    The 18th time on Saturday and then admitted that overwhelming title favourite “deserves” to stand on the brink of history.

    Djokovic can draw level with Federer and on 20 Grand Slam titles if he secures a sixth Wimbledon title next weekend.

    Legendary, and loved by millions Roger Federer who entered for the last 16th for the 18th time on Saturday, admitted that overwhelming title favourite Djokovic “deserves” to stand on the brink of history.

    Djokovic can draw level with Federer and on 20 Grand Slam titles if he secures a sixth Wimbledon title next weekend.

    In his tweet Federer said “Manic Monday”

    Djokovic can draw level with Federer and Rafael Nadal on 20 Gram Slam titles if he secures a 6th Wimbledon title next weekend. That will leave the world number one needing just the US open in September to become the only the third man in history, and first since Rod Laver in 1969 to complete the calendar Grand Slam.

    “It’s just very, very impressive to see what he’s doing this year,” said Federer after beating Britain’s Cameron Norrie 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 on Saturday to book a place in the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the 69th time.

    “He’s able to have different ways how to win matches. He’s done incredibly well in Australia, now again also in Paris. That was exceptional, of course.

    “He looks like the big favourite here. He deserves it. He’s worked extremely hard. He’s playing great at the same time, too. He’s going to be tough to beat.”

    Djokovic has already achieved something that both Federer and Nadal have so far failed to do — win all four Slams twice.

    The Serb has this year also taken Federer’s record for total weeks spent at world number one.
