Tennis great John McEnroe believes Novak Djokovic is more vulnerable than Andy Murray at Wimbledon.

World number one Djokovic faces Richard Gasquet in the semi-finals on Friday, having survived a tough five-setter against Kevin Anderson in the fourth round before breezing past Marin Cilic.

Murray has been more comfortable, but was pushed to four sets by both Andreas Seppi and Ivo Karlovic.

McEnroe, a seven-time grand slam champion and three-time Wimbledon winner, feels Murray holds the upper-hand.

"I think his [Murray's] health is good and it was more a mental thing when he was playing Seppi. There was a little bit of gamesmanship on both sides but he is through that," McEnroe said.

"I think both players are playing great, Novak has obviously been more consistent overall on the surfaces.

"But I think Andy gained some confidence at the French Open, as close as he was to beating him [in a five-setter] there so I think that helped him.

"And I think generally he is healthier than he has been for a while so I think that would tip me in that direction.

"I would by no means be shocked if it went the other way but I think Andy is a little bit better on this surface and Novak is slightly more vulnerable."
