The Serb, who won his first Wimbledon title in 2011, is aiming to bounce back from his thrilling five-set semi-final defeat by Rafael Nadal at the French Open earlier this month.
And the 26-year-old top seed has warned his rivals that he feels in good form heading into the third Grand Slam of the year.
“Everything is going according to plan and hopefully I can get in the best possible shape for the start of Wimbledon,” said Djokovic on his return to his traditional Wimbledon warm-up at The Boodles in Stoke Park.
“I know what I need to do in order to adjust from the slowest to the fastest service in a very short period of time. It is difficult but it’s the same for everyone.”
He added: “There’s no bigger motivation than playing in the most prestigious tournament in the world in our sport, the one that I always dreamed of winning,” said Djokovic.
“I won it two years ago and it’s definitely been the highlight of my career. I love playing at Wimbledon.
“Grass is the most special surface we have in the sport; the oldest also. We play on it only a few weeks a year so we better use it wisely.
“I don’t think grass is my most preferred surface, but over the years I’ve played really well at Wimbledon, reaching the semi-finals several times and winning a couple of years ago.
“I like playing on it and it makes me be aggressive on the court. Hopefully I can raise the level of my game as the tournament goes on.”
The crowd at The Boodles were thoroughly entertained by Novak Djokovic and Grigor Dimitrov on Thursday. Djokovic light-heartedly poked fun at Maria Sharapova’s on-court behaviour after having performed a strip-tease dance for the crowd as he changed his shirt and encouraging Dimitrov to do the same. Dimitrov didn’t have a spare shirt on court with him so his coach appeared with some and he had to comply. The pair even had time to exchange places with ball girls for a bit of fun.
