As usual, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray are playing well at Wimbledon, leading the way into Week 2.
"It's their turf," said Ernests Gulbis, who stood in Djokovic's way in the third round but failed to present too much of an obstacle. "It's their home court."
Indeed, it is.
Not since Lleyton Hewitt won the championship 15 years ago has someone other than Federer (a record-equaling seven titles in that span), Djokovic (three), Nadal (two) or Murray (two) left Wimbledon with the men's singles title. In addition, that so-called Big 4 accounts for eight runner-up finishes during that stretch.
Count Federer among those...
