Since becoming the World No. 1 Andy Murray is yet to lift a major title. With him being the No. 1 seed, expectations would be higher.

Since 2008, Murray has not lost before the last eight in back to back quarter finals so he has to get his act together in Paris for the tournament in the last week in May. After crashing out early in Australia – in the fourth round to MischaZverev – he would need a good turn out this time around.

Novak Djokovic has left everything in doubts with his recent tennis. As the defending champion and as someone who did a career Grand Slam last year, he needs to prove a point. His world No. 2 status is also at stake with him posting loss after loss this year. Unlike Murray, in over a decade he has not lost in back to back quarter finals at majors. After his slump against Denis Istomin in the Australian Open and his recent one at Monte Carlo, Djokovic desperately needs to save face.

Djokovic is the first man since the 1960s to win four majors straight but like he says he has other things to focus on now. Murray needs to come through badly this year as age might not favour him if he stays out any longer. He could lift the French Open for the first time in his career, and show his prowess in a clay court. In two weeks, Murray could maintain his career Grand Slam ambitions but anything short would be a tough bet for the Briton.

Many would expect more from Murray at Wimbledon but he has to convince his doubters that he deserves a seat at the league of the bests like Federer, Rafa, and Djokovic.
