Djokovic ready to be first among equals at Wimbledon

LONDON, JUNE 22: Novak Djokovic is targeting a record-equalling 20th major and sixth Wimbledon title from next week, edging him closer to becoming only the third man to complete a calendar Grand Slam.
The world number one has already won a ninth Australian Open and second French Open this season.
That has put him halfway to emulating Don Budge (1937) and Rod Laver (1962 and 1969) in sweeping all four majors in the same year.
It is a feat that even his closest rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have never managed and will probably never achieve.
"Everything is possible," said 34-year-old Djokovic after winning the French Open earlier this month when asked if the Golden Slam of all four majors and Olympic Games gold was a realistic target.
"I've achieved some things that a lot of people thought it would be not possible for me to achieve."    -AFP
