Novak Djokovic Flattered Andy Murray Is Preparing To Beat Him

Novak Djokovic said he is flattered that Andy Murray and his coach Ivan Lendl are plotting ways to beat him at Wimbledon. Djokovic, the current All England Champion, is the overwhelming favourite to win this year's tournament as he holds all four grand slam titles and is the top seed.

Murray, who is seeded second, has not won a grand slam in almost three years and has lost 13 of his last 15 meetings with Djokovic. The Serb, who has already arrived in Britain, ahead of next week's event at the All England Club, responded after hearing that beating the world number one was a part of Murray's Wimbledon preparation.

He said “It's flattering to hear that, I know there's been a lot of talk about a potential match-up between Andy and me, and with Ivan coming to his team, but it's still very early. We have to be respectful to all the players at Wimbledon, more than 120 players.”

Murray has recently reunited with Lendl, after parting company with Amelie Mauresmo in May this year. The 29years old star was previously coached by the Lendl between 2012 and 2014, the most successful period of his career to date.

Boris Becker, Djokovic's coach, admitted he was surprised by Murray's decision to go back to Lendl but Djokovic disagreed saying “I don't think it's a surprising decision from Andy. When Ivan was his coach Andy won a couple of grand slams, an Olympic gold medal and made the best results in his career. I think it was a logical move for him to take. They're a good team so it's going to be an interesting tournament.”

As well as the calendar grand slam Djokovic could still win the golden slam if he adds an Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016 to that collection.
