Andy Murray gunning for Novak Djokovic clash as Brit wants shot at revenge at Wimbledon

Andy Murray risks drawing a top player in his opening match at Wimbledon after missing out on a seeded spot. But he would love to face Novak Djokovic again.

Andy Murray said he would love to play Novak Djokovic again as the Brit is at risk of drawing his old rival in the first round of Wimbledon. The two-time champion at SW19 narrowly missed out on a seeded spot and could come up against a top player from the off. But Murray is ready for the challenge and still wants to play the Serb again, even if it’s not at Wimbledon.

Murray previously made it no secret that his goal was to be seeded at Wimbledon this year. He made strides after winning back-to-back Challenger titles in Surbiton and Nottingham but a first-round loss at Queen’s saw his dream come to an end, as he is ranked at No 39 while the top 32 get in as seeds.

The former world No 1 could now come up against anyone in his opening match when a seeding would have ensured that he wouldn’t face anyone in the top 32 spots. But Murray is still feeling confident given his recent form and is ready to face even the toughest players in the draw.

“Well, ideally, that wouldn’t happen right at the beginning,” he said when asked whether he would relish the challenge of facing someone like Djokovic as early as round one. “I mean, I would obviously want that to happen probably later in the tournament.”
