Djokovic accepts Queen's Club wildcard ahead of Wimbledon

Djokovic accepts Queen's Club wildcard ahead of Wimbledon

Djokovic is a lowly 21st in the ATP rankings after the struggling Serb's wretched run continued with an embarrassing French Open quarter-final defeat against Italian journeyman Marco Cecchinato last week.

But Djokovic, a three-time Wimbledon champion, has instead made a decision to start his preparations for the grass-court Grand Slam earlier than usual by entering the prestigious Queen's tournament, starting in west London on June 18.

He said it "will be great preparation for Wimbledon", which begins on 2 July.

Novak Djokovic has been handed a wild card into next week's Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club.

After being treated for neck pain during that match, the 12-time grand slam victor cast doubts on his Wimbledon participation following his Roland Garros exit.

1 had said he didn't know whether if play on grass. "I'm just not thinking about tennis at the moment".

"Grass is very special, it is the rarest of surfaces so I'm happy I'll have the opportunity to compete at this strong tournament, which will also be a great preparation for Wimbledon", he said.

Marian Vajda (coach) and Gebhard Phil-Gritsch (fitness trainer) will be with me in London, and this makes me happy.' Djokovic lost 2008 final to Rafael Nadal and won 2010 doubles title alongside Jonathan Erlich.

Murray, a five-times victor at Queen's, has been out of action since last July with a hip problem and is expected to make his comeback at the London tournament next week, although he has already delayed his return by pulling out of a grasscourt event in the Netherlands this week.
