Wimbledon 2012: Andre Agassi Has Faith In Andy Murray, But Favors Novak Djokavic To Win

Andre Agassi is one of the greatest men's tennis players in the history of the game. After winning at Wimbledon 20 years ago, he knows a thing or two about what it takes to win at the All-England Club and as such, despite picking defending champion Novak Djokavic to win at Wimbledon, he does believe American Andy Murray has a chance according to a report by the UK's Daily Mail:

Agassi said: 'I think Murray has it in him to go the distance. You have to play good matches from here on in, but really he has to play a great match at the right time, and that's still ahead of him.'

Still, despite his faith in Murray, he knows that defeating Djokavic will be a tough task

'I always favour Djokovic,' said Agassi. 'I just think it's his time in his career, he's proven that in the last year and a half or so. You've got to give him the advantage.'
