    Defending champion and top seed Novak Djokovic starts his challenge for a seventh Wimbledon title tonight against South Korea's Kwon Soon-woo

    Defending champion and top seed Novak Djokovic starts his challenge for a seventh Wimbledon title tonight against South Korea's Kwon Soon-woo


    Djokovic feels he's in a good space to win a fourth consecutive title, something only Bjorn Borg, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer have done in the Open era.



    Djokovic's ranking will plummet after Wimbledon, due to the ATP Tour suspending ranking points over the ban on Russian and Belarusian players... currently third, he could slip as low as eighth.
