Lendl's reunion with Murray no threat to Djokovic at Wimbledon: Henman

Former Britain No 1 Tim Henman has picked top-ranked Novak Djokovic as favourite for the Wimbledon, the third major of the season.

The Serbian defending champion has been in superb form this year, having won all four Grand Slam titles after beating Andy Murray in the French Open final earlier this month. He has also notched up a total of 44-3 win-loss record for the year.

Henman insisted that Djokovic plays with consistency and is the clear favourite for any tournament, but admitted that second-ranked Murray has also separated himself from the rest of the players.

The Briton said that although reunion with former coach Ivan Lendl would work in favour of Murray, he added that this re-enlistment is not going to bother Djokovic.

The Wimbledon Championships is slated to be held from June 27 to July 10.
