Octozone: Roger Federer is ready to rock

Roger Federer is ready to rock again. Not only is the Swiss maestro in top form, but his planets are also in the right position.

Federer has been going through a tough Saturn phase since 2012. That's the main reason for his Grand Slam drought. But now Jupiter, the fifth lord of sport, is in an exalted position for Federer. This is the best time for the 17-time Grand Slam champion to get back to winning ways.

While the absence of Rafael Nadal will help his cause, the threat posed by World No. 1 Novak Djokovic isn't a significant one. In other words, Federer can handle him.

Jupiter's transit is equally beneficial to both contenders, but the Serbian has won a Grand Slam in July immediately after Jupiter's exaltation. So this time, Jupiter could favour Federer.

While the likes of Stanislas Wawrinka, David Ferrer and Andy Murray will not pose any threat to the title favourites, youngsters like Grigor Dimitrov, Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori can break the shackles anytime.

In the women's section, Serena Williams has a big chance to equal Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova by winning her 18th Grand Slam title. However, any 1987-born could also win it. You may also see a player born in the 1990s break into the top league and create history.
