Novak Djokovic would have chosen which event to play before Wimbledon

According to Serbian media Novak Djokovic would have chosen to play a grass-court event before Wimbledon, and it's not Queen's and Halle neither, the two ATP 500 events that will be played next week. It seems that the World No.

4, who lost last week to Dominic Thiem at quarter-finals level at Roland Garros, would have accepted a wild card by ATP 250 Eastbourne tournament which is scheduled to be played from 26 June to 1 July just before Wimbledon.

He would be the strong favourite as other High seeded players are Pablo Cuevas, John Isner, Sam Querrey and the defending champion Steve Johnson. If he plays Eastbourne, Nole won't be in the Boodles exhibition that will be instead played by Rafael Nadal.

It's very unlikely that he chooses to play Queen's or Halle, as currently Djokovic is in Belgrade, Serbia, with his wife Jelena and all his family. Last time Djokovic played a grass-court event before Wimbledon was 2010, when he lost to Xavier Malisse in the third round of Queen's.
