STORY: Defending champion Novak Djokovic was putting in the hard work on Wimbledon’s practice courts on Saturday (June 27) as he prepared to face Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber in the first round.
The Serbian top seed opens play on Monday (June 29) on Centre Court against Kohlschreiber, could face former champion Lleyton Hewitt in round two and Australia’s Bernard Tomic in the third round.
Hardly an ideal draw for the world number one who has not played a competitive match since losing to Stanislas Wawrinka in the French Open final, depriving him of a career grand slam.
The top seed has won eight grand slams, including this year’s Australian Open.
