Is it really a year since Novak Djokovic lifted the gold trophy aloft in the centre court sunshine .?
Djokovic has not played since the French Open Final, at Rolland Garros ,where he suffered defeat to the man in the jazzy shorts, Stan Warwrinka.
How this defeat has affected Novak we will find out tommorow, but unlike many first round matches, Where easy opponents are put in front of the defending champion, Monday’s challenger is Philipp Kohlschreiber the more than able German.
if Djokovic is off the pace or out of touch he will not get away with it against the unseeded German.
So tommorow promises some really exciting encounters, Brit Jo Kionta faces Maria Sharapova, the second match on cente court.
Konta played some great tennis in Eastbourne last week and will be fascinating to measure her progress up against the number 4 seed
So two weeks of great tennis lay ahead, the weather forecast is good, so get your strawberries and sun cream ready it’s going to be a blast.
