there are four top class players all coming into SW19 in peak form.

The Swedish legend is a five-time champion at Wimbledon and enjoyed some classic rivalries in his time, but nothing compared to the prospect awaiting tennis fans when the great tournament gets underway next week. Anyone looking for Wimbledon best bets will be hoping things live up to the hype.

Rafa Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray sit in the top four spots in the world rankings and look likely to clash in the semi-final stage and anyone placing Wimbledon tennis bets should remember this.

All of the stars have shown this season they are capable of winning Wimbledon, with Nadal recently winning the French Open title by beating a reformed Federer in the final.

Between them Nadal and Federer have eight Wimbledon titles between them and have dominated the tournament in recent years, but all the eyes in the tennis world have been on Djokovic after he went 43 matches unbeaten from the start of the season to win titles after titles, including the Australian Open.

And then you throw Murray into the mix after he won the AEGON Championships on grass earlier this week, showing some top form in the process, and he will have the passionate home crowd behind him.

Bjorg reckons this is currently the "new golden age of tennis" and the tournament is going to really tough and entertaining when play gets underway at Wimbledon.

"I think Wimbledon is going to be the most exciting ever," he told BBC Sport.

"Everyone is physically healthy - no-one is injured. And they are all playing unbelievable tennis right now. I cannot see anyone else winning Wimbledon apart from these four guys."

If all four players progress to the semi-finals there is the mouth-watering prospect of Nadal taking on Murray and Federer versus Djokovic in what could possibly be the greatest Wimbledon last four matches in history.
