Novak Djokovic says that he loves playing on the grass at Wimbledon ahead of his third-round match at the All England Club today.

Wimbledon's number one seed Novak Djokovic has said that he loves playing tennis on grass.

The 26-year-old, winner of The Championships in 2011, has not complained about the state of the turf at SW19 this week, something that many have done because of seemingly more frequent slips.

Ahead of his third-round match against 28th seeded Frenchman Jeremy Chardy today, Djokovic was full of praise for the All England Club's courts.

"I love playing on the grass," PA Sport quotes the Serb as saying.

"My game is based on the baseline but this surface makes me come to the net and that makes me come to the net. That makes me be aggressive and I really like that."

Many expect Djokovic to reach the final where he is likely to face home favourite Andy Murray, whose biggest threats in his half of the draw - Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal - are already out.
