Novak Djokovic has been confirmed in the third Grand Slam of the season, Wimbledon, where he will be one of the favorites after overcoming the injury and subsequent operation in the medial meniscus of the right knee.

The Serbian has already spent almost a week training on the lawn of the Cathedral tennis, looking for the best pace after almost two weeks of recovery and this Friday he was able to know his way in the main draw of the British tournament.

The seven-time tournament champion, who played last year’s final against Carlos Alcaraz, will have a slightly simpler start than Jannik Sinner, with more accessible rivals. In the first round, the Serbian will meet the player coming from the standings, Vit Kopriva, while in the second round will meet one between the British guest Fearnley and the Spanish Moro Cañas.

In the third instance already appear names known as those of the Argentine Tomás Etcheverry, who already won him this year in clay, and the Australian Alexei Popyrin, who could present some threat the owner of 98 professional titles.

Novak Djokovic looks ready

In a recent interview with Tennis365, Aussie ace Alex de Minaur reflected on Novak Djokovic’s injury: "I’m not surprised, he’s superhuman. He’s done amazing things before and I hope he’s back and ready for Wimbledon. I’m pretty sure he’ll come back playing at the highest level and as if he never had an injury. That’s what we expect from Novak and we shouldn’t be surprised at anything he does".

In the fourth round the level of demand for Djokovic increases since in the panorama appears the name of the number 15 of the world, Holger Rune, and the number 21, the Russian Karen Khachanov. In the quarter-final round, Djokovic could collide with one of the most fit and dangerous rivals on this surface, the Polish Hubert Hurkacz, who comes from playing the final of the ATP 500 of Halle with Jannik Sinner.

Moving on to the semifinals, Djokovic could see each other with one between Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev or even Taylor Fritz, an instance that could also reach other figures such as Sebastian Korda or Jack Draper, the last winner in Stuttgart.

For the grand final and chasing the 25th title at Grand Slams, Djokovic could play against Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz or Italian Jannik Sinner, the other two contenders for the crown in London.
