Roger Federer is hoping to win his ninth Wimbledon title

Federer has won eight Wimbledon titles over his illustrious career and he is well on the way to his ninth after a string of impressive displays this week.

Djokovic is one of the few contenders left in the competition who could stop the Swiss star reigning supreme once again.

Federer is looking to book his place in the fourth round of the competition when he takes on Jan-Lennard Struff on Centre Court this afternoon.

And Djokovic thinks the No 1 seed’s footwork will help him progress to the second week.

His footwork is quite impressive

“Footwork. Footwork. Footwork, without a doubt,” Djokovic said.

“His footwork is quite impressive.”

When Federer was asked about his own best attributes he replied “footwork and balance.”

And Djokovic thinks he is also quite strong in those departments.

“I mean, not to repeat his words, but that’s probably what I would say, as well,” he added.

“Balance is everything in our sport. Coordination, hand-eye coordination, leg-hand coordination, trying to find the proper rhythm in the movement, to be able to always get the best possible, so to say, stance before the shot.

“That’s what every tennis player is aiming for, to be able to penetrate the ball, hit the ball in the best possible way.

“Of course, you can’t always be in a perfect balance, but that’s what you’re looking for. That’s what you get with footwork, rhythm, and balance.”
