Watch Djokovic on Inside Sport - Monday at 2320 BST on BBC1
Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic insists Andy Murray has what it takes to become one of the world's top five players - and to one day win Wimbledon.
"He just needs to settle down mentally, and just play tennis," the world number three told BBC Inside Sport. "He has enough quality, talent, and potential."
Both 20, Djokovic and British number one Murray were hugely-rated prospects as they rapidly rose through the ranks.
But Murray is now world number 20 while the Serb claimed a 2008 Grand Slam win.
A dominant Djokovic brushed aside Murray on clay at the Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday in straight sets 6-0 6-4.
And while Murray has now failed to defeat Djokovic on the four occasions they have met, he insists the Scot can emerge as one of the world's best after his career has seemingly stalled.
You don't have the hunger for the success because you have everything on the plate
"He has his ups and downs," he said.
"He has enough potential to be a top five player, and everybody expects him to do that.
"But obviously he has so much pressure on him because Great Britain needs a champion, badly, and a Wimbledon champion especially.
"But, throughout his entire career, he's been mentally a very strong player, so I can expect that he's going to come fast to the top five."
Djokovic, who sprang a huge surprise by claiming the Australian Open in January, also tells Inside Sport that British children do not currently have the neccessary hunger for success.
"You just have to find the right moment and to change the mentality of the coaches and the kids," he said.
