Djokovic to warm up for Wimbledon at Boodles


Djokovic to warm up for Wimbledon at Boodles

Novak Djokovic will take part in the Boodles invitational tournament this year as part of his Wimbledon 2013 preparations.

Novak Djokovic has joined a cast of world class players to take part in the Boodles invitational tournament this season. The grass court exhibition event is often a key part of the Wimbledon preparations for many of the world's best players, and the quality of the entry list only proves this.

In signing up for the event, Djokovic has joined a list of confirmed entrants that includes Juan Martin Del Potro, Tomas Berdych, Marin Cilic, Richard Gasquet, Grigor Dimitrov and Milos Raonic. Djokovic seems excited about being part of the line-up.

"I’m so happy to be coming back to The Boodles," said the world No. 1. "It’s always great preparation for Wimbledon for me because I know that the quality of the tennis and the opponents is always really high. Stoke Park is a beautiful place to play and the crowd always makes it lots of fun for us too."

Djokovic won the Wimbledon title in 2011 and will be eager to win the title for a second time. With Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the way, he can expect a tough battle in his bid for the title. On top of this, some of his Boodles rivals, namely Tomas Berdych, Juan Martin Del Potro and Milos Raonic, could achieve big things on the grass this season.
