Many questions have been floating around since the beginning of the tennis season. Will the Big 4 dominate once again? Can Murray keep the top spot? Can some of the next generation players turn the tides and win a couple of Masters titles or even Grand Slams?

But the most interesting question that keeps popping up in the mind of every tennis fan certainly has to be about Novak Djokovic. What happened to him? Will he be able to get back on the right track?

The 2017 season so far provided some answers. With both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal playing at their best and with the young guns on the rise, we can't help ourselves but wonder: Is Novak Djokovic ever going to be the World Number 1 again?

With his evident drop in form, this question seems a little out of place.

Djokovic fell to World Number 4 after losing his French Open title

There is no doubt that Djokovic's loss at the French Open quarterfinals was a little unexpected. But it was not the fact that he lost that worried his fans, but the way he lost it. The straight-set loss at the hands of Austrian Dominic Thiem wasn't something that many tennis experts expected. The way he lost the match was rather shocking, to say the least, especially given the fact that Djokovic showed the signs of improvement when he reached the finals in Rome. As a result of that loss, not only did he lose the French Open title, but he also dropped to number 4 on ATP list.

Having that in mind it, it seems as though reaching the World Number 1 in the near future is nothing but a sweet dream. But actually, it is not. In theory, he can do it even after Wimbledon. Of course, this task is tough, maybe harder than ever given the competition. But it is possible if he can play his best tennis again.

What needs to happen in order for Djokovic to reclaim No. 1 spot after Wimbledon?

Wimbledon starts on Monday. And maybe for the first time in years, Djokovic is not the favorite for winning the tournament. At least that is what the most tennis experts and Djokovic himself agree on. But one thing is for sure, he is not going to give up without a fight.

Novak has the chance of regaining the top spot even though his current ranking doesn't sound promising at all. Of course, this isn't going to be easy and not everything will be in his hands.

All it takes for Djokovic to reclaim the World No. 1 spot after Wimbledon is that he wins the tournament and Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal to lose before the semifinals.
