Bjorn Borg tips Sharapova to clam Wimbledon title.
Maria Sharapova is Bjorn Borg's tip to claim her second Wimbledon title.
The Russian won her first Grand Slam at SW19 as a 17-year-old in 2004 and reached the semis at the French Open last month.
Sharapova lost to defending champion Serena Williams last year in the fourth round. But Borg doubts the American can reclaim her title.
"I hope Serena comes back and enjoys her tennis and finds motivation but I don't think she is going to win this year," he said.
"Sharapova has struggled and grass is not her favourite surface but she is playing well enough to win here."
The only thing I can fault is I am pretty sure grass is Maria's favourite surface...
