Djokovic begins with a qualifier, yet to be named. The 34-year-old last appeared on July 30.
A Wimbledon final rematch with No. 6 seed Matteo Berrettini is a strong possibility in the quarterfinals. Tenth seed Hubert Hurkacz, No. 20 seed Lorenzo Sonego and unseeded floater Marton Fucsovics should also be in the mix.
The foe who ended Djokovic’s Golden Slam bid, Alexander Zverev, is the highest seed in his half at No. 4. Zverev was two points from winning it all here last year, but the likes of Denis Shapovalov, Pablo Carreño Busta, Jannik Sinner, Karen Khachanov and Sebastian Korda are all possible spoilers for the German.
