“I’m so happy to be coming back to The Boodles. It’s always great preparation for Wimbledon for me because I know that the quality of the tennis and the opponents is always really high,” said Djokovic. “Stoke Park is a beautiful place to play and the crowd always makes it lots of fun for us too.”

Djokovic will be joined at The Boodles 2013 by former US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro, 2011 Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych, Croatia’s Marin Cilic and rising Canadian star Milos Raonic.
