Vit Kopriva v Novak Djokovic: How to watch, TV channel, start time and head-to-head stats

Novak Djokovic begins his quest for a joint-record eighth Wimbledon title when he faces Czech qualifier Vit Kopriva on Tuesday.

A knee injury has prevented Djokovic from playing since the French Open, but he assured fans he will be ready to play in the third Grand Slam of the year after coming through a practice session on Centre Court on Thursday.

Kopriva beat Henri Squire, Hugo Dellien and, most impressively, Richard Gasquet in qualifying to book his place in the main draw at SW19 for the first time in his career.

Tuesday's match will be the first meeting between the duo and Kopriva will be looking to use the element of surprise.

The 27-year-old also made it into the first round of the Australian Open, losing in five sets to Sebastian Korda. 

That was the first time he had played in the main draw of a Grand Slam and he also made his Masters 1000 debut this year, losing to Christopher O'Connell in the opening round in Miami.

Djokovic lost in the semi-finals in Melbourne and has played a limited schedule, with his last outing coming at the French Open in Paris. 

He is still to win a tournament in 2024 and will be looking to lay down a marker as he aims to emulate Roger Federer by winning eight times at Wimbledon.
