Carlos Alcaraz, Novak Djokovic and other great stars of world tennis have arrived at Wimbledon to begin their preparation for the grass tournament.

Alcaraz, defending champion, will try to win his second consecutive Grand Slam after lifting the Coupe des Mousquetaires at Roland Garros. The No. 3 in the PIF ATP Rankings worked out on Monday on the training court under the watchful eye of Samuel López.

Alcaraz began his season on grass at the cinch Championships in London, where he fell in the second round against the British Jack Draper, who is going through a great moment of form. The Spaniard is 17-3 in grass matches on tour, according to the Infosys ATP win-loss index.

Novak Djokovic, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, has also made it to The Championships.

The Serbian has been working hard after his recent knee operation. Djokovic withdrew before the Roland Garros quarterfinals due to a torn meniscus in his right knee.

A year ago, Alcaraz defeated Djokovic in a memorable Wimbledon final. The players, who have shared five Lexus ATP Head2Head matchups (Djokovic leads 3-2), embraced on Monday at the tournament headquarters a week before the action begins.

Djokovic moved past Alcaraz into the No. 2 spot in the PIF ATPRankings this week following the Spaniard’s early loss at Queen’s. Jannik Sinner will enter the tournament as world No. 1 and top seed in a Major for the first time in his career.
