For the fifth time in his career, Vasek Pospisil went up against Novak Djokovic on Wednesday morning in the second round of the Aegon International in Eastbourne, the final warm up event before Wimbledon.
And for the fifth time, the Canadian was defeated by the Serb 6-4, 6-3 despite ten aces from Pospisil and losing just ten first serve points in the match. Djokovic needed one break in each set to secure a straight sets victory while Pospisil was unable to convert any of his three break point chances.

Pospisil will now head to Wimbledon, where he reached the quarter-finals in 2015. He will be joined in the main draw by his compatriots Milos Raonic and wildcard recipient Denis Shapovalov. Steven Diez and Peter Polansky are trying to play their way through qualifying.
