Five-time Wimbledon champion Bjorn Borg believes Andy Murray is one of only four men capable of winning the tournament this year.

Murray will go into the tournament as fourth seed but won the AEGON Championships at Queen’s Club last week, and even with strong competition Borg thinks the Scot has a great chance of landing a first grand slam title.

“Murray, Djokovic, Nadal and Federer. There are four guys right now all playing great tennis,” Borg said

“We can expect a special Wimbledon that has not happened for a few years. It is tough because I like all four guys and I cannot see anyone win except for (one of) these four.”

Borg, 55, highlighted Murray’s performances over the past few months as a reason to believe he can become the first British men’s singles winner at Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

“He has an unbelievably good chance, he had the best clay-court season and reached the semi-finals in Paris. He played great at Queen’s and is feeling very confident.”
