Favourites to win Wimbledon this year?

Who are the favourites to win this year's Wimbledon title?In men the likely contenders are Federer,Nadal,Murray and Djokovic.Also Zverev,Thiem and Feleciano Lopez are young players who might shock everyone and go all the way.There is a big chance that either Djokovic or Murray win it this year.Also there is Stanislas Wawrinka who is such a talented player and if anybody deserves to complete Calendar Grand Slam-all 4 Grand Slams won once it's him.Federer is also in with a big shout to win the title again.Then there is Rafael Nadal who has always gone on to win Wimbledon whenever he has won French Open without losing a set.I would be delighted to see him win as I am a Rafael Nadal fan. In the women,the main contenders are Konta,Muguruza,Kerber,Halep and Kvitova.I am also quiet confused about the inconsistency among women apart from Serena and Sharapova to a lesser extent though Serena and Sharapova are not playing due to pregnancy and injury respectively.Bouchard and Sloanne Stephens are dark horses this time around and I would love to see Bouchard or Stephens win Wimbledon this time around although I want to see Kerber or Konta win the title.I don't think that Azarenka will win Wimbledon this time though she might reach 4th round or the quarter-final. Views?Fellow tennis fans?

Think Muguruza might win the womens and the men seems very difficult to call.

It's between Djokovic and Federer with Colic as a dark horse.

Yes I am. Just some very strange comments like Lopez being a youngster and nadal winning Wimbledon every time after he won the French. Also no mention of the favrioute to win the women's tournament pliskova. But talking about bouchard who has no chance of winning it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Certainly strange remarks, indeed.

Just saw this thread. Anyhow, the women's game has actually been a joy this tournament. Men's, not so much.

For people complaining about poor quality among women you guys need to see Pakistani women playing tennis.They are poor and they lack quality and skill unlike women competing for Grand Slams and other tournaments on WTA tour.

Federer won't win any GS for sure in my opinion.
=========================================

In the space of 1 day, Federer went from being one of the 2 favourites for WImbledon to not winning any grand slams for sure?

I have just got a feeling that Federer won't win Wimbledon with Djokovic,Nadal and Murray not reaching even semi-finals of Wimbledon in 2017.Federer is still the favourite but I have got a feeling that he might not win any Grand Slam at least this year.
