The 12-time Grand Slam champion had contacted the LTA about playing at the Aegon International at Devonshire Park, starting this Friday.

The former world No.1 was offered a wildcard for the tournament and was expected to respond yesterday (Tuesday).

The Serbian star is now expected to make a final decision today (Wednesday).

Djokovic is stilling weighing up his options and trying to figure out the best way to prepare for Wimbledon following a disappointing run at the French Open.

He had considered taking a break from tennis following his surprise defeat to Dominic Thiem at Roland Garros.

The LTA said there is a possibility that Djokovic will participate at Eastbourne this year.

Controversial Aussie player Nick Kyrgios is also said to be considering a late wildcard but only if his hip responds to treatment following an injury sustained at, providing his hip is in good enough shape following an injury in the first round at Queen’s Club.
