Djokovic, seeking to win a seventh major, hopes that should he win on Sunday, he will still receive a warm welcome in Scotland. The Serb spent time at Gleneagles with girlfriend Jelena Ristic last year and they even passed Murray's home town of Dunblane.

London: Novak Djokovic admits his friendship with Andy Murray, which began when they first clashed as 11-year-olds at a junior tournament in south-west France, will be tested to the full when they meet in Sunday's Wimbledon final.

The world's top two players will face each other for the 19th time with Djokovic seeking his second Wimbledon title and Murray bidding to become Britain's first men's champion since Fred Perry in 1936.

For two men born just seven days apart in 1987, it'll be the latest clash in a rivalry which started in Tarbes 16 years ago.
