The greatest tennis tournament, Wimbledon, celebrates 125th anniversary. The third Grand Slam of the season will be held from June 20 till July 3, 2011, at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
128 players will be fighting during the two weeks for The Championships title and 2000 ATP points.
Last year, Rafael Nadal lifted the trophy for the second time, beating Czech Tomas Berdych in straight sets. The result was 6-3, 7-5, 6-4.
The Spaniard is defending 2,000 points, Nole 720, so should Nadal not win the title again, our Champ would be number 1 on July 4, as they are just 65 points apart.
The hottest tennis player on the planet this year, whose amazing run has resulted in a 41-1 record and seven ATP titles, can move to top spot if he reaches Wimbledon final, even if Rafa defends the title.
In his seventh appearance at Wimbledon, second-seeded Novak will open his campaign against world number 52, Jeremy Chardy (France).
Nole has won all their five previous encounters.
In the second round Djokovic will play against the winner of the match between Kevin Anderson and Illya Marchenko.
These are Nole’s potential rivals in the later stages of the tournament:
Third round: Marcos Baghdatis (CYP,32), James Blake (USA)
Fourth round: Viktor Troicki (SRB, 13), Michael Llodra (FRA, 19)
Quarterfinals: Robin Soderling (SWE, 5), Jurgen Melzer (AUT,11), Nikolay Davydenko (RUS,29), Lleyton Hewitt (AUS)
Semifinals: Roger Federer (SUI, 3), David Ferrer (ESP, 7), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA, 12), Mikhail Youzhny (RUS,18), David Nalbandian (ARG,28)
Finals: Rafael Nadal (ESP,1), Andy Murray (GBR, 4), Tomas Berdych (CZE,6), Andy Roddick (USA, 8), Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG,24)…
Last year, Novak lost in the semi-finals to Tomas Berdych 3-6, 6-7(9), 3-6.
Good luck Nole!
