Novak Djokovic: Poses with the Wimbledon men's title

Novak Djokovic: Poses with the Wimbledon men's title

World No 1 Djokovic will be hoping to regain his Grand Slam winning touch when he defends his Wimbledon title.

The Serb came within touching distance of finally taking the elusive French Open crown, but his bid for a career Grand Slam was derailed by a defeat against Stanislas Wawrinka in the Roland Garros final.

Djokovic has switched his focus to the grass court campaign, a surface that served him well last year, and he returns to the All England Club as a champion following his 2014 final win over Roger Federer.

His enviable form in 2015 saw him win his fifth Australian Open title in January before adding four Masters 1000 crowns – Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo and Rome.

Djokovic could face long-term rival Federer again on his path to the trophy, while Andy Murray should also mount another challenge in front of the British fans.
