Novak Djokovic: Can He Overtake Rafael Nadal as the World's Best?
French Open aside, it's so far so good for Novak Djokovic in 2011, with the Australian Open champion looking to win his first-ever grass court title at Wimbledon.
Safely through to the fourth round at SW19, Djokovic has been relatively untroubled as he looks to rekindle the form that saw him go 41 matches unbeaten until his semifinal defeat to Roger Federer at Roland Garros.
And with the big Serb likely to beat fourth-round opponent Michael Llodra and progress even further, here are four reasons why Novak Djokovic can win Wimbledon 2011 and become the best player on the ATP tour.
Right now, Novak Djokovic has the best return of serve in tennis.
No matter how fast or how angled his opponent can make their serve, it seems Djokovic is always able to make the return.
Last year, everybody talked up Andy Murray, claiming his return of serve was the best in the sport. This year, it's Novak Djokovic's turn.
Since his switch to a gluten-free diet and the strapping to protect his patella on the grass courts of Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic has taken his tennis to a whole new level.
The change in diet has been credited as a big factor in Nole's 41-game unbeaten streak, with the current world No. 2 having upped his game massively.
As noted before, his serve and return of serve have got better, his fitness has increased and his movement across the baseline is better than ever before.
Hardly ever giving up on a point, it appears Djokovic is now a player who will chase down anything as he looks to win every point possible.
A previously frustrating player who would often concede sloppy points, Novak Djokovic is finally starting to lower his unforced errors count as his game becomes more reliable.
He is still guilty of sloppiness when closing out a set, hitting the net too frequently as he loses concentration.
However, when the big points and match-deciding games come around, the Serb is ever reliable, as proven in the opening two rounds here at Wimbledon, especially against Jeremy Chardy, who made 15 more unforced errors than Nole.
When any athlete in any sport goes five months unbeaten, their confidence and self-efficacy is always going to go through the roof.
Novak Djokovic is no different, and for the big Serb, that's a good thing.
With his self-belief at its all-time high, having had the break he needed after those hectic few months, Djokovic will no doubt believe he has the talent and capability beat anyone on the ATP tour.
And with such confidence combined with all the previous reasons, there's no reason why the world's No. 2 can't do exactly that, i.e. beat anyone, including the player who knocked him off his stride at the French Open, Roger Federer.
