British teenage wildcard Jack Draper will face world No.1 Novak Djokovic in the first round of Wimbledon. And fellow debutant Fran Jones will start against teenage sensation Coco Gauff.

The 19-year-old Draper is playing in his first ever Grand Slam and won his first two ATP Tour-level matches at Queen’s Club last week.

French Open champion Djokovic will be seeking to equal the male Grand Slam singles record held by Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal in SW19 – and the third leg of a calendar Grand Slam.

Jones, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder which saw her born with a thumb and three fingers on each hand, and only seven toes, will face American Gauff.

As a 15-year-old, Gauff was the breakout star in 2019 when she beat Venus Williams in the opening round and reached the fourth round.
