Novak Djokovic warned his competition at Wimbledon that he is “100% ready” to go out next week.

Djokovic was beaten over five sets by Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros just two weeks ago, but he is eager to make up for missed chances when he steps out on the grass in London.

The Serbian has always made his complaints known about the short turn around time between the clay major and Wimbledon and his problems trying to adjust so quickly.

The 26-year-old has made the last four at SW19 for the last three years, going on to pick up his solitary piece of silverware at the All-England club in 2011 with victory over Nadal.

The six-time grand slam winner has been handed a favourable draw which should see him comfortably through to the latter stages, avoiding a possible quarter-final meeting with the Spaniard or Roger Federer.

Djokovic said:  “I know what I need to do in order to adjust to the faster surface in a very short period of time.

“It is difficult, but it’s the same for everybody. Hopefully I can do my best and I am sure I will be 100 per cent [ready] for Monday.”
