Novak Djokovic Form


It is hard to see how Novak Djokovic could be coming into Wimbledon on better form.

The Serb is a huge favourite to win three consecutive Wimbledon titles for the first time in his career, having won his fourth title in 2018 and his fifth by saving match points against Roger Federer in 2019.

Djokovic reigned supreme at the French Open, dethroning Rafael Nadal and coming back from two sets down against Stefanos Tsitsipas to win his 19th Grand Slam title. He has never lost a first-round match at Wimbledon and he has never lost a Grand Slam match against a wildcard.

Age: 19 (22 December 2001)

Jack Draper Form


Little known outside of British tennis circles, Jack Draper reached the final of the Wimbledon boys’ tournament in 2018 and was ranked as high as world no. 7 as a junior.

Draper failed to win a set in qualifying for Wimbledon in 2018 and 2019. He made his ATP Tour main-draw debut as a wildcard at the Miami Masters earlier in 2021, but was forced to retire after one set due to heat-related illness.

Draper earned his Wimbledon wildcard with a pair of impressive wins at Queen’s Club, where he surprisingly beat world no. 23 Jannik Sinner 7-6(6), 7-6(2) and went on to beat world no. 39 Alexander Bublik 7-6(5), 7-6(0). 

He may have a bright future but at the moment he has never faced a player of anything like Djokovic’s calibre. Nor has he played a best-of-five sets match.

Verdict

Djokovic is unlikely to be troubled against a player ranked outside the top 200 and completely inexperienced at this level. His last four Grand Slam first-round matches have been straight-sets wins and it is very likely this one will go the same way.
