Djokovic says he's pain free

11:03 am on 23 June 2014

Novak Djokovic insists the wrist injury that forced him to pull out of a Wimbledon warm-up event won't affect his bid to win the grasscourt grand slam event.

After being troubled by the right wrist problem since Monte Carlo in April, Djokovic has been taking extra care not to aggravate the injury.

The Serbian top seed has practised pain-free over the past few days and the 2011 Wimbledon champion expects to be fit enough to make a strong bid to win the All England Club crown for the second time.

Djokovic starts his Wimbledon campaign against Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan tonight.... also in action on first round matches are defending men's champion Andy Murray, Li Na and New Zealand's marina Erakovic.
