Djokovic Highs despite first set down Brit Jack Draper Wimbledon Opener

Novak Djokovic wins despite first set down to British Jack Draper Wimbledon 2021 Opener.




British teenager Jack Draper wowed the returning home crowd by taking the opening set off Novak Djokovic before the defending champion reasserted his authority on day one at Wimbledon 2021 Opening Match.


The two-time defending champion was 0 for 7 converting break points in the first set, which he lost to 19-year-old British wild card Jack Draper. Djokovic slipped several times on the grass but hit 25 aces and rallied to win 4-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.


Draper is ranked 250th and was making his main-draw Grand Slam debut.


Djokovic is seeking his sixth Wimbledon title and a record-tying 20th major title. He’s halfway to sweeping the Grand Slams in 2021.


Djokovic won the 2019 Wimbledon tournament the last time, beating Roger Federer in an epic final.



Djokovic Next Match schedule.


Djokovic will play either South Africa's Kevin Anderson - who he beat in the 2018 final - or Chilean qualifier Marcelo Barrios Vera in the second round.
