Andy Murray can capitalise on "the form of his life" to claim a second Wimbledon title in three years, according to Tim Henman.
Former world No 4 Henman has tipped his fellow Brit to add to his 2013 crown, after Murray won a fourth Queen's Club title and reached the French Open semi-finals.
World No 3 Murray is the third seed for Friday's Wimbledon draw, and could end up with Rafael Nadal in his half after the 14-time Grand Slam winner dropped to No 10 in the world to increase the likelihood that he'll meet one of the elite players in a blockbuster quarter-final.
Andy will be going onto the court feeling that if he does all the right things, as he has been, then he will have a great chance against anybody.
"This first six months of the year is as good as I've ever seen Murray play," four-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Henman said.
"He's in the form of his life and is definitely in the best shape to fight for the Wimbledon title again.
"He's won everything before on grass, so he will really fancy his chances."
Murray became the first British men's singles champion for 77 years with his 2013 triumph and this year's challenge has been built upon a strong showing on clay courts.
A pair of titles in Munich and Madrid were followed by an impressive Roland Garros run to the semi-finals before losing to Novak Djokovic. Henman insists Murray can transfer that success onto his favourite surface when Wimbledon kicks off next Monday.
"His form was really emphasised by his performances and results on clay, which is still the toughest surface for him," said Henman.
"Winning in Munich, winning in Madrid, beating Nadal in the final of a Masters series, the way he played reaching the semis of the French, that's a great foundation moving forward.
"That all really makes a difference. Andy will be going onto the court feeling that if he does all the right things, as he has been, then he will have a great chance against anybody."
