Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are both expected to play an exhibition event in England this week ahead of Wimbledon. Neither man has played any other grass-court events in the lead-up to the year’s third Grand Slam, so there is added interest in what their practice plans are.

Nadal is returning from radiofrequency treatment on his chronic foot problem, while Djokovic has not played since losing to his Spanish rival in the quarter-finals of Roland-Garros. We look at who else is in the exhibition line-up, and what to expect.
