LONDON: Roger Federer has backed Serbian Novak Djokovic to fight his way back from the brink of Wimbledon elimination when the world number one resumes his 3rd round match against Sam Querrey at two sets to love down.
The defending champion, who is looking to go level with Rod Laver’s mark of 31 successive Grand Slam wins, fell victim to big-hitting 28th seed Querrey on Court One on Friday 01 July.
Serbian most famoust and top player Djokovic and the two-time defending champion at Wimbledon and halfway to the first calendar Grand Slam in 47 years, was saved by the rain which brought an early close to the action.
Djokovic will now attempt to turn the match around on Saturday 02 July when he seeks to come back from two sets down for the fifth time in his career.
He did it against Kevin Anderson in the 4th round if we look previou year but failure against Querrey will condemn him to his earliest exit at Wimbledon in eight years.
