While Novak Djokovic prepares to defend his Wimbledon title, tennis fans will also look forward to the return of Rafael Nadal to the grass courts of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

The Spaniard will enter the SW19 tournament off the back of a superb run at the French Open and is currently on track for the Calendar Slam.

Nadal, 36, won the Australian Open back in January and went on to win his 14th title at Roland-Garros earlier in June.

One name that currently does not appear on any list for Wimbledon is Roger Federer. The eight-time Wimbledon winner has not played professional tennis since undergoing knee surgery.
