Djokovic Accepts Eastbourne Wild Card

Serbian star to compete on south coast of England for the first time

World No. 4 Novak Djokovic has accepted a wild card into the Aegon International Eastbourne, which begins on 23 June. It is the first time he has appeared at an ATP World Tour grass-court tournament since the 2010 Aegon Championships.

The three-time former Wimbledon champion will lead the ATP World Tour 250 tournament field, which includes Gael Monfils, John Isner, Steve Johnson and two-time champion Feliciano Lopez.

“This will be my first trip to Eastbourne, I have heard great things about the tournament,” said Djokovic. “I am looking forward to fine tuning my grass court game there ahead of Wimbledon.”

Tournament director Gavin Fletcher said he was delighted to welcome Djokovic to Devonshire Park in Eastbourne. “The quality of the men’s and women’s entries is already incredibly high, and the addition of Novak will take the event to an even higher level,” said Fletcher.

There are still a limited number of Centre Court tickets available on Monday, 26 June and Tuesday, 27 June, with Court 1 and ground passes still available throughout the week. Centre Court tickets are currently sold out from Wednesday, 28 June to Saturday, 1 July.
