128 players will be fighting during the two weeks for The Championships title, 2000 ATP points and £850,000 prize money.

Last year, Rafael Nadal lifted the trophy for the first time, beating five-time champion Roger Federer in five sets. The result was 6-4, 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-7(8), 9-7!

In his fifth appearance at Wimbledon, Novak will start the tournament with the match against world number 80, Julian Benneteau (France).

Finals: Andy Murray (GBR, 3), Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG,5), Andy Roddick (USA, 6)…

World number one will not defend his Wimbledon title. He withdrew from the Championships after failing to recover from knee tendinitis.

Last year, Novak lost in the second round to Marat Safin 4-6 6-7(3) 2-6.

Good luck Nole!
