Stan Wawrinka believes Andy Murray will go into Wimbledon as the third favourite to win this year’s men’s singles title. 

The newly crowned French Open champion expects Novak Djokovic to retain his title, and also rates seven-time winner Roger Federer higher than Murray.

The 30-year-old Swiss was beaten by Kevin Anderson at Queen’s Club on Wednesday and, when asked about who he thought would win at the All England Club in early July, Wawrinka said: "You want an order? I'd put Novak, Roger, then Murray.

"Novak is No 1. He's been playing so well since last year and especially this year.

"I'm sure after losing the French Open final he wants more, he wants to comeback and win the next big one.

"So he won last year (at Wimbledon). We all know that when he's playing his best tennis he's really good.

"If I put Roger next, I'm seeing the way he's playing. Even if he lost a few matches this year, I'm sure he's going to be ready for the grass.

"He loves to play on the grass. It's always tough to beat him. Last year I was really close.

"Also, I think with him with his confidence, if he can get through the first week or something, playing well, then he's going to be tough to beat.

"And then Andy because he loves grass, playing at home, and he's already won Wimbledon. He's playing really well this year. That's what I think."
