Andy Murray made enough improvements both mentally and physically to beat Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon final on Sunday, according to John McEnroe.
Murray will line up against the Serbian – who has established himself as the man to beat on the ATP tour – looking to become the first British male winner at Wimbledon in 77 years.
The top two seeds will go toe-to-toe on Centre Court and bring an end to what has been a dramatic and incident-filled Grand Slam.
The Scot will join the likes of Fred Perry and Bunny Austin as the only British men to reach multiple finals at SW19.
The 26-year-old will be looking to use his experience from last year which saw him defeated by Roger Federer.
Three-time Wimbledon champion McEnroe admits that although the home favourite has struggled with injury – which kept him out of the French Open – and disappointment in the past, he has matured and developed a stronger game from that.
McEnroe said: “I favour Murray. I think that the physical aspect of Djokovic’s semi-final is going to have some impact. Novak is a truly, truly great player – both of these guys are – but I think the crowd is going to give Andy that extra 5-10%.
“When you toss all that into the mix, it’s going to be a fantastic final, but at the end of the day I think Murray is ready. He’s ready to finally do it.”
