As of June 2017, Novak Djokovic Holds the Second-Highest

match winning rate in the open era.

Winning a staggering 82.7% of his matches

For the past few years Novak Djokovic has been the dominant force in the game of men's tennis, holding the number one spot in the ATP rankings for a total of 223 weeks.

But heading to Wimbledon he now sits as the world number four after a string of poor performances at the majors, means he's now not won a major in four attempts despite winning six of the previous eight.

It's a drop in form that has also meant changes off the court, most notably dropping six-time major champion Boris Becker as his coach in an attempt to boost his energy levels and raise his level of play.

That was done just before the turn of the year, but Novak is yet to see any positive effects in 2017.

He was dumped out in the second round of the Australian Open by wildcard pick Denis Istomin, and then lost in straight sets to Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals of the French Open.

Hardly the vintage Djokovic we've been used to.

But will Wimbledon change his fortunes in the next two weeks?

He's certainly got an excellent record here, winning three of his four Wimbledon finals, and making it to the second week in eight of his 12 appearances at the All England Club.

It will all depend on whether he can keep his head in the game for the full two weeks.
