Djokovic’s third-round match with Philipp Kohlschreiber was postponed after just one game last night.

Rain battered southern California meaning the Serbian will have to return to action tonight on a stacked order of play which also includes Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

However, before the world No 1 headed home, he dug out some grass courts and had a knock about with coach Marian Vajda.

The pair showed off some tricks during an extended rally – despite rain continuing to hammer down.

Djokovic posted the video on Twitter at 1am local time (8am GMT).

And he captioned it with: “It’s never too early to practice for Wimbledon.”

Djokovic will return to the All England Club this summer to try and defend his title.

The 31-year-old announced his return from injury in London last year by winning the 13th Grand Slam of his career.

He has since taken his tally up to 15 with success at the US Open and Australian Open.

Djokovic will attempt to break Nadal’s clay dominance at the French Open in June.

But first his primary objective is to lift the Indian Wells trophy.

He was made to battle past Bjorn Fratangelo in his opening match.

And he will resume the tie against Kohlschreiber on centre court.

Nadal is third on centre court following the conclusion of Rafael Nadal vs Diego Schwartzman.

Federer then kicks off the evening session with an all-Swiss showdown with Stan Wawrinka.
